Johanna Billing

Project for a Revolution

17.09.-26.09.2008


Opening: Sept 16th, 7 pm

In Kooperation with KIZ - Kino im Augarten, Graz


Johanna Billing's video Project for a Revolution (2000) constructs a bridge between formal grammars of cinema and visual arts. Billing masterfully restages the introductory scene from Antonioni's Zabriskie Point, featuring an intense meeting of student activists at the campus during 1968 revolutionary tensions. The artist concentrates on generating the ambiguity of students' advanced state of expectation, between revolutionary alertness, passivity and boredom, thus commenting upon the possibilities of a real social engagement and rebellion in a present-day culture.
