In this exhibition “Slow Down!” does not have anything to do with the concept of speed. Instead, it explores work with 16 mm film as an attitude, informed by the economic use of the material, the efficiency in the implementation, and the concentration in the interaction with the camera (isolation/intimacy). The physical presence of the medium represents a potential form of resistance against the relentless exploitation and dissemination of images – a pause in today’s image-controlled media landscape.

The presented works are also a call for the visitors to “slow down”: They are metaphors in their content, reduced to the basics, to observations, visualisations, and communication forms. The idea becomes image. Viewing requires time.
