The exhibition shows a selection of films by the German moviemaker and artist Loretta Fahrenholz (*1981). What seems on first sight to be disparate, can be viewed as a series of unconventional portraits of small communities, as they are omnipresent today and ever-changing just like user groups: Shared apartment (Haust, 2010), artist group (Grand Openings Return of the Blogs, 2012 as well as Ditch Plains, 2013), theater ensemble (Implosion, 2011), patchwork family (My Throat, My Air, 2013). Each portrait is subjugated to a specific genre (dance film, feature film, documentary, play), through which the viewer is subtly alienated. In cooperation with the Fridericianum Kassel a new film is in development and will premiere in Kassel and Zurich in 2016.
