Elise Florenty (* 1978 Bordeaux) lives in Berlin and Paris. Her works are discussing the incoherence of those translations, which ultimately are the markers of our everyday life. Florenty scrutinizes writing and image, speech acts and those of reading with regard to their liminal experiences. Florenty studied the theory and history of cinema at the École Nationale Supérieure D’Arts De Paris Cergy, Fine Art in Lyon and Animation in Paris. She was an Artist-in-Residence at u.a. Seoul, Buenos Aires, Moly Sabata, Neapel and Worpswede. Her works were exhibited at u.a. the CNP Paris (2002), Galerie In Situ, Paris (2003), Jeu de Paume, Paris (2007), MAC de Lyon (2002), Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2009), Kunstverein Göttingen (2010) and Uqbar, Berlin (2010). Currently her works are on display in an exhibition at the Frac Ile-de-France in Paris.

Video Of The Month
In 2010, the series Video Of The Month, curated by Kathrin Becker, presented international artists from outside the collection. In 2011, selected works of the
n.b.k. collection can be seen online here. The emphasis is placed on young video art from Berlin that reflects the international art scene, and thematically underscores the emphases of the collection. Parallel to the presentation on the website, Video Of The Month will also be screened in the space of Video-Forum.
