QUIET ODD #12 _ Musings

Alejandro Cesarco & Călin Man / reVoltaire

with an introduction by n.b.k. Video Forum curator Silke Wittig




The first video that will be screened at QUIET ODD as part of The NBK Series is Alejandro Cesarco’s Musings (2013, 15:35), which was co-produced by the n.b.k. Video-Forum. The work retells a series of anecdotes regarding premonitions, fate, dreams, and other types of messages that are the generative source for creative work. The selected stories also have in common that the resulting creative works have very much to do with death and mortality. Musings proposes to triangulate the ideas of inspiration, influence and inheritance.

Alongside it, the Romanian artist whose work we present is Călin Man aka reVoltaire, member of the well-know moving image group Kinema Ikon in Arad. His film 5 ready media files by Vasile Cârlova (2012, 11:27) is part of a project initiated by Ion Dumitrescu and Ștefan Tiron, based on unused soundtrack by Rodion and rare footage from various family, city and group scenes by reVoltaire and Zsiga Ioan, dedicated to the fabulous poet Vasile Cârlova.

Curator Silke Wittig will introduce the session and present her selection for this year’s program.


QUIET ODD in 2017 functions as a collaboration between ODD, the Czech Centre in Bucharest and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.). Part of P R I V A T E L Y.
