SELECTION OF THE SWISS PROGRAM ON VIMEO FOR 168 HOURS
April 17 - May 2, 2016
White Frame (Basel), Groupe Intervention Vidéo (GIV, Montreal) and Bildwechsel (Hamburg) joined forces to present Rendering Time. The project was an initiative from White Frame who wished to underline the 50th anniversary of women’s suffrage introduced in Basel on June 26th, 1966. This one-day event saluted through five curated programs the contribution of women’s artists subversiveness of convention of norms and forms, challenging themselves and expanding our viewer experience.
Furthermore, we highlighted the continuous work of two organisations: Groupe Intervention Vidéo (GIV) and Bildwechsel dedicated to present a panoramic view of women’s artists working in the media arts. The event was presented in Basel with the partnership of Neues Kino and in Hamburg with Metropolis Kino.
