How to resist to the movement of polarization sweeping through many harbors of our societies? How do we keep our doors open to the other? The thematic of this first edition of The Compiler Screenings dealt with issues related to borders and boundaries linked to notions of territories, national borders, personal behaviors and social and cultural boundaries in the every day.

The Compiler Screenings name comes from the curatorial project Compiler (2003 – 2012), a DVD series produced by the company Tweaklab in Basel that focused on video and audio works. The spirit of this project was passed on to White Frame moving away from the DVD format onto the screen, transforming the Compiler project into The Compiler Screenings. In cooperation with the Stadtkino Basel, this year’s edition showed works with a timespan of twenty five years of different artistic approaches and preoccupations of established and young Finnish and Swiss artists. We co-curated this edition with Timo Soppela, director of the artists’ association MUU from Helsinki.

This project was made possible thanks to financial support from the Christoph Merian Foundation and the Division of Cultural Affairs Basel-Stadt.

Following their Halifax residency in 2013, the two artists created the collaborative mapping game Tracing Tracks part of the Canadian exhibition project available online at http://tracingtracks.com/.

This project was made possible thanks to financial support from the Mobiliar Genossenschaft, Casimir Eigensatz Stiftung, Dr. Georg und Josi Guggenheim Stiftung, Stadt Luzern FUKA-Fonds and the Canadian Council for the Arts.

Max Philipp Schmid's artistic results can be read and interpreted within the two principles found in the theme of Frenetic Standstill. Schmid seems to question our human fascination with controlling time, with trying to take apart time's continuity and reconstruct a time scale. He is able through his technical manipulation of the medium, to go beyond the simple representation of a moment, and time almost stands still. He slows our gaze and for a brief moment, we are almost able to catch the unattainable. At the same time, we are reminded, through his manipulated attempts in his reenactments and found footage material, that causality remains unchanged.

Frenetic Standstill encompassed three video installations; Wald (Forest 2007)Der Wanderer (The Wanderer 2007) and Das Gespenst des Glücks (The Ghost of Happiness 2011). The curatorial line of this exhibition drew from a common denominator found in these installations: the gap between our frenetic wishes to 'get there' and our struggles to achieve something desired, promised, or predicted.
