Showtime, a video art exhibition with international artists

Join us for AB Contemporary's season opening exhibition, Showtime, featuring films by Mihai Grecu, Ericka Beckman, Keren Cytter, Tova Mozard, Matei Bejenaru, Mircea Nicolae, Jim Finn, Natalia LL, Dor Guez and others.

The exhibition will take the form of a cinema within the gallery, and each artist's video will be featured in one of three categories: Poetics of Resistance, Personal Confessions, and Broken Utopias. Each of these three themes will play at certain listed times, thus offering the visitors the possibility to engage with the work in a more dedicated fashion.

    sexistische ausgerichtete Performance sind mir zuwider, auch dann wenn es nicht zu eigentlichen Akthandlungen ausartet, aber nur schon angedeutet wird

    Die Brotzeitungs Performance war wiederum etwas spannendes und kunstvolles

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
