The One Minutes Series ‘Life/Body hacks’ curated by Pernilla Manjula Philip (2024, NL, 19 min)
This curated series features 18 one-minute videos submitted by artists from diverse locations, including Argentina, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, and Romania.
»As we rely on each other, technology, and healthcare to fulfill our needs, this series directs attention to the areas that fall in-between—those needs that prove challenging to articulate or, perhaps, are literally hard to reach. The exchange of personal experiences and perspectives occurs through do-it-yourself methods and ways of living that transcend the standardized norms of the biomedical-industrial complex. Disability, debility, and illness are conveyed through stories of lived experiences, used to produce and share knowledge.« Pernilla Manjula Philip
Participating artists: Milan Gress, Amos Peled, Mattia Friso, Irina Bako, Xingrong Qiao, Alejandra Morote Peralta, Joaquin Wall & Mariano Garcia, Philippine Talamona, Jingran He, Maartje Jaquet, Ksenia Gorokhova, Sara Nygård, Mel Keane, Katinka Harmsen, Hafsa Moin, Ruben Duijst, KRNago, Theodore Colin-Morrison.
'Flare' by Kate Blamire (2023, DE, 27 min)
Kate Blamire is a non-binary person from Berlin living with an autoimmune disease. This film is a first-person poetic account of their search for freedom and identity as they navigate in and out of hospitals.
»Flare has been a process of making sense of my experience of chronic illness. In my own personal lockdown before lockdowns became a shared experience, I realized I was becoming invisible. I felt urged to create a narrative not based on the interpretation of my condition by the medical institution, or by someone else not living it, but as told by myself. Due to the limitations of my health condition, I had to adapt the process of filming to whatever was possible and at reach. With this film, I wish to give a voice to the experience of chronic illness, to the power that comes from being slow, to rhythms and the secrets of the sick, resisting victim narratives. Flare is a film made in alignment with the tides of my illness and capacities, and is testament to the healing strength of joy, community, and creativity.«
