Moving beyond the singular viewpoint, COMMON VISIONS proposes a critical look at a multitude of collaborative practices. Collective productions, works that interrogate the commons, public sphere and cultural memory, or that invest in a non-hierarchical relationship between those behind and in front of the camera can become generative tools to not only think through reality but beyond it into productive imaginaries. While focusing on an international scope of practices—primarily from the 1960s-70s and today—this series shows how multiplicity, liveness, uncertainty, camaraderie and friction can produce works both urgent and untidy, works that position their viewpoints and subjectivities between not only their makers but their viewers as well.

KwieKulik GAME ON MOREL’S HILL (GROUP ACTION) Poland, 1971/2006, 15 min, digital
Rather than focusing on collaboration behind the camera, this screening looks at the ways that literal bodies become incorporated within the field of vision, often in conjunction with movement, sound, landscape, and politics. Alice Anne Parker facilitates a continuous dissolve between 87 nude bodies, whereas Luca Maria Patella’s TERRA ANIMATA animates figures within an abstracted landscape. BORDERHOLE expresses the political and spatial implications of an imaginary border between Colombia and the United States through movement and news footage. KwieKulik’s experiment on Morel’s Hill shows two groups working out a philosophical argument strictly by means of visual communication.
