A short film about Yuri Gagarin with music by UNKLE. First staged as a series of video art installations, at the National Center for Contemporary Art Moscow, KOZMOS was an artists’ collective formed by curator Margaret Cox, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of man's first flight into space, the flight of the Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on board the Soviet spacecraft Vostok. Russian painters, photographers, filmmakers and theatre designers, together with the British Electronic group UNKLE collaborated to mark this momentous event in human history.

9:30 Mia Makela - Almodovar Remix

Mia Makela works in the fields of real-time audiovisual performance, experimental video and documentary. Her visual language has a mystical dream-like narrative approach and has been described as a digital version of William Blake's poetry. She processes her material in real-time and performs in tandem with musicians. Makela, an innovator in the field of live cinema, has shown her work and lectured all over the globe.

10:30 Eyesonthewall - Regenesis

'‘REGENESIS’ will emerge as an experimental and fluid synthesis of the analogue and digital, the improvisational and participatory elements, and the intention is to alter the perceptual encounter, so the ‘REGENESIS’ will suggest the audience to re-engage with the imaginative layers of experience and decode the meaning of transformation. The focal point of the show is the simultaneity of illusion and equilibrium, of transition and puzzlement, of intensification and growth.

 

  noname
 

11:30 Noname (Nerea Castro) - Echoes

Noname is the definition used to signify an anonymous or non-specific person, whose true identity is unknown or to be use in hypothetical case. Echoes is the distorted voice telling us who we are and what we want, a world of dreams and nightmares.
