In partnership with Electronic Arts Intermix, Dia Art Foundation presents a selection of films to accompany the Dia:Beacon exhibition Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress, the first North American retrospective dedicated to the German artist.
Constituting Posenenske’s only experiment with moving image, Monotonie ist schön (Monotony Is Nice, 1968) features a series of Super 8 films shot spontaneously while traveling through the Netherlands. Shot through the car window, the amateur footage highlights the artist’s fascination with the repetitive succession of industrial infrastructure—bridges, dykes, and roads—through the car’s window. Monotony Is Nice captures the unexpected formal qualities of the manmade landscape.
Renowned filmmaker Gerry Schum’s Happening Abend (Dies alles Herzchen wird einmal dir gehören) (Happening Night [All this, darling, will one day be yours], 1967) documents the raucous event of the same name organized by Paul Maenz and Peter Roehr at Galerie Dorothea Loehr. Happening Nightalso features the ephemeral artworks conceived for the occasion by Posenenske as well as the other local and international artists who participated in the infamous evening.
Predating his pioneering broadcasts Land Art (1968) and Identifications (1970), Schum’s television documentary Konsumkunst – Kunstkonsum (Consumption Art – Art Consumption, 1968) investigates the rise of multiples as art objects and explores industrial reproduction processes within the flourishing West German art market of the time. Posenenske’s Vierkantrohre Serie D and DW (Square Tubes Series D and DW, 1967– ) are showcased among a variety of approaches to serial and affordable art production.

This program presents three recent works foregrounding issues of temporality by veteran filmmaker James Benning, whose roots lie in Structuralist idioms. Based on footage shot over some four years during intermittent visits to the Spiral Jetty, casting a glance (2007) eschews a documentary approach in favor of one that engages notions of duration and entropy fundamental to Robert Smithson's aesthetic. TEN SKIES (2004) is comprised of ten skyscapes of ten minutes each; 13 LAKES (2004) depicts, also in ten-minute static shot segments, thirteen large lakes from across the United States.

This twelve-hour video documents in real time the activity in Mexico City's Plaza de la Constitución, known as the Zócalo, a site of frequent civic demonstrations and protests. The video begins at dawn with the raising of the flag on the Zócalo's prominent central flagpole, surveys the sweeping movements of the pole's shadow and the patterns of movement of people within the massive plaza, and concludes at dusk, when the flag is brought back down. Within the context of Audubon Terrace's historic Beaux-Arts architecture and its role as a cultural and educational hub, this screening juxtaposes two diverging models of open urban spaces and their social uses.

This final event in the series examines the diversity of practices of seven young artists working in video and based in Barcelona. Includes recent works by artists Luz Broto Lema, Carles Congost, Ana García Pineda, Julia Montilla, Liz K. Peñuela, Mireia C. Saladrigues, and Ignacio Uriarte. While the artists included in this program use distinct approaches to video, they share an engagement with language: the codes and signs of spoken and written text; conversation and interview as artistic technique; and the lexicons of pop (television and music), classic cinema, and theater.Dia at the Hispanic SocietyTUREDD/MM/YYYYFREQ=DAILY;Video program: Cosmopolitan Barcelona, selected shorts

John James Audubon's New York farm, Minniesland, once occupied 40 wilderness acres of what is now the Washington Heights Neighborhood in Upper Manhattan. This cinematic tribute to the universal pastime of bird watching is a nod to the farmland that once comprised this region, Audubon's life work with birds, and the timeless current of artists' studies of wildlife. This screening will showcase artist-made short films and videos on birds and natural history in a variety of genres including performance, documentary, experimental, animation, audio works, and found footage. Includes works by Simone Bennett, Klara Hobza, Nina Katchadourian Emily Kuehn, Julia Oldham, and Dana Sherwood and the Black Forest Fancies, among others.Dia at the Hispanic SocietyTUREDD/MM/YYYYFREQ=DAILY;Lessons in the Sky: A Filmic Tribute to Audubon.
