Key topic 2017:
Following the focus in 2013 on “EXPANDED NARRATION. Das neue Erzählen”
and “EXPANDED SENSES. Wahrnehmung erweitern und Grenzen verschieben” in
2015, respectively in 2017 the key topic of B3 will be “ON DESIRE. Über
Desire as longing, wish, lust or hope and its translation into moving
images will be explored in the three regular B3 modules Parcours,
Festival and Campus/Market from an artistic, societal, political and
historical perspective, and critically examined regarding its function
as a motivating force for shaping the future and developing utopias. B3
will look equally at the desire of the individual, as well as the appeal
to and mobilization of collective longings and hopes. The focus will
not only be on realizing this desire in moving images on all familiar
storage media and via all channels (in ways varying from the artistic to
the purely formal), but also on exploring borders and looking to the
"It is easy to assign media technologies and in particular the
moving image both in their past and present the task of wish fulfilment,
a task “reality” cannot perform or simply rejects. The desire for
alternative or replacement realities is evident at an early stage in the
film industry’s division into various genre such as comedy or
science-fiction, and in the increasing variations in postproduction.
Simultaneously, in connection with computer games and social media we
find the psychosocial argument of displacement activity, and also
artificial perfection (avatars), simulation and immersion in general, a
desire for surrogates. At any rate, it is possible to talk of media
technologies as a means of dreaming, which in turn raises two key
questions regarding these techniques, namely: what is the intention of
these images, what wishes do they fulfil? (...) In adopting as its key topic “ON DESIRE. Über das Begehren”
the B3 biennial of the moving image 2017 addresses this dual aspect of
desire as “dream images” and wish fulfilment and the “productive desire”
of the wish machine."
