Key topic 2017:

On Desire

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 das Begehren.”

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 future.

"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."
Prof. Dr. Marc Ries, sociology / media theory, University of Art and Design Offenbach
