Metahaven, Recent Work

Wednesday, May 24 | 8PM

Designers, filmmakers and artists Metahaven will discuss their practice and screen segments of their films. From propaganda, psychological warfare and timeline occupation, to virtual reality and “post-fact”, recurrent themes in Metahaven’s work range from the geopolitical to the personal and bypass the usual perspective of the documentary and the essay film. Their “cinema for the interface” consists of slow, deep, epic shots, low-grade YouTube fragments, animations, digital surfaces, and hybrid narrations, combining poetry and fiction in an intense investigation of the real.
