Virtuosic Siblings

Virtuosic Siblings: Berlin—Los Angeles Festival of Film and Art


The dynamic creative exchange between the Berlin-based artists-in-residence of Villa Aurora -- and their Los Angeles counterparts -- is showcased in a series of "film couplets"—a unique screening program that reflects the mutual influences and reciprocal relationships between Berliners and Angelenos, but also their productive oppositions. Featured artists include Carsten Nicolai, Doug Aitken, John Baldessari, Rosa Barba, Maya Deren, Thomas Florschuetz, Eva Grubinger, Natascha Sadr Haghighian/ Judith Hopf/ Florian Zeyfang, Werner Herzog, Laura Horelli, Christian Jankowski, Liza Johnson, William E. Jones, Ann Kaneko, Thomas Koener, M+M, Corinna Schnitt, Masako Tanaka, Diana Thater, Kerry Tribe and Klaus Weber. Many of the works presented in this program were developed as part of artist residencies at Villa Aurora.

Curated by Ariane Beyn (Berlin) and Zaia Alexander (Los Angeles). The screening at REDCAT concludes a three-night series that includes presentations at Villa Aurora, on Nov 15 at 7:30 pm, and Goethe Institut, on Nov 16 at 8 pm. Virtuosic Siblings is the third in a series of events organized by Villa Aurora in celebration of the 40-year anniversary of the inauguration of Berlin and Los Angeles as sister cities. This program is made possible in part by a grant from the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles, and by the Richard Schuller Fund.
