It is a knife because
is a film made at home, it is born by processes of film-making and parenthood crushing into each other. The film carefully challenges notions of authority. The authority of parents, of image producers, and that which lurks outside the window. Is it a knife because… entangles love and violence with the most honest attempt to understand where light comes from.
Questions is a discursive practice that started in 2009 out of the necessity to find new ways to polylogue when addressing political and artistic discourse. Questions enables the participants to continuously reformulate ideas, theories and concepts while advancing towards understanding, misunderstanding, poetics, or all at once.
The discussion is held only by asking questions, each participant can ask as many questions as wanted and there is no predetermined order of speakers. Each question needs to relate to the question or questions before it. Each question has to be directed to all participants and not to a specific person. Each participant can repeat a question that was asked earlier in the discussion or ask for 30seconds of silence.
Sirah Fioghel Brutmann und Titan Efrat (both °1983 in Tel Aviv) have been working in collaboration for several years. Their practice focuses on the performative aspects of the moving image. In their work they aim to mark the spatial and durational potentialities of reading of images – moving or still; the relations between spectatorship and history; the temporality of narratives and memory and the material surfaces of image production.
