DIZZINESS — A Resource

Taumel – The Pleasures and the Fears of Being Dizzy

Workshop in Tel Aviv

January 11 to January 14, 2015

Participants:
Vivian Ostrovsky, artist (USA)
Ruth Gadish, artist (ISR)
Ruth Anderwald, artist (AUT)
Leonhard Grond, artist (AUT)

The workshop Taumel – The Pleasures and the Fears of Being Dizzy will shed new light on disorientation and on how film artists throughout history use (optical) disorientation and confusion as a paradigm in their work. What can be gained by losing one’s grip, by simply letting go? What pictures arise with dizziness? Together artists look into the emergence, variation, transformation, and adaptation of the visual effects of dizziness in a sense, which implies both physical and mental symptoms. There Vivian Ostrovsky, Ruth Gadish, Ruth Anderwald and Leonhard Grond decide to start working on a Moving Image Archive that shows the wide spectrum from Early Cinema to contemporary video art. This expanding collection seeks to provide an overview of artworks that are related to ‘Dizziness–A Resource’. Meanwhile many others have contributed.
