Mythen für die Zukunft 1

3 video installations by Ines Birkhan & Bertram Dhellemmes

Cabaret Renz, Wien, 9>31 December 2005

The 3 video installations composing Mythen für die Zukunft 1 are based on the principle of the video novel, where the multimedia process of combined images, sounds and texts allows an exploration of an ‘extended field of literature’.

They intend to propose a complexity of perception that requires the full involvement of the audience, as well as openness at different intellectual and emotional levels, thus renewing the fundamental experience of reading.

Literature and poetry being the historical main means of myths transmission make writing the proper medium to establish new values and new figures, even those of our technological era.
New medias that were prophesized to endanger writing proved themselves a precious support to it, and their open aesthetics give space to multiplicity of tangent and interlaced experiences.
