< 30.3.2016 > CiTiZEN KiNO #52: Mysteries of the Radical Organisms, Spektrum Berlin
A hybrid of cinema hacking, tactical new media, performance, forum and fertile resistance !
Our TitanPad for collecting media bits and ideas for Ck#52. ( many viewable clips already listed )
Gentech / Chinese sperm / Dusan Makavejev /
Mysteries of the organism / Wilhelm Reich / Arundhati Roy / David Lynch / Womb Envy / Sexuality / A.I + Robots / Green Scare + Green Revolution / Ecocide / planetary habitat / Mind-Body-Spirit / Feminism / Matriarchy / Patriarchy / Post-Fordism / Extrastatecraft / Noetic Sciences …
C-Kino 52 begins by revisiting the work of Dusan Makavejev, and his incredible mash-up deconstruction of sexual liberation and political orientation as an exile from both the communist and capitalist landscapes of his times. Thrown out of Yugoslavia for his WR: Mysteries of The Organism in 1971, he managed to become a unique cinematic flower and thorn in the social + cultural orders that keep our desires caught in strange contortions.
This night’s resistance begins in the mysteries of living things !
Ahhh, the lovely rush to turn everything into commodities and/or weaponry knows no bounds, borders or taboos. Soon we will have swift corporate think-a-like Bots all around us to make sure you don’t stray too far from your self-driving bubbles, pre-packaged joy-rides, shopping malls and screen-time.
Are theory + praxis in regard to Biopolitics now stuck in 1980s Foucault readers and neutered academic pens ?! … maybe there’s a few notable exceptions … and please feel free to share with us any works that have managed to attack with fresh and vital energies !

for notes on Franco "Bifo" Berardi + Maurizio Lazzarato + Matteo Pasquinelli , etc. ]
But of course no one could possibly keep up with all the breakfast brand surreals of 21st century techno-industrial fascism soaking in a no mans’ land of blood, GMO-milk, machines and money.
So rather than try and list all the interior designs of the factored lives and slaughterhouses, we imagine what it would be like to reclaim the truly living organisms, radical enough to refuse the mass reproduction of mechanical and systemic chopping blocks !
We go for a full flesh and blood provocation, and a little taste of the transgressive cinema – historical + current – that will not reduce itself to flat screens, but open up the room for riotous laughter, strange eroticism and true strategies for survival of the organic species and ways of life.
Coming to Liepzig on April 3oth… a more “fleshed-out”version ;) … and more time to submit your suggestions and thoughts at the Titan Pad above…
more details coming soon !
