The XLterrestrials + CiTiZEN KiNO

The XLterrestrials are collective-mind organisms, who operate a migratory arts and praxis lab (maapL), which is currently focused on experimenting with presenting media in new live performance formats.

CiTiZEN KiNO, the name of our most recent project, is a hybrid of film, theater and the internet. We screen a rare collection of art films, tactical media, and a fresh harvest of the planet’s strangest and/or most relevant digital and “webbed” behaviors in order to better navigate the media landscapes we now inhabit.  In these precarious “technotopian” times, we believe it’s urgent to get our feet back on community ground. The revolutionaries will not be hypnotized !

Paolo Podrescu, aka dj/vj/xj and Doktor Podinski., is a co-founding member and a “fully unlicensed psychomedia analyst” since 2004., currently based in Berlin.

He assembled these still images which are from posters (and vj remixes) used for C-KiNO programs in 2011 and 2012:

1. CiTiZEN KiNO #1: “Launch” w/ image remixed from the film La Antena (2007), by Esteban Sapir

2. CiTiZEN KiNO #7: “Electric Sheep Revisited” ( a tribute to P.K. Dick ) *

3. CiTiZEN KiNO #6 : ” If Not Mutants, Then Who ?” with image remixed from Don DeCarlo

4.CiTiZEN KiNO #4 : “#8: Don’t Just Click There, DO SOMETHING ! “

5. CiTiZEN KiNO #13 : We Want The Whole F–kin Bakery! ( a tribute to Rosa Luxemburg )

6. CiTiZEN KiNO #9 : “Ground Control To Major Tom” w/ image remixed from The Man Who Fell To Earth (1976) by Nicholas Roeg

Note: “Electric Sheep Revisited”, along with “Replicant Memories” ( #5 ), were two C-Kino programs to analyze the work of Philip K. Dick, and Ridley Scott’s highly problematic Hollywood adaptation. In Sept. of 2011, Scott confirmed he would be making a sequel to Blade Runner, upon it’s 30th anniversary in 2012. We feel it is an appropriate time to illuminate the deeper relevance of the book, which was a profound warning of a world left in ruins by nuclear technology and the increasingly dehumanized and de-natured environments wrought by corporate agendas.  We plan on revisiting this material and performing newer versions this year.

WARNING: This is Not another program for more media consumption, Not another downloading of mesmerizing bits in a deluge of irrealities. THIS IS A DECLARATION OF MEDIA SELF-DEFENSE ! ” The XLterrestrials
