CHRISTIAN JANKOWSKI ART MARKET TV
2008
Invited to the art fair Art Cologne, Jankowski implants an unusual sales format for modern art in the professional art market. Using a teleshopping format, a presenter looks for a market for works by Franz West or Jeff Koons—and fails. The model experiment is incompatible with the location. Highbrow and lowbrow, professional and trivial, remain distinct and come across as separate worlds. Only Christian Jankowski gets any benefit from the happening—another work of art is born.

Neon Love was filmed during Tobias Bernstrup's performance at The Hall in Istanbul November 16th 2007. The Hall is a former Armenian church that has been transformed into a night club. In the video Bernstrup is performing his song 'Neon Love' dressed in shiny latex and makeup accompanied by theatrical smoke and video projected stage visuals inspired by Kraftwerks classical film 'Neon Lights'. Bernstrup's video projections shows old neon signs filmed at night in Berlin. His mixes classicism, sci-fi, gothic noir, fin-de-siècle Weimar or digitized De Chirico with computer game aesthetics and electronic music. Bernstrup's robotic movements and androgynous stage persona reminds us of the avatars and characters as seen in his animated videos.

NOCTURNE ARABESQUE (EXCERPT) POLA SIEVERDING
2009, 3:44 min.
A portrait of the multiple images of manhood. Hide and seek in a night-time labyrinth of bodies, faces, tangencies, textiles, lights and obscurities.
The footage is at once documentary and oneiric, hypnotical resonance and magical happening reflected in the idea of beauty.
A study on the intimity of dance and extasy, slowed down to contemplate.
