Directors Lounge Berlin Logo

February 5-15. 2009, Berlin Mitte, Friedrich Str. 112A

Experimental cinema, short films, new media art, many terms for many different ways to create art works with moving images.

Many of them show their work for the first time in Europe, several films will be screened in world premiere.

LiveBox installation:

Tim Geers: USA, looped video. “Eleanor”, 2007, (3:11 min) gorgeously shot with reminiscences of Planet Earth and other wildlife documentaries, yet subtly critiquing the US involvement in the Middle East. The piece is shot tightly capturing crickets caught in a liquid substance, presumably oil. The close-up shots depict the bugs devouring and succumbing to the liquid. The piece is open enough to engage a dialogue on excess as well as war.


LiveBox is pleased to announce “I want to make a video about you”, by Chie Yamayoshi (2005, 12:00 min), will be screened at the Flint Institute of Art this December.

A young woman invites strangers found on the Internet to act out intimate roles, friend, family member or boyfriend. The piece unpretentiously delves into issues of cyber culture, racial stereotypes, intimacy and anonymity, danger and fantasy.


LiveBox at Around The Coyote Festival 2008

ATC Video and New Media Arts Curated by LiveBox

This year’s ATC space for the Festival was the curatorial inspiration for digital art. The site is designed for performance and its beautiful Beaux Arts features and Art Deco Architecture serve as stage. Performance art has a long and intimate history with video, going back to the birth of video art in the 60s. Today technology has broadened the possibilities and nature of performance in video and new media. This year’s media program explores the rich context of performance and the diversity of platforms deployed by artists in this arena. Participating artists: Youngsuk Altieri, Wojciech Gilewicz, Sonja Hinrichsen, Moon Na, Hye Yeon Nam, Second Front (Gazira Babeli, Yael Gilks, Bibbe Hansen, Doug Jarvis, Scott Kildall , Patrick Lichty, and Liz Solo), and collaborative group James Garver, Peter Kyle and Holley Farmer.

Echoes of MOD 70s


The artists in this exhibition echo the saturated colors, intensity and inventiveness of this decade.

LiveBox Gallery appropriates the holiday shopping season creating greater access to video and new media art. LiveBox exhibited video and drawings at Hejfina, an eclectic lifestyle shop on Milwaukee Ave.


"Unfolding Space"

Julieta Aguilera

Unfolding Space is a virtual reality environment that explores higher dimensional navigation on a grid structure linked to gesture. The experience cycles through color, like the times of the day, atmospheric conditions, seasons or eras, seeking to internalize the sublime in the evolving forms and sounds perceived.


"Prickle Britches"

Jill Johnston-Price


Open House Project at the Jacobi home on October 14, installation, sculpture, photography, painting, and video. Curated by Jodie Jacobi "This show is an outpost between “gallery districts” and “block parties”; a celebration of artists and the community".

LiveBox curated video for the show.




ROLL 42 second loop

Robert Ladislas Derr

"Roll" was a playful exercise conducted in Vancouver, Canada for the Pre/amble: Festival of Art and Psychogeography. Reminiscent of childhood activity, Robert Ladislas Derr partakes in a dizzying roll down a hill. Roll was a chance to introduce a sense of the irrational in the course of daily routine.

“ROLL” was projected on the front of the building, overlooking I90 at the North Ave exit.



Gosia Koscielak Studio and Gallery and the residents of 1646 N. Bosworth Ave graciously offered LiveBox the use of their building for projection. .
