Join us at the FMC Screening Room (475 Park Avenue South, 6th Floor) on SATURDAY, MAY 13th, at 1pm, for a fascinating program of films examining the mutability of human identity through doubling, fracture, and dissolution, curated by Julia Curl!
The Surrealist movement reimagined the body as multiple: through gender play and an exploration of the uncanny, its early avant-garde artists engaged in a deliberate fracturing and recomposition of the self. Multiple exposure, mirrors, and creative framing methods provided new tools for destabilizing the viewer and provoking a conception of the individual not rooted in a unified, singular “ideal.” This selection of films follows in that legacy — some overtly inspired by it, some not — and examines the mutability of human identity through doubling, fracture, and dissolution.
Total Run Time: 65 minutes.
