McLuminations 14:1 Counter-Environment Infrastructures and Substrata of the Global Village

 

Discussion with Baruch Gottlieb, Jamie Allen and David Gauthier

transmediale and the Marshall McLuhan Salon of the Embassy of Canada present a new edition of the discussion series McLuminations, “Counter-Environment - Infrastructures and Substrata of the Global Village”, moderated by Baruch Gottlieb and featuring the transmediale 2014 residency artists Jamie Allen and David Gauthier.

Together they will analyse the artists’ understanding of “infrastructure critique” attempting to elaborate the connections with and departures from McLuhan’s concept of “Media.”

The Marshall McLuhan Salon has the largest audiovisual archive about the media philosopher Herbert Marshall McLuhan outside of Canada, and will be open during the festival.

McLuminations, a special series of video discussion events

Initiated and directed by Baruch Gottlieb as a special series of events during the McLuhan Centennial Year 2011, McLuminations aims to elaborate in a form of lively discussions the electronic media experience. It employs archival video material of Marshall McLuhan in attempts to articulate the contours of what McLuhan calls the “in depth” participation of the inhabitants of an instantaneous electronic media environment.

McLuminations 14:1  is a cooperation between transmediale and the Marshall McLuhan Salon of the Embassy of Canada in Berlin.

Doors open: 13:30
 
The event is in English, admission is free. Please register below.
Please present a valid photo-ID at the door and allow sufficient time for Embassy security.

Berlinale Forum Expanded Exhibition with Tyler Hagan

In the Similkameen 

“Driving east along the Crowsnest Highway in British Columbia, Canada, as you exit the old mining town of Hedley and look to the southwest, an early 20th-century white chapel sits rising from a hill in front of a mountain backdrop. Glacial till is scattered across the valley and the chapel walls glow in the sharp sunlight. Although it looks like one of the many abandoned buildings alongside this country highway, the church is still used. Today the relationship between the Aboriginal peoples of Canada and the church continues to play a crucial role in the fabric of the country’s constitution. Quietly straddling a fine line between assimilation, non-relevance, and possible redemption, Christianity and First Nations continue their complex and troubled relationship. There remains a collective memory of terror and intergenerational damage to First Nations people and communities. Today many of these buildings still stand, either as abandoned vessels of the past, or functioning spaces of worship and communion. All remain on hallowed ground.” (Tyler Hagan)

In the Similkameen explores an idyllic white church located on the Upper Similkameen Reserve and the land around it long enough to place it, to learn its history and to meet its present while confronting the conflicted position of the church on First Nations reserves in Canada. It’s a highly personal undertaking for Hagan, who, since obtaining his Métis citizenship, has struggled to reconcile his suburban Christian upbringing with the blighted history of the church in Indigenous communities.

The Métis filmmaker Tyler Hagan was born in Vancouver, Canada in 1986. He received his BFA in film from Simon Fraser University, where he co-founded the filmmaking collective Shakey Films. He lives and works in Vancouver.

Canada, 2013, interactive web documentary, single-channel video loop, photographic prints . Similkameen Crossroads is produced by Jennifer Moss, Dana Dansereau and the NFB Digital Studio. Executive producer: Loc Dao.
