➔Sordid Scandal @ Tate Modern

Like many other video essays by Ulman, Sordid Scandal functions both as a video piece and as a live performance while mixing fiction, a confessional style, academic or scientific language and historical anecdotes. Taking the shape of a powerpoint presentation, this piece narrates the process of filming El Planeta and the events that might have led to its production, spanning scenes of Spain’s colonial history to descriptions of Ulman’s own father in court who, accused of fraud, used images of Ulman’s fictional performances against her and resulting in the eviction that left Ulman’s mother homeless. Attempting to grasp the repercussions of the fictional on the real, the script weaves, in a comedic style, dark personal memories with the technicalities of filming in a small town, restraining grants systems, globalist deceptions and the story of Justina and Ana Belén, a criminal mother-daughter duo from Gijón, which the film is loosely based on. Sordid Scandal is a piece commissioned by Tate Modern.

➔El Planeta "A comedy about eviction"    

El Planeta is a feature film exploring contemporary class-relations, poverty, female desire and the intrinsically complicated filial relationships of mothers and daughters. In this dark comedy, a daughter is forced to return home after the death of her father, reconnecting with her eccentric mother who hustles to maintain the semblances of their middle class lifestyle in the face of an impending eviction.

➔New Methods Workshop / Artist Residency @ AltroVe Venezia

"This conversation happened at the end of "New Methods" workshop which Amalia Ulman taught in Venice in the occasion of her residency for AltroVe Project. Following the process which led her creating the fictive character for her first feature film, she used imagination as a tool to approach a group of students and, at the same time, and to experience a new method acting. What follows is a conversation about that three weeks session." Stefano Mudu

➔Art & Porn @ Kunsthal Charlottenbor,  Copenhagen, DK

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of lifting the ban on visual pornography in Denmark, Kunsthal Charlottenborg presents in collaboration with ARoS the group exhibition Art & Porn. The exhibition presents the development in art from the 60s legalization of visual pornography to the current fourth-wave feminism, and highlights how art is influenced by changing the law on pornography. What are the implications when the boundaries of what citizens may be faced with in public spaces change from one day to the next?

➔Mirrors @ Museum Rietberg,  Zurich, CH

‘How do I look, what does my face tell me?’ Day for day we rely on mirrors to inform us about how we look and how we feel. The mirror is a lifelong companion with whom we usually harbour an intimate, although at times self-forgotten and distanced relationship. But what do we actually know about the mirror, its history and usage, and what do mirrors have to say about us?

➔Hate Speech @ Künstlerhaus, Graz

Against the backdrop of current developments in politics and the media, the Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien (KM–), in Graz is focusing on freedom of speech, its use and its abuse. "Hate Speech: Aggression and Intimacy" presents international positions in contemporary art that address forms of ever more aggressive communication and the effects of social media, as well as their media-related facets. Taking center stage here are people communicating through social media with their urge to express themselves socially, with their media-driven dedication and identity-questioning game of anonymity and role-playing. At the same time, however, these individuals yearn for their own personal boundaries and visibility, apparently on a quest for an updated kind of individuality and intimacy. To an increasing extent, the reactions from parts of the Internet community are ever more alarming, with people outdoing each other in their expressions of hostility, resentment, and hate. Other issues related to freedom of opinion, art, and press accompany the artistic investigations found in the project "Hate Speech: Aggression and Intimacy."

Between 1760 and 1840 the Industrial Revolution put us in our place. In fact, it quite literally put us in queues, in boxes, on conveyor belts, up chimneys, living on the streets or in suburbia – it made us the cogs in the machines with the sole intention of profit for those born into wealth...

➔Book Presentation: Inscription by Karl-Magnus Johansson

What conditions inscription? Why are certain statements allowed to emerge in archival substrates? These questions are asked in this publication as it explores the concept of inscription—the archival moment that is constituted by the materialization of statements. It does so by including approaches from a variety of academic fields such as media theory, philosophy and critical theory, as well as works by practitioners of contemporary art. The publication includes contributions by Akram Zaatari, Amalia Ulman, Anne de Vries, Cecilia Grönberg, D-M Withers, Hannah Quinlan, Jenna Sutela, Karl-Magnus Johansson, Lori Emerson, Martin Kohout, Martine Syms, Monira al Qadiri, Rosie Hastings, and Yuk Hui.

➔Elegance: Notes on Communism

"Needing to spend time by myself, without surveillance, I sat naked in front of the window and stared at the sun. I wasn’t allowed to leave the room, but that room was all I ever needed. The light coming in was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. The orange hues brought peace and pierced my body with a reminder of independence: the sun is and will forever be free. If I was ever given the choice to recreate any moment of my life, it’d be the intoxification of falling in love, or a sunrise in Pyongyang."
