The Surprise (Die Überraschung)
Lancelot von Naso, DEU, 2004, 35mm, 10
A film about the unexpected. Often there is a very subtle difference, or a very small gap, between comedy and tragedy. Olaf wants to win back his ex-girlfriend and sneaks into her flat to prepare a surprise for her. But will he succeed in making her happy? And who will be surprised in the end?

From a purely technical point of view, the screen is animated by a controlled beam of electrons in the cathode ray tube. To make Energie!, a photographic film was exposed to a discharge of about 30,000 volts and then re-edited to create new visual systems of electron organisation.

KLEISTER organises photo exhibitions in public space. Invited photographers meet in the designated place and paste their chosen photos directly onto the wall. The exhibition remains out in the open, available to everyone, and is transformed by time and the interventions of passers-by, until the sun and rain completely erase the images.
KLEISTER brings photography to the street and supports young artists and new creative networks. It is a photographic project born in Berlin from the collaboration between Hannah Goldstein and Katja Haustein.

Dittatura e democrazia all’epoca dell’estremo
The 2014 marks the commemoration of three significant historical events: 100 years ago the First World War broke out, 75 years ago the Second World War and 25 years ago the Berlin Wall fell.
The Federal Foundation for the Analysis of the Dictatorship of the Unified Socialist Party, in cooperation with the Institute for Contemporary History in Munich and the radio programme ‘Deutschlandradio Kultur’, conceived the exhibition ‘Dictatorship and Democracy in the Age of the Extreme. Illustration on the history of Europe in the 20th century’ (‘Diktatur und Demokratie im Zeitalter der Extreme. Streiflichter auf die Geschichte Europas im 20. Jahrhundert’). With 190 photographs from countless European archives, the exhibition illustrates the dramatic history of the 20th century in Europe, lived between freedom and tyranny, between democracy and dictatorship.

After the success of FOCUS BALCANI, which took place in autumn 2013 also thanks to the contribution of Regione Lombardia, the new season opens with a focus on German artists.
Among the infinite number of possible proposals coming from a country as attentive to theatre and culture as Germany, ZONA K has chosen a small but significant selection of projects that are particularly innovative and effective in terms of attention to the present and analysis of the reality that surrounds us.
The main theme of the entire focus, as of the PLAY-K(ei) season, is the relationship between art and reality, in particular urban reality, and the ability of art to look at, describe and act on reality.
22 October – 5 November 2014

Focus Germany is part of Milano Cuore d’Europa, the multidisciplinary cultural programming dedicated to the European identity of our city also through the figures and movements that, with their history and artistic production, have contributed to building its European citizenship and cultural dimension.
