Homo Sapiens Project (93) at Drift! Psychogeography Festival Berlin Kyiv 2023
My Homo Sapiens Project (93) (2012) will screen at “Drift! Psychogeography Festival Berlin Kyiv 2023” as part of a film program curated by Claudia Basraw at Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin, on May 6th 2023. My film is in great company among colleagues such as Kerstin Cmelka and Mario Mentrup, among others.
The festival particularly has a very intriguing theme entitled “Psychogeography”. It is an invention of the 20th-century Parisian avant-garde community; psychogeography, “the study of the specific effects of the geographical environment on the emotions and behaviour of individuals,” has never been as compelling as it is now. Drift Festival revisits psychogeography in the context of contemporary urban thought. The 2023 edition, which takes place at Kunstquartier Bethanien, focuses on the psychogeographic interrelations of Kyiv and Berlin. Urban walks, lectures, discussions, screenings, and musical performances.
