Phantom Horizons, an on-going screening series, is curated by Robert Seidel for Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien. The Berlin-based exhibition space and international art residency hosts the film series since the year 2015. Focused on experimental works, Seidel presents digital as well as analogue films that question the paradigm of a linear perspective, seeking a new kind of “status perspective” [Bedeutungsperspektive]. The latter was a development of ancient and medieval painting, in which the size of figures is determined by their hierarchical significance. Extending this approach using the methodology of deconstruction and the possibilities of contemporary film creation, the presented works open up multifaceted, unseen horizons, a unique mode of abstract animation.
