Shimi Asresay & Hili Noy Graduation short film from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem.
The peaceful daily routine of father and son is interrupted by an encounter of an unfamiliar boy, different from them in color. An allegory to the phenomena of racism as an acquired cultural epidemic, the story discusses the question of the personal conscience of each of us, versus the education we receive from our families and environment. Can we really insist on our personal belief system, when what we must believe in, is dictated to us?
The film presents how easily we acquire fear and hatred of foreigners, as well as how easily we might become the “strangers” and “others” ourselves.

The “320° Licht” installation of URBANSCREEN uses the cathedral-like beauty of the Gasometer Oberhausen as the starting point for a fascinating game with shapes and light.
Within a radius of 320 degrees graphic patterns grow and change on the 100-metre high inside wall of the Gasometer.
The observer experiences the interplay between real and virtual space, in which the Gasometer seems to dissolve into its own, filigree structures and yet finally always reverts to its clear shape.
With approx. 20,000 square meters of area played upon, the installation is among the world’s largest and technically most sophisticated interior projections – interconnecting 21 powerful projectors to one projection screen.
“320° Licht” is part of the exhibition ‘The Appearance of Beauty’ – the variety of beauty in art that is shown inside the Gasometer. The Gasometer Oberhausen opens this exhibition from 11th April until 30th December.
Room For Rent ist eine Installation des aus Toronto, Kanada stammenden Künstlers Mike Ellis, welche ein dreidimensionales Miniatur-Haus verwendet, indem eine Reihe von Schlafzimmern zu sehen sind. Mehrfarbige LEDs in dem Haus erwecken die sich darin befindenden Illustrationen zum Leben und beleuchten Dinge, die unter normalen Umständen nicht zu sehen sind.
