The publication INDUSTRIAL on Tour documents a film program organized by Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV) dealing with the topic of ‘Industrial’ which toured through five cities in Poland from 27 Sept - 9 Oct 2011 (Gdańsk, Tarnów, Kraków, Bytom and Łódź). The program consisted of videos and films by Harun Farocki (DE), Jacek Niegoda (PL), Nina Fischer & Maroan el Sani (DE) and Ulrike Franke & Michael Loeken (DE). Additionally, there were concerts, DJ acts and performances with contemporary electronic ‘Industrial’ music (a.o. featuring Jim ‘baender bender’ Campbell, US/DE). During the two-week trip, the curators did research on the topic of de-/industrialization in Poland. The film program, as well as the researched new material will be shown in the context of HMKV’s large-scale international New Industries Festival which is scheduled to happen in 2013 in Dortmund, Germany.
Curated by Inke Arns (Dortmund), Thibaut de Ruyter (Berlin).
Organised by Daniel Muzyczuk (Toruń).
The project took place in the framework of Kultursaison NRW in Polen 2011/2012 (NRW w Polsce). It was funded by the Ministry for Family, Children, Youth, Culture and Sport of the State of North-Rhine Westphalia.
