CRITICAL IMAGES and WALDEN presents: (Dis)comfort of Images and Injuries of History. Film screening and discussion with Peter Nestler, Charif Kiwan and Nathalie Delbard

How to make history visible in a time dominated by the aesthetics of hypervisibility?

Screening of Tod und Teufel (Death and Devil) by Peter Nestler and a selection of short films by the anonymous, Syrian film collective Abounaddara, followed by a discussion with Peter Nestler and Charif Kiwan (spokesperson for Abounaddara), led by Nathalie Delbard, professor of Visual Arts at the University of Lille, France.

In Tod und Teufel Peter Nestler explores and wrestles with the contradictory biography of Count Eric von Rosen, a Swedish aristocrat with a serious interest in ethnology and anthropology who undertook expeditions to Africa and South America.

The short films by the anonymous Syrian film collective Abounaddara propose a fragmentary approach to address injuries of history.
