On the occasion of tranzit <http://www.tranzit.org/en> âs tenth anniversary,
tranzit and ERSTE Foundation <http://www.erstestiftung.org/> announce a series
of performative events with the title Changer dâimage, whichwill take place in
April and in the fall this year, in partnership with mumok kino.

Ten international film and video makers, artists or artist groups are invited to
reflect on the process of film-making in the form of a live event. The live
performances will be presented in the framework of five evenings, each one
followed by a week of screenings in the mumok kino, of films suggested by the
participating artists.

Invited artists and film-makers:
Fikret Atay; Johanna Billing; Igor and Ivan Buharov; Pavlina Fichta Äierna; Vit
Klusak and Filip Remunda; Ruti Sela; Chto delat?; The Bureau of Melodramatic
Research + The Presidential Candidate; Wendelien van Oldenborgh; We Should Have
Never Left (Uganda): Rasha Salti and Sam Shalabi.

The first evening of the series will take place on April 26and will start with
two live performances: Chto delat? (St. Petersburg) will present their concept
for a film, which is seeking new forms of contemporary urban fables, re-reading
La Fontaine in a post-Brechtian age. Video artist Ruti Sela (Tel Aviv) proposes
a live intervention on stage, experimenting with different processes of
moralising movement, participation and uncontrolled engagement.

Chto delat? (What is to be done?) is a group of authors, critics, artists and
philosophers that was founded in St. Petersburg in 2003. Exhibitions
(selection): Das LehrstÃck vom UneinverstÃndnis, Staatliche Kunsthalle
Baden-Baden, (2011); Perestroika: Twenty Years After: 2011â1991, Kunstverein
KÃln, Cologne (2011); Istanbul Biennial (2009).

Ruti Sela lives in Tel Aviv. Exhibitions (selection): Moments. A History of
Performances in 10 Acts, ZKM, Karlsruhe (2012); Manifesta 8, Murcia (2010); Rare
Medium, Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv (2008).

Changer dâimage was conceived by VÃt HavrÃnek, DÃra Hegyi, Georg SchÃllhammer,
and Raluca Voinea for the tenth anniversary of the tranzit initiative.

Changer dâimage (To Alter the Image) takes up the title of a short film by
Jean-Luc Godard. Godard was commissioned to make a film about the subject of the
political change in French politics in 1981 when the left (Francois Mitterrand)
won the presidential elections. His film is a textual reflection performed by
himself in front of a blind frame that later became animated by the chain of
images that âresist to change.â It is a personal confession on the capacity or
un-capacity of changing image to reflect a factual political change.

In the sense of Godardâs reflective approach, tranzit curators invited a group
of artists to develop a public presentation of a scenario for a new video or
film. The presentation can be considered an open reflection in front of a blind
frame, frozen or moving image; it can also be a concrete proposal for a next
film to be realized, but also as an opportunity to think about the potentials of
leaving a film as a draft.
