Series

Every two months, The One Minutes releases a new series of one-minute films that capture the essence of our current time through moving images. These series act as a record or document of a particular movement, presenting a collective work comprised of diverse autonomous perspectives. This collaborative effort resembles a mixtape, unveiling a development or narrative.

Guest curators initiate open calls for submissions and have access to The One Minutes Collection. Museums and cultural organizations worldwide subscribe to these series

For 2023 and 2024, we are developing a globally-oriented program called Voices to be heard. Centered around solidarity, collectivity, and equitable representation, our aim is to amplify diverse voices. The series premiere within the local community before embarking on a global tour. After the online premiere, the content will be accessible on our website.

Mirroring

Watch trailer

In May, we present ‘Mirroring’ curated by Seda Yıldırım, Werkplaats Typografie. The series features 14 one-minute videos exploring the fascinating phenomenon of mirroring, submitted from Argentina, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Indonesia, the Netherlands, Russia, and the United Kingdom.

We mirror. “Not to convey the pure essence of the thing. It sinks the thing into the life of the storyteller in order to bring it out of them again. Thus traces of the storyteller cling to the story the way the fingerprints of the potter cling to the clay vessel.” said Walter Benjamin. Just like that, in this curation, each video becomes a surface, reflecting traces of the storyteller. Acts like a mirror that’s aware of the silence of things you speak so as to see and to be seen.

Mirroring here is not merely a reflection; it is an active engagement, a mutual recognition where experiences and stories intertwine. This interaction bridges the gaps between us. The mirror, in this context, is far from passive; it speaks, it distorts, it transforms. And gazing at this mirror is not for the purpose of seeing what is visible; that is to say, if what I see is limited by the width of this mirror, I might. This beckons us to recognize our limits and the profound necessity of understanding in the human experience, reminding us that in seeing each other, we too are seen.

Life/Body Hacks

Watch trailer

In March, we present this curated series featuring 18 one-minute videos on DIY approaches to living submitted by artists from diverse locations, including Argentina, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, and Romania.

»As we rely on each other, technology, and healthcare to fulfill our needs, this series directs attention to the areas that fall in-between—those needs that prove challenging to articulate or, perhaps, are literally hard to reach. The exchange of personal experiences and perspectives occurs through do-it-yourself methods and ways of living that transcend the standardized norms of the biomedical-industrial complex. Disability, debility, and illness are conveyed through stories of lived experiences, used to produce and share knowledge.« Pernilla Manjula Philip

Ten Buffalos

Watch trailer

In 2024, we present ‘Ten Buffalos’, curated by Nhà Sàn Collective.
Thập mục ngưu đồ, or ten pictures of buffalo herding, is a series of short poems and accompanying drawings used in the Zen tradition to describe the stages of a practitioner’s progress toward enlightenment, and their return to society to enact wisdom and compassion. Nhà Sàn Collective in Hanoi invited global artists to submit one-minute films responding to one of the ten stages.

Nhà Sàn’s curated selection features ten One Minutes submitted by artists from Belgium, Iceland, Laos, Netherlands and Vietnam. A collection of videos that deviate from the original formula, such as lectures or teachings of self-enlightenment and Buddhism, bringing about a sense of strangeness.

Domestic Odyssey

Watch trailer

This late summer, The One Minutes presents ‘Domestic Odyssey’, curated by Japanese collective 6okken. This selection of 18 one-minute films offers a fascinating glimpse into daily life a hundred years from now, provided we continue to embrace our own unique perspectives and passions. The selected films were submitted from Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Georgia, Japan, Latvia, Netherlands, Poland, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United Kingdom and United States.

»What’s really going on, what we are experiencing, the rest, where is it? How should we take account of, question, describe what happens every day and recurs every day: the banal, the quotidian, the obvious, the common, the ordinary, the infra-ordinary, the background noise, the habitual?« Georges Perec
Our daily lives are composed of subtle routines that have become imperceptible. Imagine daily live a century from now! How would life unfold in a realm where we’ve rekindled our faith in human potential?

The One Minutes Jr. Ukraine

Watch trailer

A new narrative for Ukraine: told by its children
What is the influence of war on daily life in Ukraine? What is it like to grow up in a conflict zone? To live in constant fear? What dreams do young people hold for the future?
In 2016 and 2017, The One Minutes Jr. went to Ukraine multiple times for workshops with young people in Avdiivka, Bakhmut, Dobropillia, Kharkiv, Liman, Mariupol, Militopol, Severodonestk, Sloviansk and Volnovakha to find answers to these questions.
In 2022, with the war in the Ukraine, these films are highly topical and at the request of International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, a compilation was made of 46 One Minutes.

A shelter is not a home

Watch trailer

What is it like to grow up in the world’s largest refugee camp? To live in a shelter, not in a home?

The One Minutes Jr. team traveled to Rohingya refugee Camp 17 in Kutupalong with UNICEF Bangladesh, for a workshop with young Rohingya refugees to find answers to these questions. The results are short autobiographical films that provide a poignant glimpse into their lives. These films touch on highly relevant issues, and we are committed to amplifying the voices of young Rohingya refugees. The One Minutes Series of 15 films called ‘A shelter is not a home’ will tour the world.
Nobody can put a fence around your imagination. In your mind, you can travel anywhere.

Everything happened so much: archive as poem in an age of perpetual witnessing

Watch trailer

“There are different ways to tell a story. I wanted to think about the way we bear ongoing witness to our own lives, and how this material tells bigger stories about the material, technological and socio-economic circumstances of the past and present. I wanted to give space to the unreliable narrator and the chaos of memory. To take seriously the political dimension of telling stories through the low fidelity, poor images and unobjective close-ups that we are often left with in contrast to sovereign forms of cinema (newsreel, advertisement, video-essay). Building on these ideas, in reconnaissance and reclamation, here are 24 video-poems, as true and accurate as any other form of storytelling, or perhaps even more so.”

Akwatik

Watch trailer

Akwatik explores the land/sea dialectic omnipresent in maritime anthropology. Colonialism, independence, developmental and conservation policies have all disrupted communities inhabiting maritime space. The concept of the sea as a human space, marked by cultural diversity, has been stubbornly resisted. Perceived instead as a homogeneous space, as ‘widow of the ways’ (veuf de routes) and as ‘irremediably wild’, the sea was viewed as refractory to any form of ‘domestication’. Until recently western models dominated ideas about the sea, but now a reversal is taking place, opening up a middle way – a space for reflection that is scientific, political, social. Akwatik steers from land to sea, from air to water, seeking to occupy space without claiming it. The selected videos were sent in from Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Switzerland.

Forked Tongue

Watch trailer

Forked Tongue’ is curated by Madison Bycroft and includes ten one minute videos that move in two directions, are ambivalent, layered, and in between. Repetitions, translations, and bifurcated histories proliferate, as do restless characters performing multiple gestures, unanchored, and never still. These works evade a single sense. Instead of containing things within specified boundaries or capacities a space opens for multiplicity and ambiguity.

Watch trailer

On our social feeds, we jump from happy dogs to war scenes. Both can refer to someone’s home. What makes your home? How responsible do you feel to secure other people’s homes? Do we still understand the writings and whispers of our environment or are there languages we need to relearn?
This series of one minute films features intimate scenes from communities around the world. Many of them bravely face various challenges to secure their homes from invasions. Some scenes allow us to be enchanted by the mystical movement of nature. Revisit memories of house and home and take a journey into a future of what home could be.
“All the places where the sun shines is our home.” What if we could really feel that every day? Would you live the same way? Would your routine be the same? Would you show the same in your social account timelines and feeds?

2020, the year when humanity spent maybe the most time at home, made us mold differently to our idea of comfort. How does this affect what we see?

New Normalism

Watch trailer

New Normalism is a term that changes almost every time we use it. At the time of the Open Call in April, New Normalism was part of an idealistic narrative of change. Over the months, we’ve learned that Covid-19 will be around for a while. Meanwhile, New Normalism has been claimed by both left and right, without giving proper directions of what it should or could be. In the fourteen selected One Minutes, the confusion of the pandemic is tangible, it is hard to get a grip on something so vast and still unknown. But together, and placed in associative order, they make for a clear voice. Images reveal what words cannot contain.

The power of transparency

The power of transparency is curated by Minhong Yu and consists of 14 One Minute videos made by artists in isolation in China, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Now that the whole world is locked down at home, we all are united in isolation. Despite of being restrained, there is no limitation to our imagination. Close your eyes and let what is opaque become transparent. Transparency is the perfect camouflage. If there is nothing to hide, why do we fear transparency? Can we practice transparency to transfer and filter overwhelming information? How can we become transparent to reflect our emotions in an imbalance of power? ⁠

Dreaming the Dark: hands that see, eyes that touch

Watch trailer

‘Dreaming the Dark: hands that see, eyes that touch’ is a series curated and assembled by Ana Vaz. She invited artists and filmmakers whose work trust cinema’s capacity to transform relationships between the body and the camera to propose works that will engage with both perception and embodiment. Could cinema be an art of embodiment? By what rituals and actions could vision become tactile?

Witches

Watch series

Witches is curated by Juliette Lizotte and consists of 15 works by artists from France, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands and United States of America. They collectively explore the subversive character of the witch: marginal, powerful and disruptive, with an unsettling relation to nature.
And celebrate the powers of witches, their spell casting, witchcraft’s engagement with unconventional and unrecognized knowledges. While the witch is often presented as evil, we should argue – supported by many feminist writings – that she is unruly, unapologetic, living a life of her own, holding responsibilities towards community and nature – if she even makes the difference between the two. Through her craft she shapes a world she had envisioned and cares for. She is a designer, a maker of change and transformation.

Enjoy your file, download your life

Watch trailer

Enjoy your file, download your life is curated by Studio David Claerbout. The title is a switch on “Download your file, Enjoy your life”. Life or file oftentimes in our present perception seems almost undistinguishable. Only a switch of two letters, and one is either on this or the other side of the real or the virtual. The lived or the preserved. The experienced or the watched.
From the vast The One Minutes Collection, Studio David Claerbout made a very subjective choice of thirty-seven videos of different lives, voices, perspectives, imaginations, fun, pain, madness and peace.

Communication with the Non-Human

Watch trailer

Communication with the Non-Human is curated by Melanie Bonajo. The series consists of twenty One Minutes. “What does a plant know? What goes on inside the mind of funny bot? Do PMS dolphins turn into cranky bitches? All around us, complex systems of giving and receiving are performed by rather ancient and marginalized machines like corals, grass, seahorses and even rather primitive creatures, such as dogs and families. Through practical observation, the multifarious communication between humans and non-humans can be viewed as responsive behavior, defined by one designating the future behavior of all. Let’s think over this arrangement for a while. Otherwise we might, in the near future, end up belonging to that misunderstood class, at odds with its environment.”

Real Sur Real

Watch trailer

The One Minutes Series Real Sur Real is curated by Jerszy Seymour. ‘Real Sur Real’ consists of 11 works by artists and filmmakers from Germany, the Netherlands, Taiwan, South Korea and United Kingdom. Together, the videos create a Non Utopian Utopian Vision.

If the surreal could be seen as a seeking of truth to get to the core of meaning by creating fantastic cracks in reality and access to other worlds, then it could be seen as limited and laid impotent by representation, and if the real could be seen as truth based in no representation and therefore potent in the actual then it could be seen as lacking the imagination to conceive of something else outside of the perspective of the real, the Real Sur Real is a paradoxical perspective that tries to go past these two limitations. The call for the Real Sur Real is a call to dare to be in the world, and to simultaneously create the world that we don’t know and could equally be framed as a Non Gesamt Gesamt Kunstwerk or a Non Utopian Utopian Vision.

Martians Send Videos Home

Watch trailer

Martians Send Videos Home is curated by Joseph Popper. Together, the videos explore the concept of estrangement. The series title derives from Craig Raine’s poem ‘A Martian Sends a Postcard Home’, which defamiliarises the everyday by describing objects and rituals through the misunderstanding eyes of a Martian character visiting Earth.
To estrange can be a way of making sense or a vehicle for critique, where reality is to be ‘truly’ seen when made strange or imagined as constructed and therefore changeable. In other words, estrangements can render complex ideas sensible or complexify what is simply taken for granted.
In 15 strange minutes, actual and virtual worlds collide; nature is revered, tamed and impersonated; the human body becomes a host and instrument; simple changes of framing reveal the fantastic strangeness of the once considered mundane.

we do the voodoo – a play on continuity and rhythm from one artist to another.

Watch trailer

‘we do the voodoo – play on continuity and rhythm from one artist to another.’ is initiated by Helen Dowling. The series consists of ten One Minutes.
Taking the title ‘we do the voodoo’ from the idea of possession and rhythmic entrainment Helen Dowling has initiated a video program that relied upon each artist responding to the previous artist’s one-minute video and nominating the next artist to do the same. Modelled roughly on the Exquisite Corpse drawing game invented by the Surrealists, this is an experiment with the rhythm and contingency between artists and the structure of The One Minutes organisation.

But her eyes said that gunshot knew he had a creation, and that was why parrot was wise of bulk

Watch trailer

‘But her eyes said that gunshot knew he had a creation, and that was why parrot was wise of bulk’ is selected by Jens Maier-Rothe and is inspired by the wondrous world of spam poetry, automated emails from the chicks with dicks on how we make that extra mega buck from home, ditzy television shows and videos from the local home depot store, brainy quotes and hairy proverbs in our daily mail – in short, all the stuffy decor that clutters our brains and follows us everywhere because it’s deep and sublime, and we know it. Separating wolds from the bushy filigree was a fragmentary orange of ice. Anyone can win the heart of audiences by putting on just the right shades of rosy rails.

How To

‘How To’ deals with convenient tips. It is a compilation of short films that teach us something within One Minute. What do you do, for instance, if you have to tie your shoes and have only one hand free? Another film shows a variety of ways to separate an egg yolk: not all of them are very practical. One of the films was made by Hans Aarsman himself. He had an uncle Loek, one of those characters found in every family, who told unforgettable stories. Aarsman’s uncle taught him how to wash his hands in a jiffy when they’re covered in black grease: first rub them with olive oil, then with soap and only after that, rinse them under the faucet.

IN.NO.SENSE

Watch trailer

IN.NO.SENSE is curated by Xue Mu and consists of twenty one-minute films by various artists exploring the states in between nothingness and significance.
IN.NO.SENSE is a made-up homonym for the word INNOCENCE, to thwart the confinement of language and its semantic limits. When ‘something does not make sense’, the general interpretation would be there is no logic, it is unclear, or it’s useless. Could there be another interpretation?
Some films represent the artists’ observation on trivial matters with wonderment, some show the processes of contemplation in the micro/macro world, and a few works come along with poetical commentary on the current human conditions - be it subtle, upright or allegorical. With or without intentions altogether the artists conceived an aimless wander in the realm of quiddity, in chaos and order, with an un-preconditioned liveliness.

Watch trailer

‘Promise of Suspense’ is curated by Superposition and consists of fourteen One Minutes featuring the same camera techniques. From the vast The One Minutes Collection, Superposition exclusively selected videos that feature a camera zoom. In each video, the zoom is used for different reasons. In some cases the filmmaker wishes to get closer to the object that is being filmed, in others the zoom is used so as to disguise the presence of the camera handler. In all the selected films, the zoom contributes to a feeling of suspense.

ZOOMSCAPE is curated by Sofia Mourato. The series consists of 17 One Minutes by various artists zooming into spaces. ZOOMSCAPE aims to explore the impact of the moving image when representing space. By camera reproduction the perception of architecture spaces, seen in motion, break apart, and recombine. Attentiveness to space depends upon the context of the experience. Like most things, spaces mean more when they mediate the extraordinary moments of life.
ZOOMSCAPE aims to unveil that different people can “zoom” into spaces using several modes of experience, resulting in a reframing within today’s predominantly visual culture.

Islas Inútiles

Watch trailer

The One Minutes Series Islas Inútiles is curated by Bar None and consist of eight Intimate portrayals of Dutch Caribbean identity by visual artists and filmmakers. What has remained unseen that needs to be seen?

After the Spanish “discovered” the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, they dubbed the islands “Islas Inútiles”, Useless Islands. The Dutch Caribbean, including Saba, St. Eustatius (Statia), St. Maarten (SXM) and their diaspora are clumped together even though they differ culturally from each other. And even though officially, colonialism is over, the culturally mis- and underrepresentation of these members of the Dutch Kingdom has left the term “Islas Inútiles” as a whole still ringing true.

Mirroring

Watch trailer

Fourteen One Minutes
Curated by Seda Yıldırım, Werkplaats Typografie

In May, we present ‘Mirroring’ curated by Seda Yıldırım, Werkplaats Typografie. The series features 14 one-minute videos exploring the fascinating phenomenon of mirroring, submitted from Argentina, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Indonesia, the Netherlands, Russia, and the United Kingdom.

We mirror. “Not to convey the pure essence of the thing. It sinks the thing into the life of the storyteller in order to bring it out of them again. Thus traces of the storyteller cling to the story the way the fingerprints of the potter cling to the clay vessel.” said Walter Benjamin. Just like that, in this curation, each video becomes a surface, reflecting traces of the storyteller. Acts like a mirror that’s aware of the silence of things you speak so as to see and to be seen.

Mirroring here is not merely a reflection; it is an active engagement, a mutual recognition where experiences and stories intertwine. This interaction bridges the gaps between us. The mirror, in this context, is far from passive; it speaks, it distorts, it transforms. And gazing at this mirror is not for the purpose of seeing what is visible; that is to say, if what I see is limited by the width of this mirror, I might. This beckons us to recognize our limits and the profound necessity of understanding in the human experience, reminding us that in seeing each other, we too are seen.

In March, we present this curated series featuring 18 one-minute videos on DIY approaches to living submitted by artists from diverse locations, including Argentina, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, and Romania.

»As we rely on each other, technology, and healthcare to fulfill our needs, this series directs attention to the areas that fall in-between—those needs that prove challenging to articulate or, perhaps, are literally hard to reach. The exchange of personal experiences and perspectives occurs through do-it-yourself methods and ways of living that transcend the standardized norms of the biomedical-industrial complex. Disability, debility, and illness are conveyed through stories of lived experiences, used to produce and share knowledge.« Pernilla Manjula Philip

Twenty-Four One Minutes
Curated by Jesse Darling

“There are different ways to tell a story. I wanted to think about the way we bear ongoing witness to our own lives, and how this material tells bigger stories about the material, technological and socio-economic circumstances of the past and present. I wanted to give space to the unreliable narrator and the chaos of memory. To take seriously the political dimension of telling stories through the low fidelity, poor images and unobjective close-ups that we are often left with in contrast to sovereign forms of cinema (newsreel, advertisement, video-essay). Building on these ideas, in reconnaissance and reclamation, here are 24 video-poems, as true and accurate as any other form of storytelling, or perhaps even more so.”

Akwatik

Watch trailer

Seventeen One Minutes
Curated by Kinemastik

Akwatik explores the land/sea dialectic omnipresent in maritime anthropology. Colonialism, independence, developmental and conservation policies have all disrupted communities inhabiting maritime space. The concept of the sea as a human space, marked by cultural diversity, has been stubbornly resisted. Perceived instead as a homogeneous space, as ‘widow of the ways’ (veuf de routes) and as ‘irremediably wild’, the sea was viewed as refractory to any form of ‘domestication’. Until recently western models dominated ideas about the sea, but now a reversal is taking place, opening up a middle way – a space for reflection that is scientific, political, social. Akwatik steers from land to sea, from air to water, seeking to occupy space without claiming it. The selected videos were sent in from Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Switzerland.

New Normalism is a term that changes almost every time we use it. At the time of the Open Call in April, New Normalism was part of an idealistic narrative of change. Over the months, we’ve learned that Covid-19 will be around for a while. Meanwhile, New Normalism has been claimed by both left and right, without giving proper directions of what it should or could be. In the fourteen selected One Minutes, the confusion of the pandemic is tangible, it is hard to get a grip on something so vast and still unknown. But together, and placed in associative order, they make for a clear voice. Images reveal what words cannot contain.

And celebrate the powers of witches, their spell casting, witchcraft’s engagement with unconventional and unrecognized knowledges. While the witch is often presented as evil, we should argue – supported by many feminist writings – that she is unruly, unapologetic, living a life of her own, holding responsibilities towards community and nature – if she even makes the difference between the two. Through her craft she shapes a world she had envisioned and cares for. She is a designer, a maker of change and transformation.

Do PMS dolphins turn into cranky bitches? All around us, complex systems of giving and receiving are performed by rather ancient and marginalized machines like corals, grass, seahorses and even rather primitive creatures, such as dogs and families. Through practical observation, the multifarious communication between humans and non-humans can be viewed as responsive behavior, defined by one designating the future behavior of all. Let’s think over this arrangement for a while. Otherwise we might, in the near future, end up belonging to that misunderstood class, at odds with its environment.”

If the surreal could be seen as a seeking of truth to get to the core of meaning by creating fantastic cracks in reality and access to other worlds, then it could be seen as limited and laid impotent by representation, and if the real could be seen as truth based in no representation and therefore potent in the actual then it could be seen as lacking the imagination to conceive of something else outside of the perspective of the real, the Real Sur Real is a paradoxical perspective that tries to go past these two limitations. The call for the Real Sur Real is a call to dare to be in the world, and to simultaneously create the world that we don’t know and could equally be framed as a Non Gesamt Gesamt Kunstwerk or a Non Utopian Utopian Vision.

Martians Send Videos Home

Watch trailer

15 strange minutes
Curated by Joseph Popper

Martians Send Videos Home is curated by Joseph Popper. Together, the videos explore the concept of estrangement. The series title derives from Craig Raine’s poem ‘A Martian Sends a Postcard Home’, which defamiliarises the everyday by describing objects and rituals through the misunderstanding eyes of a Martian character visiting Earth.
To estrange can be a way of making sense or a vehicle for critique, where reality is to be ‘truly’ seen when made strange or imagined as constructed and therefore changeable. In other words, estrangements can render complex ideas sensible or complexify what is simply taken for granted.
In 15 strange minutes, actual and virtual worlds collide; nature is revered, tamed and impersonated; the human body becomes a host and instrument; simple changes of framing reveal the fantastic strangeness of the once considered mundane.

Ten One Minutes
Initiated by Helen Dowling

‘we do the voodoo – play on continuity and rhythm from one artist to another.’ is initiated by Helen Dowling. The series consists of ten One Minutes.
Taking the title ‘we do the voodoo’ from the idea of possession and rhythmic entrainment Helen Dowling has initiated a video program that relied upon each artist responding to the previous artist’s one-minute video and nominating the next artist to do the same. Modelled roughly on the Exquisite Corpse drawing game invented by the Surrealists, this is an experiment with the rhythm and contingency between artists and the structure of The One Minutes organisation.

But her eyes said that gunshot knew he had a creation, and that was why parrot was wise of bulk

Watch trailer

Fifteen One Minutes
curated by Jens Maier-Rothe

‘But her eyes said that gunshot knew he had a creation, and that was why parrot was wise of bulk’ is selected by Jens Maier-Rothe and is inspired by the wondrous world of spam poetry, automated emails from the chicks with dicks on how we make that extra mega buck from home, ditzy television shows and videos from the local home depot store, brainy quotes and hairy proverbs in our daily mail – in short, all the stuffy decor that clutters our brains and follows us everywhere because it’s deep and sublime, and we know it. Separating wolds from the bushy filigree was a fragmentary orange of ice. Anyone can win the heart of audiences by putting on just the right shades of rosy rails.

How To

Twenty-three One Minute films
curated by Hans Aarsman

‘How To’ deals with convenient tips. It is a compilation of short films that teach us something within One Minute. What do you do, for instance, if you have to tie your shoes and have only one hand free? Another film shows a variety of ways to separate an egg yolk: not all of them are very practical. One of the films was made by Hans Aarsman himself. He had an uncle Loek, one of those characters found in every family, who told unforgettable stories. Aarsman’s uncle taught him how to wash his hands in a jiffy when they’re covered in black grease: first rub them with olive oil, then with soap and only after that, rinse them under the faucet.

IN.NO.SENSE

Watch trailer

Twenty One Minutes
Curated by Xue Mu

IN.NO.SENSE is curated by Xue Mu and consists of twenty one-minute films by various artists exploring the states in between nothingness and significance.
IN.NO.SENSE is a made-up homonym for the word INNOCENCE, to thwart the confinement of language and its semantic limits. When ‘something does not make sense’, the general interpretation would be there is no logic, it is unclear, or it’s useless. Could there be another interpretation?
Some films represent the artists’ observation on trivial matters with wonderment, some show the processes of contemplation in the micro/macro world, and a few works come along with poetical commentary on the current human conditions - be it subtle, upright or allegorical. With or without intentions altogether the artists conceived an aimless wander in the realm of quiddity, in chaos and order, with an un-preconditioned liveliness.

After the Spanish “discovered” the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, they dubbed the islands “Islas Inútiles”, Useless Islands. The Dutch Caribbean, including Saba, St. Eustatius (Statia), St. Maarten (SXM) and their diaspora are clumped together even though they differ culturally from each other. And even though officially, colonialism is over, the culturally mis- and underrepresentation of these members of the Dutch Kingdom has left the term “Islas Inútiles” as a whole still ringing true.
