The One Minutes Series / Synthetic Selves / Curated by Goys & Birls / December 2017 / HD video, 14.23 min
The One Minutes Series of December is called Synthetic Selves. The Series is curated by Goys & Birls and consists of 14 One Minutes by various visual artists redefining how the self can be understood in the digital era. Do we have complete agency in constructing ourselves? And what sort of images of ourselves are we actually broadcasting?
Goys & Birls is an Amsterdam based collective of designers, artists and researchers founded in 2016 by Monika Gruzite, Juliette Lizotte and Florian Mecklenburg. They dream in full HD, manifest beyond DIN Formats and touch the world through a layer of criticality, using their visual powers to question and form reality.
Every month, The One Minutes Foundation puts out a new series of 60-second films that investigate how we perceive and engage with moving image. Museums and cultural organisations around the world subscribe to the series.
Participating artists: Goys & Birls, Fenna Schilling, Qianfu Ye, lhtttt, Agustina Woodgate, Oliver Barstow, Daan Couzijn, Ines Alpha, Fabian Reichle, Theresa Büchner, Feline Bæk Hjermind, Juliana Maurer, Heleen Mineur, Lou Buche and Anthony Smyrski.
