1 – 28 April

We are pleased to present an online screening of Mainenancer (2018) a film by Sidsel Meineche Hansen and Therese Henningsen.

Maintenancer explores sex work and the maintenance of sex dolls in the German brothel Bordoll. Based on interviews with dominatrix, founder and madame, Evelyn Schwarz, and her assistant it documents the initial transitions into post-human prostitution, where sex work shifts from the physical body of the sex worker onto the sex doll or robot, with the doll as an interlocutor, whose dead weight demands regular lifting, disinfection and repair.

Thank you to Evelyn Schwarz, dominatrix, founder and madame at Bordoll and her assistant (anonymous).

Specialised Technique, Onyeka Igwe, 2018


William Sellers and the Colonial Film Unit developed a framework for colonial cinema, this included slow edits, no camera tricks and minimal camera movement. Hundreds of films were created in accordance to this rule set. In an effort to recuperate black dance from this colonial project, Specialised Technique, attempts to transform this material from studied spectacle to livingness.
