Volume 14: Middle East
Compiled by ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art

Sat, Jan 13-Sun, Mar 27

YBCA presents a compilation of nine videos that focus on the Middle East, each accompanied by a brief commentary. They comprise the 14th volume of ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art, a magazine in a DVD format. Volume 14: Middle East explores a region so culturally conflicted that the very term “Middle East” is disputed as a holdover from colonialism. With perspectives from both inside and outside the region, this compilation includes documentaries, experimental live action and animation videos. They focus on a range of topics including political, religious, and social dissent, as well as linguistics, food, ritual, media, power, humor, and beauty.

Videos and Commentators include:
• Crowded With Voices by Anya Belkina w/ commentary by Nicole Triche
• Domestic Tension by Wafaa Bilal w/ commentary by Carol Becker
• Uled Tripoli, Sabe Tripoli, Soldiers Lebanon by Teresa Diehl w/ commentary by Manon Slome
• Survival Signs by Mounir Fatmi w/ commentary by Tarek Elhaik
• Headlines: A Hybrid Film Trilogy by Sabine Gruffat w/ commentary by David Dinnell
