The Rise in Moskow and San Francisco

The video installation The Rise, by the artist duo Nina Fischer and Maroan el Sani, will be presented during the Moskow International Film Festival (MIFF) and in the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI). The Rise is made during a residency period at the Amsterdam Zuidas and premiered in 2007 in SMBA.

The Moskow International Film Festival, which lasts from 19 June till 28 June, will exhibit The Rise in the context of Media Forum. This platform is a part of the programme of the annual festival that focuses on recent cinematic experiments, supported by lectures and master classes. The exhibition in SFAI, 'Summertime: or, Close-ups on Places We've (Never) Been', is curated by Hou Hanru. It examines post-modern issues such as nomadic identity, hybridity and globalised mobility.

The Zuidas residency by Fischer/El Sani was a collaboration with SMBA, the Professorship of Art and Public Space and is part of the 'Zuidas Free Spaces AIR Project' of the Virtual Museum Zuidas. Click here for more info on The Rise.
