“SCHLINGENSIEF – A Voice that Shook the Silence” by Bettina Böhler premieres in the Panorama of the Berlinale 2020. The documentary film attempts to document the exceptional artist Christoph Schlingensief, who died in 2010, in all its diversity.
Christoph Schlingensief died 2010 at the age of only 49 years. The action artist’s creative diversity still successfully eludes simple classification. Schliengensief’s former associate Jörg van der Horst poses the question about his contemporary relevance.
Vom 4. bis zum 9 Mai findet im Palazzo Pisani im Rahmen der Biennale die Austellung UNRECOUNTED: Historical Amnesia in Germany and Namibia statt. Unter anderem wird dort Christoph Schlingensiefs Film “The African Twin Towers” (2005 – 09) erneut vorgestellt und in einem besonderen Kontext zugänglich gemacht.

The German Gadfly Christoph Schlingensief at MoMA PS1. By ZACHARY WOOLFE. The New York Times, July 25, 2014
Too often, activist art is charged with an urgency its very ephemerality bestows upon it, lingering only so long as its context permits, and doomed to an afterlife as dated social commentary. Not so for the works of Christoph Schlingensief (1960 – 2010), currently on view at MoMA P.S.1.
Progress continues on a project begun by the late German stage and film director Christoph Schlingensief. A sound studio is being set up in the “opera village” he founded.
