INSTALLATION : ALBANIAN TRILOGY: A SERIES OF DEVIOUS STRATEGEMS
Armando Lulaj

In his video triptych, artist Armando Lulaj mixes material from the Albanian National Film Archive and newly shot footage to provide new perspectives on defining moments in the country's isolationist, communist-era history – from the shooting of a whale in the sea (It Wears As It Grows), through the reworking of a slogan imprinted on land (NEVER), to the launch of a captured U.S. military plane into the air (Recapitulation). The installation represented Albania at the 2015 Venice Biennale.

FILM-MAKERS
Gerald O'Grady

Developed and directed by Gerald O’Grady – an America scholar and founder of the legendary Center for Media Study at Buffalo University in the early 1970s – the series, Film-Makers, was broadcast on American public television channels from 1976 to
1977 and geared to the independent and experimental filmwor. It helped to promote marginal artistic practices that were generally misunderstood by the public at large. Gerald O’Grady would talk with his guests, filmmakers and artists such as Stan Vanderbeek,
Peter Kubelka, Paul Sharits, Robert Breer and Jonas Mekas. They would comment on their work, presented in a media space that was the first of its kind. Thirty years after the series first aired, each episode of Film-Makers now constitutes invaluable
archive material for the history of independent and experimental cinema, combining educational intent and the desire to have it shown.
