"A rhizome is characterized by ceaselessly established connections between semiotic chains, organizations of power, and circumstances relative to the arts, sciences, and social struggles."
–Excerpt from A Thousand Plateaus by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari
Capitain Petzel is pleased to present a film program based on the Rhizome 7/7 online exhibition — but this time, in real life (IRL). The Rhizome campaign which was launched throughout the months of April and May made use of the infinite connections between the artists in the gallery program to highlight on a weekly basis 7 works by 7 artists in contribution to a wider, relevant discourse.
Over the next weeks, a selection of films will be shown on loop in the lower exhibition space of the gallery. Some of the selected films touch on important historical and social themes, whilst others present themselves more as insightful portraits, at times humorous and at others raising existential considerations across artistic positions.
