JSF BERLIN: Screening and artist talk | REMOTE by Mika Rottenberg and Mahyad Tousi

JSF BERLIN: Screening and artist talk | REMOTE by Mika Rottenberg and Mahyad Tousi

The Julia Stoschek Foundation is pleased to present the Berlin-premiere of REMOTE (2022), a film by Mika Rottenberg and Mahyad Tousi. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Lisa Long, Artistic Director, and Mika Rottenberg, one of the first artists whose work entered the Julia Stoschek Collection early on.

 

Set in a near future, REMOTE follows Unoaku, an expat architect living in a solar-punk apartment in Kuala Lumpur, and four other women living on their own in Iran, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and South Africa. While watching a popular South Korean dog grooming show, the five women discover they are connected through mysterious portals hidden in their homes. Embarking on a quest for answers, they use the portals to bridge the distance between them, uncovering a phenomenon with universe-altering consequences. The story grew out of a weekly conversation between friends and collaborators Mika Rottenberg and Mahyad Tousi during the onset of the covid pandemic about how people around the world were physically isolated and yet still able to connect through technology.
