D'EST

In the spring of 2018, District Berlin will launch D’EST: A Multi-Curatorial Online Platform for Video Art from the Former ‘East’ and ‘West’, which will be accessible online until the end of 2020. Between June and November 2018, the online platform will publish a total of six screening chapters reflecting post-socialist transformation. Their thematic focal points delineate post-socialism along post-geographic, horizontal, and gender-critical perspectives. On three separate release dates in 2018 the platform will introduce two screening chapters in collaboration with each of the respective partner institutions in Germany (Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf), Russia (Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA)), and Poland (Galeria Miejska Arsenał, Poznań). In collaboration with fifteen international curators, fifty artists, and other cultural experts, D’EST maps out artistic forms of historiography, especially from the perspective of female and collective production.
