D'EST

In the spring of 2018, District Berlin has launched 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 December 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 five separate release dates in 2018 the platform will introduce six screening chapters in collaboration with each of the respective partner institutions in Germany (Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf and Filmwerkstatt Düsseldorf), Russia (Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA)), Poland (Galeria Miejska Arsenał, Poznań) and at DISTRICT Berlin. In collaboration with fifteen international curators, fourty artists, and other cultural experts, D’EST maps out artistic forms of historiography, especially from the perspective of female and collective production.
