HACK THE PANKE Festival
Tales of Weird Science and Cosmic Covenants
Film Screening | Tad Ermitaño
Art Laboratory Berlin welcomes you to the HACK THE PANKE Festival with various events like workshops, film screenings and walks on art, science and sound in Berlin-Wedding. In context of his solo exhibition Radyo Somatodelia: Experiments in Sonic Animism at Art Laboratory Berlin Philippine artist Tad Ermitaño will present a screening program featuring some of his film and video works.
As a self-described “refugee from the sciences” Ermitaño’s film work sketches an uneasy field in which a facility with technology collides with a kind of postcolonial guilt slamming its head against the limits of empiricism. The films selected for this program complement a practice that searches for correctives to technocratic hubris. Tropes from Science Fiction, Jungian metaphysics, experimental film and Folk Catholicism sketch a sense of a world deformed by forces corroding its underlying structures.
