Welcome to a special screening of "Strange Victory"

Please join us for a special screening of the film Strange Victory (1948), by Leo Hurwitz, introduced by New York-based curator and critic Ed Halter.

This event starts at 7pm. Admission: NOK 50,-

This rarely seen, stylistically bold documentary equals the visual, poetic brilliance of Battleship Potemkin and I am Cuba while delivering an extraordinary cry from the heart to make a better place for our children. Skillfully combining documentary footage of World War II battles, postwar refugees, and the Nuremberg trials with powerful dramatic re-enactments, Hurwitz wove an extraordinary cinematic portrait of postwar American Fascism. How could it be, the film asked, that servicemen returned home from defeating a racist and genocidal enemy found the United States plagued by racism, Jim Crow, anti-Semitism, anti-Catholicism, and xenophobia? Strange Victory — a cry for equality and justice — was promptly branded ‘pro-communist’ and a financial flop. Hurwitz was blacklisted from film and television for more than a decade and Virgil Richardson (a former Tuskegee Airman), who portrayed a black vet in the film, chose to emigrate to Mexico to escape to US racism. - Milestone Films

Opening soon! Hanne Lippard: Ulyd and Ali Akbar Sadeghi

We are currently hard at work installing two new exhibitions! Join us for the opening on Thursday, August 30 at 6pm.

Ulyd showcases a selection of video works, immersive sound installations, texts, and tablets by Hanne Lippard. For the exhibition, the artist has created a series of works which explore the social forces governing female verbal expression, the culture of female (over)politeness, and the historical control of the female voice.

Concurrently, Kunsthall Stavanger will present a selection of animated films for by Iranian artist Ali Akbar Sadeghi. His work is rooted in the confluence of surrealism and the rich history of Persian miniature painting. Created between 1971-1975, Sadeghi’s animated videos subvert the classical themes of this traditional painting. The symmetrical composition of these works pay homage to the Persian painting style while also speaking to the legacy of the psychedelic movement of the 1960s and the long legacy of surrealism.

The opening will also include a performance by Luci Lippard. Read more about the performance here.

We look forward to seeing you at the opening reception!
