A Pact with One’s Own

“I’m building an autonomous, political community around the Sámi Architecture Library, which strengthens Sámi culture and reclaims our right to define our own spaces or spatial production. But I really hope that it’s also understood as an offering to the rest of the world. I want to share the positive, strong cultural knowledge that I feel so confident of in Sámi culture. There is a tendency to protect Sámi culture from appropriation, and of course I understand why. There is a long history of our ideas and objects being taken and stolen. I understand and share the skepticism, but at the same time, I really think it’s important to maintain a generosity. There’s no way around it; no culture would exist if people stopped sharing what they own.”

–Joar Nango and Axel Wieder, "A Pact with One’s Own", Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and e-flux Architecture, "Survivance".

Touchlessness

“How, when each of us is forbidden to touch, can a renewed sense of our biopolitical entanglement emerge? It may come through a recognition that societal care is not only a personal, face-to-face, and skin-to-skin experience, but something that also happens at a distance, through impersonal systems upon which each of us relies. These too are social relations. Technological mediation between us is a principle, not a secondary complication. The solidarities that bind us cannot be reduced to direct experience; they are also found in how we build systems for those we never meet. In these ways as well, sensing and sensibility align.”

–Benjamin H. Bratton, "Touchlessness", e-flux architecture, "Positions".

The COVID-19 pandemic has included mass social movements toward a mutually-accountable separation from one another. Its bioethics sees each of us as a potentially vulnerable or dangerous vector. This is not wrong, but the wrong lessons might be drawn from this. The epidemiological model of society s...

Editorial—The Wildness in our Bones

“The war for our souls has been going on for aeons. To be born at this moment now, to exist in this world, now, is to be called to actions we barely comprehend yet. The Elders of disparate cultures all over the globe have determined, in patient and soothing tones, what we must do. It is not mysterious, but it can be difficult to wrap our heads around. The mandate is clear: we need to remember what we are—outside an identity economy that issues suspect instructions on how to be a “good” human, and that the values we live will be the old ones. This is how we make the world better, eventually. We listen to the voices of our human and more-than-human teachers, our ancestral, animal, and plant kin. We learn the old skills of living in a sentient world. This is Big Work.”

–Amba J. Sepie, Editorial—"The Wildness in our Bones", Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and e-flux Architecture, "Survivance".

This feels like an in-between moment—something tricky to be present to, as if we are caught between a contested and violent past and a not-yet that is so damn close we can taste the sweat of it.

e-flux Video & Film: staff picks Anocha Suwichakornpong, Graceland (2006) and Nightfall (2016)

e-flux Video & Film is very pleased to present this month’s staff pick, featuring two shorts by Anocha Suwichakornpong: Graceland (2006) and Nightfall (2016), streaming from Thursday, July 1 through Saturday, July 31, 2021.

#efluxVideoFilm #AnochaSuwichakornpong

Anocha Suwichakornpong’s moving-image works are innovative, challenging, and empowering. They disrupt the dominant point of view, break conventional ways of storytelling, and reflect on the production of film itself in an attempt to open up a new screen space where affective engagement and political reflection come together. e-flux Video & Film team is happy to present two early short films by one of Thailand’s leading filmmakers whose recent feature films have been praised in film festivals all across the world.

Anocha Suwichakornpong, Graceland, 2006
17 minutes

One night in Bangkok, Jon meets a mysterious woman. Together, they embark on a journey to the foreign land — the human heart.

Anocha Suwichakornpong and Tulapop Saenjaroen, Nightfall, 2016
15 minutes

A day in the life of a nameless woman as she wanders around Singapore. Part documentary, part video essay, Nightfall is a fictionalized account of the time Anocha Suwichakornpong spent during a residency researching Thai politics in a foreign land.

Anocha Suwichakornpong is a filmmaker and producer. Her work is informed by the socio-political history of Thailand. By the Time It Gets Dark, Anocha’s second feature, centers around a student massacre that took place in 1976 by Thai state forces and far-right paramilitaries at Thammasat University in Bangkok. She graduated from the MFA film program at Columbia University. Her thesis film, Graceland, became the first Thai short film to be officially selected by Cannes Film Festival. Mundane History, her first feature, won numerous awards including the Tiger Award at Rotterdam. By the Time It Gets Dark premiered in Locarno and has screened in festivals such as Toronto, BFI London, Viennale, and Rotterdam. The film won three Thailand National Film Awards including Best Picture and Best Director. By the Time It Gets Dark was chosen as Thailand’s Oscar entry for Best Foreign Language Film.

Anocha founded Electric Eel Films, a production house based in Bangkok. She has produced many short films and features, including Wichanon Somumjarn’s In April the Following Year, There Was a Fire, Lee Chatametikool’s Concrete Clouds, and Josh Kim’s How to Win at Checkers (Every Time). In 2014, she was an artist-in-residence at Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) in Singapore. In 2016, Anocha served on the jury for the Tiger Awards at International Film Festival Rotterdam.

In 2017, Anocha, together with Visra Vichit-Vadakan and Aditya Assarat founded Purin Pictures, an initiative to support Southeast Asian cinema. In 2019, she was named a Prince Claus Laureate. From 2018 to 2020, Anocha was a visiting lecturer at the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies, Harvard University. In 2020, Anocha received the Silpathorn Award from the Ministry of Culture, Thailand. Currently, Anocha is a fellow at DAAD artists-in-residence programme in Berlin.

About the series
e-flux Video & Film: staff picks is a monthly streaming series of staff picks and recommended videos designed to disrupt the monotony of an algorithm. Before the end times of big data, we used to discover suggested content along dusty shelves in video rental stores, where Post-it notes scribbled by shift workers implored us to experience the same movies that made them guffaw, scream, or weep. Sometimes the content bored us, sometimes it overwhelmed us, and sometimes, as if by magic, it was just right. e-flux invites you to relive this rental store mode of perusal, with personalized picks curated through judgment that does not take into consideration your viewing history.
