Forum Expanded

Traversing the Phantasm

## ## ## ## ## ## ##
The theme of this year’s Forum Expanded is “Traversing the Phantasm”. The programme sees experimental and artists’ film as a form of traversing real and imaginary territories that are manifested in (geo-)political realities and the fantastical constructs symptomatic of capitalist consumerist societies alike. The question also arises here as to what changes this type of traversing can and must trigger within us: what traces can be left behind by an art or film event? In reference to theoretician Jacques Lacan, the concept of the phantasm is reflected in numerous different ways, including in the sense of working through archives, social and political themes or collective fantasies.
The group exhibition “Traversing the Phantasm” includes 13 installations:
