Immortality and Resurrection for All!
Directed by Anton Vidokle 2017, 34'
Russian with English Subtitles
Presented by: Maxa Zoller
The last film in Vidokle’s trilogy on Cosmism is a meditation on a museum as the site of resurrection — a central idea for many Cosmist thinkers, scientists and avant-garde artists. Filmed at the State Tretiyakov Gallery, Moscow Zoological Museum, The Lenin Library and The Museum of Revolution, the film looks at museological and archival techniques of collection, restoration and conservation as a means of the material restoration of life, following an essay penned by Nikolai Fedorov on this subject in 1880s.
Anton Vidokle (b. Moscow) is an artist based in New York and Berlin. Vidokle’s work has been exhibited internationally, in venues such as the 56th Venice Biennale (2015) and Documenta 13 (2012).
Maxa Zoller works as the curator for film at Art Basel and lectures at the American University in Cairo. Zoller has presented various experimental film screenings in London and beyond.
