ABOUT

Screen City Biennial (SCB) is dedicated to the expanded moving image in public space, featuring artworks that explore the relationship between the moving image, sound, technology, and urban architecture.

Having been held in Stavanger (Norway) the first two times, in 2022 SCB transcends the traditional spacetime biennale structure by proposing a multi-location model across two cities, Berlin and Oslo, spanning an extended exhibition period during 2022/2023. The first chapter of Other Minds is centered at the Archenhold Observatory in Berlin, which is home to the longest movable refracting telescope on Earth. This optical tool was first activated in 1896 and still functions to this day. Other locations include the Schering Stiftung, Treptower park, and a network of outdoor sites around Pariser Platz which embrace the urban landscape of the city.

CURATED BY

Daniela Arriado

Daniela Arriado is a Chilean-Norwegian Curator and Producer. She holds an MA in Curatorial Studies from the Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design, University of Bergen. Arriado is the founder of the Art Republic platform, located in Oslo and Berlin, and the producer behind Screen City Biennial, Kunst-TV, Son-AR and several public art commissions. Since 2013, she has been the artistic director of Screen City Biennial, leading four editions, consisting of an extended list of new commissions, public lectures and talk programs, screenings and online works.


Her curatorial research finds motivation in exploring present-day social, political, and ecological issues, and her projects often explore the relation between image, sound, and architecture—seeking to expand the borders of the cinematic experience. Passionate about nurturing new talents, as well as encouraging and developing the practice of established artists, she has initiated several cross-cultural and interdisciplinary partnerships and projects in the Nordic countries, Latin America, and Europe. Additionally, Arriado works as an advisor to artist studios, organizations, fairs and collections with a focus on contemporary moving images.

Arriado is a board member of IKT - International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art, and a member of The Norwegian Association of Curators.

Vanina Saracino

Vanina Saracino is an independent curator, writer, and lecturer. Her work focuses on theories and art practices that explicitly question anthropocentric and binary worldviews from an ecological perspective, with an emphasis on lens-based and time-based art practices. She is currently teaching at the Institute of Time-based Media at Universität der Künste (UdK, Berlin), with Prof. Nina Fischer, where she also moderated and contributed to the symposium “More-than-human perspectives and regenerative art practices toward climate justice,” in collaboration with the Climate Crisis Thinking Network, University of Oxford (2022).

Saracino has co-curated the group exhibition Tiger in Space at the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (with Lea Vene and Marten Esko at EKKM, Tallinn, 2020) and the Screen City Biennial (with Daniela Arriado) on the topic Ecologies – lost, found and continued (2019), and edited the SCB Journal, Vol. 2. She has collaborated with Kumu Art Museum and EKKM (Tallinn, Estonia), Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi (Venice), TBA21 – Academy, Cinemateca Brasileira (São Paulo, BR), Cinemateca do MAM (Rio de Janeiro, BR), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Salzburger Kunstverein (Austria), The EYE Film Institute (Amsterdam, NL), and Centro Párraga (Murcia, SP) among others.
