From Berlin straight out to the Ruhr, home to Germany’s concentrated multi-millions and “contemporary art ruhr,” a concentrated display of all that is here and now (and beyond) in the world of media art. C.A.R. spreads its considerable wings regularly, reaching a global tally of urban art-zones, but invites to its home turf in this bi-annual gathering of innovative thinkers. Directors Lounge has become a regular-as-clockwork contributor to the more daring summer fair, exporting its international imports and making the trip in person to see visitors through its specially curated mélange of onscreen marvels. The flicks selected join of a temporary world of razor-sharp installations, performance, photography and more, fodder for the wide-awake mind. With contributions from DL partner Cross Art (Zurich-Berlin) and more, a feast of film awaits at World Heritage Site Zollverein in Essen. Directors Lounge cordially invites you to electrify your senses.

The new 2014 video TOUCHLESS wins jury first prize at “A.M.A. Art & Music Around” Festival 2014 in Chiari (Brescia). The jury was directed by Actors Studio honorary member Danny Lemmo from New York.

In the video I thought of telling the sense of touch, but with his absence or with its contemporary surrogate: the scarcity of physical contact due to hypertrophic growth of virtual liaisons in social networks, the culture of the avatar, the chaos of magmatic and stratified information and communication between individuals. Thus the scarcity of physical contact that leads to the recognition of the “other” results in a technology that is detached from the body and turns it into cold and solipsistic avatar. In a world where we are almost afraid of physical contact we use the screens of our smartphones and tablets to access the relationship. Is the touch screen the membrane that filters a world that frightens us?
