Paradise Tossed

The IMAI – Inter Media Art Institute presents Paradise Tossed, a four-part screening series at NRW-Forum Düsseldorf’s Videolounge. Based on the video of the same name by Jill Scott from 1992, the series brings together works that speculate about dystopian but also hopeful future scenarios from a (queer-)feminist perspective. With a special focus on the relationships between technical achievements, working realities, and nature, the selected videos capture how these competing forces shape the landscapes and domestic environments that surround us. Following the rhythm of Scott’s work, which is divided into chapters dedicated to the 1900s, 1930s, 1960s, and 1990s, the screenings outline moments of conflict and resistance, but also of reconciliation and intimacy in the 2020s.
