Celebrating its fifth edition in Hong Kong, Art Basel presents an ambitious program of 59 film and video works. Beijing- and Zurich-based multimedia artist and film producer Li Zhenhua, who has been curating the sector since its inception, has brought together a premier selection of film and video works inspired by the current socio-political climate.
‘Sensational, Humorous Little Tales.’ – Film sector curator Li Zhenhua
This year’s film program focuses on art’s entanglements with the present time. The works take up a variety of positions: as a mirror reflecting a nostalgic or painful past, a barometer measuring current social tensions, an oracle divining the future in mysterious ways. Or simply as sensational and humorous stories reflecting unique artistic points of view.
Stay tuned for the trailer that offers you sneak peek of this year’s exciting program.
