The programme "Dreaming with Open Eyes" part of "German
Inspiration" exhibition shows 19 different positions of artists.
Their short films are little poems with a dream-like quality
that is freed from our everyday life. They are arranged like
the stages of an ambivalent dream: oscillating between an
infantile playfulness, the strength of a heterotopic,
repetitive architecture, dreamscapes embedded in a romanticized
nature or nightmarish states showing the collapse of humanity
and science. And each of these very unique moments holds the
promise to be watched again, while a dream is lost in its
pure linearity after we wake up...

A catalog will be published end 2009 by Art Center Nabi.
