Is anyone else having problems with Karma International Gallery, Zurich and their "Kino Karma" series, specifically, showing artists' work from DVDs without permission, and specifically AGAINST artist's stated wishes? They do not respond despite numerous messages.

Karma International, Zurich run by
Marina Leuenberger and Karolina Dankow

It's disgusting when a gallery ignores a living artist's instructions and wishes. Another sleazy incident of the art world abusing experimental filmmakers' works?

Also, can anyone confirm, did they contact Anthology and others and receive permission to screen from the Unseen Cinema set in their gallery?

Also wondering if Marilyn Brakhage and Pat O'Neill have given permission for their works to be screened there?
