Geistesverwandte aus den 90ern gefunden: Rosalind Brodsky, Zeitreisende

Rosalind Brodsky in her Electronic Time Travelling Costume to rescue her Grandparents from the Holocaust ends up mistakenly on the set of Schindler’s List, Krakow, Poland, 1994.

From an interview with Suzanne Treister:

„I invented Rosalind Brodsky as an alter ego in 1995 and firstly I made her a set of time travelling costumes. The original biography of Brodsky went like this: ‘Rosalind Brodsky, with whom I share Anglo/Eastern European/Jewish roots, was born in London in 1970 and survived until 2058. Her first ‘delusional’ experience of time travel supposedly occurred while she was in the middle of a session with the pyschoanalyst Julia Kristeva in Paris, at the moment she noticed the similarity of Kristeva’s face to the photographic portrait of her Polish-Jewish grandmother who had been murdered in the Holocaust. By 1995 Brodsky is a delusional time traveller who believes herself to be working in London at the Institute of Militronics and Advanced Time Interventionality (IMATI) in the 21st century. IMATI is a controversial government funded organisation which develops equipment and carries out time travel research projects whose results are for use primarily by the military and other government research organisations. Established in 2004 its mission is to carry out interventional historical, anthropological and scientific research through means of time travel.“

Besonders ergiebig ist die Ankündigung des EMAF Programmflyers nicht – aber sie haben eine hübsche Art, die 8 in 1988 auf den Kopf zu stellen. Der EMAF-Newsletter, in dem die Konferenz angekündigt wird, verrät auch nicht mehr: „Zum 30. Festival stellt das EMAF außerdem zwei ausgewählte, historische Projekte aus dem Programm des Festivals von 1988 vor, die wegweisend für die weitere Entwicklung der Medien waren. Eines davon ist „Van Gogh TV/ Ponton“.“

Und das Andere? – – – Ist #Videolabyrinth!
