FRACTO 2021’s theme “Appropriation” alludes to found footage and other practices of (re)contextualisation in experimental filmmaking. textîles approaches akin forms of creative (re)appropriation – weaving timelines, crossing archives, engaging with speculative fiction and worlding – while also taking critical and radical stances on predatory appropriation, extractivism, dispossession and restitution. This edition of FRACTO – Experimental Film Encounter features a parallel special program presented by Occulto in the ACUD Gallery space: textîles – threading speculative archipelagoes.
For the closing of this textîles episode, you are invited to a physical public collage reading, where theory, fiction, practices and poetry interweave in different languages. We are not experts on textiles, but share the desire to activate the archipelago for collective, nonlinear storytelling. A collage reading guided by Sina Ribak. textîles are: Filippo Bertoni, Alice Cannavà, Chiara Garbellotto, Sybille Neumeyer.
