We are thrilled to announce the Spring 2014 Season of Conversations at the Edge (CATE).  This season will be opening with a multimedia talk on the “Genealogies of the New Aesthetic” by Christiane Paul on March 27th

Also lined up this season is Sven Augustijnen‘s Spectres (4/3) a film essay that presents a controversial view of Belgium’s colonial past and questions how a country or individual engages with their colonial past.

On April 10th CATE welcomes Everything is Terrible! to the Gene Siskel Film Center.  This anonymous video collective mine thrift stores and bargain bins to unearth the best and worst ever committed to VHS.  The collective will be presenting several short found footage works along with the feature length work Doggie Woggiez!  Poochie Woochiez!

Thom Andersen (4/17) will be presenting Reconversão a film that considers the built, unrealized, and abandoned projects of Pritzker Prize-winning Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura.

Finally Basma Alsharif returns to CATE (4/24) with a collection of recent films that explore bilocation—the act of being in multiple places at once—a state of being she uses to describe Palestinian identity, as well as cinema itself.

We look forward to seeing you at CATE this season.  In the meantime you can check out the line up, read more about the artists and their works and join the Facebook events here.
