Oli Sorenson: No More Heroes
Projection and Artist Talk
Art Mûr Berlin is happy to present a special screening of No More Heroes by Canadian artist Oli Sorenson along with Q&A with the artist on August 17 & August 18, 2018. With No More Heroes, Oli Sorenson makes a comment on Hollywood’s obsession with heroic figures (generally white males) by re-editing mainstream movies to cut out every frame in which the main character was seen of heard. On viewing the remaining footage that Sorenson put back together, the supporting characters are now perceived as main protagonists and a new story emerges from the patched up dialogues. What were once canonical story-lined feature shows now become a series of experimental short-films.
