On August 26:th we return to Moderna in Malmö for yet another screening of artvideos, accompanied by more talks about pedagogies. The videos to be shown are marxism today (prologue), and use! value! exchange!, both made by artist Phil Collins. The films deal with the experiences of teachers in Marxism-Leninism in the GDR, and looks at the relevance of these classes for our contemporary societies. The first film marxism today (prologue) consists of interviews with three former teachers, mixed with footage of stadium gymnastics and footage from a GDR TV programme made by and for teachers. The soundtrack was provided by Laetitia Sadier and Nick Powell. The second film, use! value! exchange!, features former Marxism-Leninism teacher Andrea Ferber lecturing present-day students in Marx’s Das Kapital, and the audience of the film also become sit-in students of the class for the twenty minutes that the film lasts. You can learn more about the films
