The first edition of the residence/research/film art project «Explorers Film Club» takes place in 2020/2021 in a former industrial freeport in the city of Basel, Switzerland. The so-called Dreispitz (german: tricorn) extends over fifty hectares + Until a few years ago, large parts of it were inaccessible for eighty years as a duty-free zone and are therefore 'undiscovered'. For the period between February 2020 and June 2021 five artists are invited to reside in the Dreispitz for one month, to develop a new video/film work, and to present it in a screening on site. These happenings are followed by an exhibition, which includes the publication of a log book, appearing with the video app Primo Print in motion streaming film stills as videos to mobile devices + The «Explorers Film Club» is accompanied by ZHdK sustainability research investigating how aesthetic education generates democratic participation and how actors gain access to an urban area through artistic work.
