Human Frames presents a series of ten film programmes examining the human condition through experimental film and video art. Comprising both contemporary and archive images from across Asia and Europe, this project is inspired by the ancient theory of humoralism as a framework for analysing certain aspects of the human character.

Focusing on ten emotional states – happiness, desire, madness, fanaticism, fear, anger, isolation, melancholia, mono no aware, impermanence – it depicts the timeless and universal panoply of human tempers that lay beyond national, social and cultural affiliations. Working with artists and curators from both Asia and Europe, Human Frames spans disparate practices and processes and charts ideological convergences and divergences alike.

Human Frames is presented by Silke Schmickl and Stéphane Gérard from Lowave in Paris (http://www.lowave.com) and independent guest curators Masayo Kajimura (Germany/Japan), Victric Thng (Singapore), François Michaud (France). This event is co-presented by The Substation Moving Images and Supported by the Asia-Europe Foundation, Singapore.

Human Frames will tour internationally and will be supplemented by the Human Frames exhibition at the KIT – Kunst Im Tunnel Museum, Düsseldorf, Germany (6 June – 24 July 2011).
