For this screening programme in conjunction with Dora Budor's exhibition Again at Nottingham Contemporary, Budor presents a selection of structuralist and neo-structuralist films and videos by Peter Gidal, Jiajia Zhang, Jean-Marie Straub, Asta Lynge, Nikhil Vettukattil, and Noah Barker & Paul Levack.

They show us things we can sometimes recognise, but are likely not about any of those recognisable things. They are not about description, but about process. And they are about something being produced, and not reproduced. Instead, these films examine the undercuts of consumable images and probe deep into their libidinal slickness.

Presented on 16mm film, HD video, and dual-projector passive 3D video.

Introductory remarks by Dora Budor.

The event is in collaboration with Giorno Poetry Systems.
