P.Art Documentary: Operating Systems, Reprogramming and Eightos

This documentary, filmed by Ivan Shmelev — a young filmmaker from Moscow — documents our work process in preparation for the residency at Palais de Tokyo in Paris in November 2018.

The narration describes our approach and outlines the matrix of the conceptual framework we use: the hardware / software metaphor as applied to the body, the necessity of re~programming oneself, as well as the daily proactive practice of a certain kind of ethics based on confluence, adaptivity, and tension/release dynamics. This practice starts with the body but then extends into other contexts: the collective creation of an event and music practice.

In Russian with English subtitles. Premiered at Central House of Artist in Moscow in May 2019.
