"Trouble Feature": Die Praxis der Liebe

Feature Film, AT 1985, 90 min, OmeU
Program: Über-Bilder: Projizierte Weiblichkeit(en) Die Praxis der Liebe

For the artist VALIE EXPORT, the fight against authoritarian masculine society in Austria of the 1980s also had to be fought in the cinematic field. In EXPORT’s third feature film Die Praxis der Liebe, said society is confronted by a protagonist who aggressively stands up to it—in public as well as in private. The work is combined with a surprise international film, whose juxtaposition intensifies contradictions and draws unexpected lines of connection. An experimental double program followed by a discussion.
