Nieuwe Vide Radio: Podcast Episode 2 with Verena Hahn as a guest
Nieuwe Vide from Haarlem, Netherlands, bring you today the Episode 2 of their podcast of Nieuwe Vide Radio with artist Verena Hahn as a guest.
Verena Hahn's film We'll Have Time For That Later will be made available online at Nieuwe Vide's website on 27th April, 12.00.
Due to the Corona pandemic this year’s edition of Supermarket Art Fair has been postponed. Because Nieuwe Vide cannot present there at the moment we will share with you an online preview of the work we were going to show here. We’ll Have Time For That Later by Verena Hahn is an artistic documentary that explores the world experience and agency of preppers. Prepping is a practice in which so called preppers prepare to live a life that is non-depending on external parties, such as electricity suppliers, the police, food suppliers or a community. In the center of prepping stands the anticipation of a crisis that needs a long-term preparation. In Hahn’s work, prepping is not understood as a mere hobby, but as a specific agency of the time we live in. The film traces the connection between the storytelling in prepping and real contemporary conditions that influence and determine these world descriptions. The film reflects in a subtle but critical manner on the role of the filmmaker and the complexity of documenting certain ideologies.
