The right to own and use a gun for self-protection is a widespread and politically influential opinion in the USA. ARMS shows us how women in a patriarchal system are supposed to be transformed into confident individuals through the use of a gun. It gives us a sense of the manipulations that have led to weapons becoming a fetish of American society.
Please Come Again; Alisa Yang; USA; 9.00
An essay that narrates the collective and personal memory of three generations of Asian women through the rooms of Japanese love hotels.
1st DAY & NEXT MINUTE; Sara Koppel; MUSIC & SOUND; Sune Køter Kølster; Denmark; 2.30

VAFT & VAEFF proudly present: Beauty, Sex, and Shame -screening
@ Kino Diana (Humalistonkatu 3)
A collaboration screening between two video art festivals – about power, sexuality and their limits in society.
Curated by VAFT’s director Rose Pietola, the screening consists of a mixture of artworks shown at the seventh annual Video Art and Experimental Film Festival in New York in November 2017, and artworks that have been submitted to VAFT’s open calls over the years.
18 May - 30 September, York Art Gallery
The Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition is a celebration of emerging and establishing artists from across the world, inviting audiences to be inspired by a wealth of ideas and perspectives. From Photographic & Digital Art and Painting, Drawing & Mixed Media, to Three-Dimensional Design & Sculpture and Video, Installation & Performance, the works included in this year’s presentation come from diverse locations such as Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Singapore, the UK and the USA.
As the world is increasingly shaped by surveillance and data collection, the human condition has become one of rehearsal and performance. Exploring the wider effects of over-consumption, media stimulation and emotional disconnection, the artworks presented in 2018 call into question new modes of communication, offering reflection upon the era of post-truth, where human autonomy can be reduced to calculable, predictable patterns of behaviour.
Each piece draws upon social and political structures to question the value that we place on the world around us. From global financial systems to technologies that replicate nature, the diverse subject matter included in this year’s presentation holds innovation at its core, defining the vocabulary for the 21st century.

Nov 15th, Wednesday, 5:45PM, UltraStar Mission Valley, San Diego
These films subvert the idea of established norms, favouring the fluency of non-conformity and futuristic visions. Be carried away by awe-inspiring visuals and undeterminable landscapes that boast new depths of invention.
Pushing against repetition, this genre is accelerating into new
forms, transforming the cinema into a multi-layered universe filled with unrecognisable characters and timelines. One of the most visceral and all-encompassing strands of the festival.
