Between spins, stops and positions

titre provisoire’s works often examine the historical connection between globalisation and colonialism – and the acts of resistance against these two forces – with a particular interest in German colonialism in Southeast Asia. For Singapore Biennale 2019, the artists researched into historical figures like Carl Semper, a 19th-century German ethnologist who worked in Mindanao, southern Philippines. titre provisoire then developed six characters who drive the film’s narrative. Shot entirely in Singapore, the film revolves around these characters who personify certain roles or positions, such as ‘Colonialism Deliberately Forgotten,’ ‘Untranslatable Nature’ and ‘Self-Optimisation,’ as well as new representations of the ‘Ethnologist,’ ‘Dressmaker’ and the ‘Kiosk Owner.’

The contribution to the Singapore Biennale by titre provisoire (Cathleen Schuster & Marcel Dickhage) was supported by the exhibition funding programme of ifa.
