German /  German subtitles /  English /  English subtitles /  approx. 40 mins.

As part of a four-week residency at the “Digital Lab #2”, ghostrich&cylixe and Iyo Bisseck, Petja Ivanova, Rain Rose and Kaya Zakrzewska researched, developed and produced at HAU in spring 2022. They were selected by a jury within the framework of an open call and an online hack space. Which artistic themes, forms and working methods are of perspective importance for the free contemporary digital performance arts? The hybrid work processes were closely accompanied by a camera. The experimental film “NEEDED SPACES” interweaves analogue and digital spaces and provides an insight into the collaboration between the artists and HAU, which revolved around strategies of accessibility and participation.
