Selection of Berlin International Directors Lounge
Curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr

Directors Lounge Berlin at Pictura in Dordrecht
PICTURA, one of the oldest artist organizations in Holland has her own Directors Lounge, which in fact, was inspired by Directors Lounge Berlin. A visit of the director of PICTURA, Jeanne van der Horst at Directors Lounge 2009 in Berlin gave the inspiration for a visit and presentation in Dordrecht.

On this occasion, and in the tradition of Directors Lounge both in Berlin and Dordrecht, the curator Klaus W. Eisenlohr put together a program with an emphasis in his field of attention, Urban Research. The selection was drawn from the main program of Directors Lounge, from his own program Urban Research, and from the program of Rattapallax, New York. Directors Lounge, which had its fifth anniversary this year, has actually become quite influenced by the theme of Urban Research, which is part of the program for now 3 years. On the other hand, Directors Lounge's mission, to be an open platform and to bring together media arts, video installation and experimental film, genres, which have been well established in arts but separated for decades will be well presented through this exhibition and screening at PICTURA.
(Klaus W. Eisenlohr)

The program is a selection of Directors Lounge and from the special DL programs *Rattapallax, New York and Urban Research Berlin
Directors Lounge is a brainchild of Designhof e.V. and Gallery A&O
