|Artists Beyond – Artist Talk Mark Boulos, 27.04.2010|
|On Tuesday 27 April, BAK, basis voor actuele kunst hosts an artist talk with Mark Boulos. The talk takes place within the framework of Artists Beyond, the prelude to the 6th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art (11.6.-8.8.2010). The various events in the Artists Beyond program offer insights into artistic research and work and enable engagement with the creative process as well as an exchange between audience and artists at the sites of their production. On this occasion, Cosmin Costinas,, curator of BAK talks to Mark Boulos-who will be exhibiting in the 6th Berlin Biennale-about his methodologies and principles of working and about the artist's position in the complex contexts he chooses to address.|
Mark Boulos is currently working on a multi-screen documentary video installation about the persistence of Communism beyond its oft-heralded death, and about the relationship between love, idealism, and rebellion. Boulos has just returned from the Philippines, where he filmed the guerrillas of the New People's Army. The Maoist insurgency has been fighting there since 1969, but since 2001 has been labeled a "terrorist" group by the European Union and United States.
This year the Berlin Biennale, organized by KW Institute for Contemporary Art and supported by the Federal Cultural Foundation since 2004, takes place for the sixth time at numerous locations in Berlin. Between 11 June and 8 August 2010, the Berlin Biennale presents a wide range of artistic practices that pose questions about "the contemporary" and the relation that art holds to this very notion.

The Berlin Biennale is organized by KW Institute for Contemporary Art and funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation. Artists Beyond has been funded with support from the European Commission.
