The screening/streaming program They I Sie I Oni features Serbian artists and filmmakers from the Vienna-based Golden Pixel Cooperative. The online project was conceived by Belgrade-based curator Maja Ćirić. They I Sie I Oni addresses the exhibition of artistic films in the context of the Internet and its environment of competitive images. The project is a public reflection on cinematic data and how its visibility can be embedded and presented in these digital spaces overflowing with information.
From April 15-18, 2021, daily a new part of the film program will be released on the website:
The publication AWAY: The Book about Residencies documents and analyzes various aspects of the Artist-in-Residence Program run by the Austrian Chancellery, which has been facilitating residencies for artists and art theorists for decades.

The Golden Pixel Cooperative
Association for moving images, arts and media
The Golden Pixel Cooperative (GPC) is an association for moving images, arts and media, active within both exhibition and cinema contexts. Our goal is to develop sustainable structures for the production, distribution, and presentation of moving image works by contemporary artists, as well as to facilitate exchange and support between artists. It is important for us to promote empowerment and solidarity between artists, and to initiate and foster a dialogue with a range of audiences. Collectively and associatively we develop a variety of formats such as screenings, exhibitions, artist talks, and publications.
FC Gloria connects women* working in all fields of the film industry, successfully promoting gender equality in the Austrian film industry since 2010. Our vision: just as many men and women* make films and have equal budgets available. As a powerful medium influencing public opinion and culture, film should depict the diversity of society – in front of, as well as behind the camera.
Short film Program within the festival The New Normal, Volkstheater, Vienna, 2021
Animals, plants, viruses, objects, algorithms and weather phenomena: they all interact with us. We are intertwined with innumerable organisms within ecological circuits. As unsettling as the Faustian pact with technology may seem in this light, we depend on it if we are to find a way out of the current crises. The Vienna-based platform for art and moving image, The Golden Pixel Cooperative, is curating a late-night film program especially for “The New Normal”: jumping through decades and genres, the Rote Bar at Volkstheater presents cinematic confrontations on people and nature, on the environment and the Capitalocene, on entanglements and liminal borders (including films by Lisa Rave, Katrin Hornek, Enar de Dios Rodríguez). Flora, fauna, proliferation - in 25 frames per second.
Film program curated by Katharina Swoboda and Lisa Truttmann, The Golden Pixel Cooperative, with works by Caitlin Berrigan, Enar de Dios Rodríguez, Marie Gavois & Michel Klöfkorn, Katrin Hornek, Lisa Rave, Sasha Litvintseva.
Stones exist all over the planet, playing an important part of our shared human environment. We reach for them, process them and corrode them, in order to obtain valuable raw materials. Without inherent power, rocks are moved by human intervention, and forces such as erosion, wind, earthmoving or other organisms. The film program “Reframing Nature: Stone Narratives” tells of personal and industrial relationships between humans and stones. Within the cinematic frame, the rocks come to life – set in motion and artistic form.
Organized by The Golden Pixel Cooperative in collaboration with national park Gesäuse, with films by Enar de Dios Rodríguez, Nicole Krenn & Lisa Truttmann, Lisa Rave, Jan Švankmajer, Katharina Swoboda, presented by Katharina Swoboda und Lisa Truttmann.
Two short film programs traveling between
Vienna, Los Angeles and elsewhere, 2021
Two Journeys is a project by The Golden Pixel Cooperative, conceived by Viktoria Schmid and Lisa Truttmann, in collaboration with Los Angeles-based filmmakers Rebecca Baron and Nora Sweeney.
Through this collective exchange, two short film programs were compiled, consisting of films that relate broadly to the two places of their creation, Vienna and Los Angeles. Austria and the United States are just starting points – we travel to a library in Buenos Aires, a ranch in rural Mexico, the sky in Switzerland, a pool in Tehran and through intangible spaces and surfaces. The films, including documentary, experimental, and narrative work, range in form, and some defy categories. The works of pioneers such as Chick Strand, Charles Burnett and Friedl vom Gröller are in dialogue with those of filmmakers from the next generation. Taking the title from Vienna to Los Angeles: Two Journeys, Esther McCoy’s collection of letters between architects residing in Los Angeles and Vienna, the Two Journeys project aims to create a cross cultural conversation through cinema.
With films by Charles Burnett, Joie Estrella Horwitz, Victoria Fu, Juan Pablo González, Friedl vom Gröller, Luis Gutiérrez Arias, Adele Horne, Rosa John, Karl-Heinz Klopf, Nathalie Koger,Laura Kraning, Claudia Larcher, Brigid McCaffrey, Dorit Margreiter, Simona Obholzer, Sasha Pirker, Marlies Pöschl, Raphael Reichl, David de Rozas, Lotte Schreiber, Chick Strand, Katharina Swoboda, John Henry Theisen and Antoinette Zwirchmayr.
On the occasion of the premiere broadcast of the radio play “Herr im Garten”, produced by Bayrischer Rundfunk, The Golden Pixel Cooperative and Verena Dürr hosts a collective listening session at Medienwerkstatt in Vienna. The radio play is followed by a talk between the author and Lisa Truttmann
The symposium Framed Existences addresses various artistic strategies of depicting the world and its social, political, and ecological systems. Their specific approaches to ‘framing’ humans and non-humans contribute significantly to our perception of the subject involved. As a result, they produce social, political, and cultural valuations and effects.
With contributions by:
Jana Seehusen: framing with/out frames
Nika Autor: Aesthetics in Politically Engaged and Committed Artistic Practice
Sílvia das Fadas: Auguries for a Non-Hierarchical Framing and Flourishing
Angela Anderson: Three (or More) Ecologies: A Feminist Articulation of Eco-Intersectionality

More recently she is concerned with the biographies of everyday objects, embedding them in personal and collective narratives. She studied Transmedia Arts at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and received a Fulbright scholarship for her graduate studies in Film/Video at California Institute of the Arts.
Truttmann’s moving images and installations have been shown at exhibition venues and film festivals such as CPH:DOX Copenhagen, New York FF Projections, Images Festival Toronto, Jihlava IDFF, Viennale, Diagonale, KHM Wien, MAK Wien, Kunsthalle Project Space, Alianza Francesa Buenos Aires i.a.

Exercises for a Balancing Act Video installation, 2005
10 SD video loops, rear projected
Wooden board, broken chair
In collaboration with Verena Dürr
WUK, Vienna, AT
Not walking, not sitting.
Not standing, not lying.
Not departed, not arrived.
Not idle, not dynamic.
Not falling, not landing.
Not down, not up.
Not serious, not ridiculous.
The situation tips, its denouement is uncertain.
In-between what has yet to happen and what's already past:
Depicting a transitory state.
A precariously balanced wooden panel, supported but by a fragile broken chair, about to crash any moment. Ten short video loops, projected from the back, give the impression of small moving photographs.
Nicht gehend, nicht sitzend.
Nicht stehend, nicht liegend.
Nicht losgelaufen, nicht angekommen.
Nicht träge, nicht dynamisch.
Nicht fallend, nicht landend.
Nicht unten, nicht oben.
Nicht ernsthaft, nicht lächerlich.
Die Situation kippt, der Ausgang ist ungewiss.
Zwischen noch nicht und schon passiert:
Einen momentanen Zustand beschreibend.
Im Raum ist eine Zwischenwand installiert, scheinbar dem Absturz nahe, gestützt durch einen zerbrochenen Stuhl. Zehn kurze Video-Loops werden von hinten auf Rückprojektionsfolie projiziert und vermitteln den Eindruck von kleinen, minimal bewegten Fotos.
