HARDCORE vs SOFTCORE – Provocative film and video art

Filmform presents an evening of subversive film and video works at the Gothenburg Film Festival. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.

While the concept of provocation has become something of a cliché, today´s artists are using more subtle ways of challenging society´s values and standards. For this evening, Filmform has put together a program of historically interesting films and videos which question and problematize the notion of provocative film making.
