Ute Adamczewski is a video artist and filmmaker from Germany.
Residence: Ute Adamczewski
Her work revolves around the urban fabric as a mirror of society. During her residency at I: project space in autumn 2017 she was working on the video project I:conditions, which addresses the Chinese city as a showcase for radical transformation. In a film arrangement, I:conditions observes routines: dwelling, work, leisure. Filmed in the infinite high rise-compounds which represent Beijing, each video reveals the interdependence between the urban environs and a protagonist who lives and works there. Within each subjective spatial description, differing realities become visible.
