What is the difference between reality and fantasy? Lene Berg explores these seemingly mutually exclusive worlds in her films, including 2012’s Kopfkino. The premise is simple: Eight women sit behind a long table, dressed as various female stereotypes, and exchange stories about the fulfillment of their sexual fantasies. Starting with a scripted conversation, the actors perform with no direction, changing and adding details and anecdotes from their own lives. Manifesta 9 curator Katerina Gregos writes “Berg crafts short, witty, incisive, and often humorous filmic stories, using lo-fi means to interrogate the question of history and historiography.” This publication, accompanying the exhibition of Kopfkino and other films at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, features essays from Sabeth Buchmann, Katerina Gregos, and Dieter Roelstraete, among others.
