What did the future of yesteryear look like? With commentary from Oscar award winner Tilda Swinton, a captivating assemblage of early film clips, animated diagrams, scenes from a silent science fiction film, graphics, marketing images, and hypnosis spirals flash by at a rapid pace: The essay film Dreams Rewired – Mobilisierung der Träume (2015) by Manu Luksch, Martin Reinhart, and Thomas Tode is a visual trip back in time and an extraordinary mosaic of early media history that pulls the historic material into the present. Using archival footage from nearly 200 films, this film collage traces the desires and anxieties of a globally hyper-connected world. In the context of the current exhibition Back to the Future . The 19th Century in the 21st Century at C/O Berlin, Ann-Christin Bertrand, curator of the exhibition, and Martin Reinhart, co-director of the film, will talk about technological, societal, and artistic developments in modern (mass) communication.

Martin Reinhart (b. 1967 in Vienna) is a filmmaker and director. His cinematic works are informed by an innovative, experimental approach that tests the limits of the medium, both artistically and technically. Reinhart’s films have been shown at numerous international festivals and exhibitions including Ars Electronica (AT), Diagonale (AT), CPH:DOX Copenhagen (DK), Rotterdam Film Festival (NL), Yebisu Festival Tokio (JP), ZKM Karlsruhe (DE).
