Premiere: CONGLOMERATE – Block Two
Headquartered at Kinderhook & Caracas, CONGLOMERATE is a collaborative Gesamtkunstwerk presented in the form of a television network. The project is realized by a core team of five artists and filmmakers: Sol Calero, Ethan Hayes-Chute, Derek Howard, Christopher Kline and Dafna Maimon. CONGLOMERATE acts as a producer of original programs, also inviting additional Berlin-based and international artists to realize their own segments, sets, commercials and specials for the network.
Premiering at Kino Moviemento, BLOCK TWO will feature guest contributions from Molly Lowe, Shana Moulton, Stephen G. Rhodes, a special closing credit track from Heatsick, adverts by The Institute for New Feeling and station ID animations by Mario Campos.
