Panel and film screening with Charlie Fox, writer and artist from London 


Museum Brandhorst and FILMFEST MÜNCHEN are cooperating for the third time, this year on the occasion of the exhibition "Future Bodies from a Recent Past—Sculpture, Technology, and the Body since the 1950s". The program is focusing on chancing images of the body - also in its monstrous forms: "Body Horror." On June 28, 2022, a panel discussion and film screening with Charlie Fox will take place at 8 p.m. at Museum Brandhorst. While Charlie Fox takes a rather intimate, haunted look at the genre in his program "Licking My Wounds—Body Horror Inside Out" along films and videos since the late 1980s, the current cinema productions "A Banquet," (directed by Ruth Paxton, UK 2021), "Dual," (directed by Riley Stearns, USA 2022), and "Watcher" (directed by Chloe Okuno, USA 2022) will be screened in the main program of FILMFEST MÜNCHEN.


Artist and author Charlie Fox talks about his personal film selection LICKING MY WOUNDS at Museum Brandhorst as part of this year's thematic focus on BODY HORROR. Together with filmmakers Ruth Paxton (A BANQUET) and Chloe Okuno (WATCHER), they will explore what Body Horror can mean today. Has the subgenre changed in recent years? How have directors such as David Cronenberg, Claire Denis and Tarek Saleh influenced young filmmakers and what interactions arise between the visual arts and the medium of film?

The discussion will be moderated by Patrizia Dander (head curator at Museum Brandhorst) and Julia Weigl (programmer at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN).
