WHO SHOT CHRIS BURDEN?

Directors Juliana Borinski, Guillaume Leingre
United States
Runtime  10:28
Completion Date: May 31, 2021

"SHOOT" is one of the most famous filmed performances in the history of art: it shows the young American artist Chris Burden being shot with a rifle. He is 25 years old. The scene is shot in Los Angeles. If "SHOOT" illustrates the artist's sacrifice to create his work, the performance is also part of a cultural fascination with violence - and with filmed violence. But the person who made the film ("to shoot"), and who took care of the artist, remains unknown: it is Barbara T. Smith, at the time Barbara Burden. She lives in Pasadena and remembers in 2018 the circumstances of the action.

Map of the World

Photographer Daniel Corey
United States

MAP OF THE WORLD is a conceptual photography series that started with a single picture of my eyes, taken during the isolation of quarantine. The series would grow as I started to blend images of patterns, places and things that I love across my face. Most importantly, maps of the world would adorn my likeness, to signify that we would soon be able to travel and take this world back again.
