Brothers quay night*footnotesINSTITUTE BENJAMENTA OR THIS DREAM PEOPLE CALL HUMAN LIFE by Brothers Quay

Footnotes are small peculiarities of great depth. Modestly set apart from the main body of the text, they are meant to prove and refer without distracting the reader. Footnotes are invitations to take a stroll through the undiscovered. The Brothers Quay have accepted this invitation. Using animation, light, camera and music they make objects speak which silently preserve their history in archives and cultural practices. They tell small, sensual dramas using puppets, objects and natural materials scarred by time and have had an almost unparalleled influence on international artistic animation.

 

To accompany the Homage, DOK Leipzig will, in conversations with the Brothers Quay, follow up some footnotes to their works, taking up keywords such as “subjective documentary”, camera and light as animated protagonists, what they do outside the cinema and the political responsibility of marzipan. To close the night, the Quays will take us to a servants’ school around 1900 with “Institute Benjamenta”.1

At the time, the Schaubühne Lindenfels (*1876), which hosts the Brothers Quay Night, was a ballroom. The scenery preserved until today remains discretely silent about many passionate affairs it observed then.
