The sysmposium 'Framed Existences' addresses various artistic strategies of depicting the world and its social, political, and ecological systems. Their specific approaches to 'framing' humans and non-humans contribute significantly to our perception of the subject involved. As a result, they produce social, political, and cultural valuations and effects.

In her lecture, artist and writer Jana Seehusen addresses history and memory in film and explores how memory becomes visible, or 'actualized,' through the act of framing in Lola Arias' Teatro de Guerra (2018). Artist Nika Autor presents her work with the 'Newsreel Front' ('Obzorniška Fronta') collective, which understands the newsreel as an emancipatory and engaged practice. Filmmaker Sílvia das Fadas provides insight into her current film project by talking about 'Auguries for a Non-Hierarchical Framing and Flourishing,' and looking at the ruins of a commune in Alentejo, Portugal. Film artist Angela Anderson presents her audio-visual research project Three (or more) Ecologies, which juxtaposes the Dakotas (US) and Rojava (northern Syria) by focusing on the local women's resistance against ecologically harmful machines of the capitalist military-industrial complex.

This event is a co-operation between Medienwerkstatt Wien and The Golden Pixel Cooperative.
