videoclub X MARTIN GOYA BUSINESS – Screening in Beijing, 15-16 Dec

videoclub & MARTIN GOYA BUSINESS (Hangzhou) present a series of short films by UK artist filmmakers in Beijing on 15-16 December.

The selected works are inspired by and created using technologies commonly employed in videogame development, such as game engines and 3D rendering. From delving into cyborg ontology to exploring queerness in science fiction, we invite you to join us on a journey into the boundless world of the digital age through these hyperrealistic films.

The event is held at The Groundless Factory in Beijing and is the finale event of Dreamy Place in 2023.
