SFC – Shoah Film Collection
is a worldwide unique media art initiative
by the Cologne based internationally renown media artist and curator
Wilfried Agricola de Cologne. Founded on 27 January 2010, on occasion of the 65th return of the Liberation of Auschwitz, the initiative is addressed to young generations of artists and filmmakers to deal with the topic of Shoah (Holocaust)and collective trauma caused by totalitarianism by using new technologies and contemporary approaches in order to find future oriented ways to keep vivid the memory of the collective trauma by sensitizing via art. Meanwhile the collection is consisting of 60 outstanding works of experimental and documentary artfilms and videos.

In order to present Shoah Film Collection to a wider audience, Agricola de Cologne created in 2012 the experimental event context – “A Virtual Memorial – Commemorative Interventions” – placing SFC in the context of complementary interventions, such as lectures, screenings, exhibitions, artists presentations, talks and discussions and much more, in order to activate the audience, as well.

The first pilot manifestation “A Virtual Memorial Riga 2012″ – standing under the Patronage of the European Parliament – was a collaboration between Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust Museum, Culture and Arts Project NOASS Riga and artvideoKOELN – 01 -30 June 2012.

The manifestation of Shoah Film Collection in Lithuania 2013 – can be considered as a second pilot project based on the experiences made in Latvia one year before.

an exhibition running until 27 October 2013 featuring art works by Agricola de Cologne, Eitan Vitkon, Paolo Bonfiglio, Tammy Mike Laufer, Grace Graupe-Pillard, Shelley Jordon, Ariel Yannay Shani and Joseph Rabie – complementing the screenings of the 18 programs of films and videos – a visual art performance by Doron Polak, the internationally renown Israeli performance artist on 25 September, 14h @ Tolerance Center/Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum, and as the finalization of the meeting, the soundart performance by the Lithuanian Arturas Bumsteinas & Wolumen Trio @ St. Catherine’s Church Vilnius on 26 September 2013, 19h.
