On February 11, “Letters to Jonas Mekas. Hot afternoon with Autarkia and Syndicate”, a tribute to the great Lithuanian filmmaker and pioneer of avant-garde cinema, to whom “Images Are Real”, on show at Mattatoio Roma until 23 February 2023, comes to life in the MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma spaces.

For the occasion, the curatorial duo Francesco Urbano Ragazzi invites the independent platforms Autarkia and Syndicate.

Led by JL Murtaugh, the two platforms gather a group of friends to celebrate the filmmaker’s powerful cultural legacy. Artists from the new Lithuanian scene pay tribute to their intellectual connection to Mekas and elaborate on a genre to which the artist has long been committed: epistolary and video-letter. In the spaces of the museum video works alternate with live interventions.
