Videograms of a Revolution documents the overthrow of Romanian President Nicolae Ceausescu in 1989. The montage of clips, shot by various filmmakers over the course of the regime's collapse and pieced together by filmmakers Farocki and Ujică, offers an appropriately disjointed and nonlinear perspective on the events as they unfolded. Present to discuss the film are several of the artists featured in the exhibition Six Lines of Flight. Preceded by Pipe Dreams, an experimental video examining symbols of eternal power at the dawn of the 2011 Syrian uprising.
