Experimental Film Workshop

For this edition of the Artists’ cinema program the focus shifts towards making and what it means to construct an image. An experimental & improvised camera-less approach will form the basis of this workshop by repurposing old film strips & tinkering with props, instruments & electronic sound. Elements of this will unfold as a live ephemeral gesture giving it numerous glances & angles of view from the participants while others will be recorded, filmed, screened and performed. This foregrounds editing as a process in itself, which is also key in experimental filmmaking. The workshop will be preceded by a re-staging/screening of Ein Bild (An Image) by the late German filmmaker, Harun Farocki.
