20 Years of the European Media Art Festival - the forum for Expanded
Media in Europe
The meeting point for audiences and guests from home and abroad.
Around 250 new works of media art, including world premieres, will be
presented. The festival shows film as a contemporary work of art in
cinemas and exhibitions, both performed and using multimedia.
The exhibition "Final Cut" directs our view to the relationship
between media art and cinema. From 25 April to 20 May an artistic look
at the dream machine "cinema" will be given at the Kunsthalle
Dominikanerkirche. International artists will demonstrate their
fascination with cinema, but will also question the values, codes and
patterns behind the films. Works will be presented by artists such as
Paul McCarthy, Alex McQuilkin, Mischa Kuball, Klaus vom Bruch, Candice
Breitz, Mark Lewis, Christoph Girardet, Bjorn Melhus, Peter
Tscherkassky, Christoph Draeger, Clemens von Wedemeyer and Pierre
Huyghe. There will also be plenty of opportunity to participate in
talks with the artists and attend lectures on the subject.
The exhibition is funded by the Federal Cultural Foundation.
A review of media art will be given by our special guests, the
director of the ZKM, Peter Weibel, Lynn Hershman, Birgit Hein of the
fur Bildende Kunste Braunschweig and Malcolm LeGrice, who
will be showing their personal selection of films.
Around 180 current experimental shorts, feature-length films and
videos have been selected from a total of roughly 2000 works submitted
from around the world. They range from narrative approaches to
documentary/analytical views of war events and environmental problems.
