  • Austrian Film Museum - In Person: Deborah Stratman

    By on

    Over the last 15 years, Deborah Stratman's (*1967) moving image works have gained increased recognition in the art world as well as the world of cinema. She has developed a unique documentary form which, though interested in the material reality of visible and audible surroundings, sees these as mirror images of an inner disposition. Natural landscapes and landscapes marked by civilization, traditional and pop-cultural rituals, and fragments of a history of cinema come together in a pointed documentary essayistic expression of the (mainly) American soul.

  • Light Industry: Seven Films by Renate Sami

    By on

    Introduced by Robert Beavers

    I met Renate Sami when the filmmaker Ute Aurand invited me to show films at FilmSamstag in Berlin in the late 1990s, but it was only later that I experienced the calm directness of her own film and video work, and became acquainted with the emotion at its source. When I moved to Berlin, I learned more: how she came to film and what directions her filmmaking took

  • A Sentimental Punk: An Incomplete Kurt Kren Film Retrospective, 1956-1996

    By on

    Pioneering Austrian experimental filmmaker Kurt Kren (b. Vienna, 1929; d. Vienna 1998) is an elusive yet persistent figure in twentieth-century histories of both performance- and film-based experimentation. His practice was idiosyncratic to say the least, staked in experimentation across media communication platforms in film and the visual arts no matter where that took him—from cooperative theaters, midnight screenings at commercial theaters, fringe film festivals in abandoned subway stations, and punk shows in warehouses; to art schools, artist studios, galleries and international art and film festivals, across nations and continents.

  • Cinema Parenthèse: Land/Scapes 1

    By on

    Cinema Parenthèse presents Land/Scapes, a series in three programs with films by Claes Söderquist (Sweden), Els van Riel (Belgium), and Werner Nekes (Germany), that seeks to explore the encounter of film and the expanse of landscape. The encounter stages the possibility on the one hand of the investigation of historical and dimensional aspects of space, and on the other, a reflective reconnaissance of the film medium.
