Festival of German video art and experimental cinema
The fifth edition of 'Emerging Artists - Contemporary Experimental Films and Video Art from Germany', an event presented in Italian preview by ICIT Livorno, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut, the cultural association Blob Art and with the partnership of the Municipality of Livorno, will take place on Saturday 3rd July, at the SAC – spazio arte contemporanea in Livorno.
The contemporary experimental films and video art festival is created by AG Kurzfilm and German Films and represents a point of reference for the whole young European audiovisual production.
The purpose is to promote the works of young artists belonging to german experimental cinema, not only in a cinematographic contest but in contemporary art dedicated spaces as well.
Curated by a scientific committee composed of Sarah Adam (A WALL IS A SCREEN), Anne Gaschütz (FILMFEST DRESDEN manager), Carsten Aschmann (filmmaker, curator and Lower Saxony Film and Media Office’s representative), Tobias Hering (freelance curator) and Anne Turek (project manager "Emerging Artists", AG Kurzfilm), the festival’s aim is to show and investigate the genealogy of images, their present potential and their future value through the work of eight emerging artists.
How are the images born? How do they move us? How do they manage to set in motion events and actions that we often perceive as "real life", helping us to shape individual perception as much as political realities?
These are some of the issues for which the festival shows us how the medium of the moving image constitutes an ineluctable artistic strategy of our time.
A meeting with the artists Daniel Theiler (Top Down Memory) and Krzysztof Honowski (Beasts of No Nation) is scheduled for Friday 9th July.
