Urban Research on Film

A special themed program on city development and
urban space curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr:
Urban space is under rapid change. The city has
long played a predominant role in the work of
artists, the city as image, as ideal, as Moloch,
as source of joy and social destruction, and not
least as icon of Modernity. With the increased
dynamic of city development however - either as
Shrinking Cities or exploding Megacities - more
and more artists take up the issue of urban
development and adopt urban space and public
space as their theme.

The program includes film, video and media work
by artists who are concerned with the theme of
urban development and public space. Artists who
use their own original language, experimental
work, documentary, animation or essay together
create a discourse on the contemporary city.
Multi-channel and installation work will
complement each other.
