Urban Research 2012: Call for Submission!

The program Urban Research, curated by Klaus W.
Eisenlohr for Directors Lounge 2012, reaches
beyond the genre "city films". Contemporary
artists are engaged in local politics, they are
concerned with specific urban problems and
developments, and they are directly interacting
with the public with performances and public
interventions. Due to rapid changes of urban
environment, place is no more a reliable urban
structure connected with consistency and
collective memory. Place must be reinvented and
newly defined over and over, and this does not
only apply for spaces of temporary use. Public
space in the sense of social interchange and
interaction - as well as just a space free to use
- is not a given opportunity any more, which can
be taken for granted. International artists
address these themes and issues with a variety of
forms, experimental, documentary, abstract, and
narrative; they intervene directly or they show
there visions of public space, and a new urban
landscape. For the festival presentation all
screening media (besides 35mm projection) and
art-related projects are welcome.

Urban Research 2012 will be first presented at
Directors Lounge 9-19 February 2012. The program
has also been presented internationally in
screenings in London, Mannheim, Hannover, Poznan,
Freiburg, Essen, Dordrecht, Senigallia, St.
Petersburg and Berlin.
