European Media Art Festival «EMAF», Osnabrueck, Germany
Program curator: Hermann Noering
The European Media Art Festival in Osnabrück is one of the
largest multimedia events in Europe. The festival's exhibitions, retrospectives,
artists' portraits, performances, seminars and the Electronic Café, all
enable the audience to gain an extensive overview into the international world
of media art.
This programme encompasses the festival's
highlights and works that show the way forward.
The video programme starts with Kill the DJ by
Karim Patwa, a coffee making manual in the style of an espresso clip. In
Interview mit Paul de Bruin-Koplopers by Christian Frisch we witness a strange
encounter and a very common action.
If by Marcus Nascimento and Aggeo Simoes is the
attempt to visualise several
different senses of perception in the form of Haikus.
The concept of Monique Moumblow´s video
Sleeping Car is a formal, but very poetic treatise on the image-sound
Isabelle Martin uses I Go On Dancing Before You
as a kind of video diary to come
to terms with the end of a love affair.
In Ondrej Andera´s experimental feature
film study Night Between Us a relationship has a deadly end.
1891 Voltios, Carino by Alejandro Alvarado and
Pedro Sanchez de la Nieta Barros is a sinister protrayal of a man's emotions and
feelings on death row.
Dave Priestman's experimental study
Rott&Damn begins with a night drive across Rotterdam and the Erasmus Bridge.
For Elsewhere Egbert Mittelstädt adapted
the principle of a fotofinish camera by simulating the effect with a digital
Routemaster by Ilppo Pojohla marks the end of
the programme with a kind of rhythmic transcendent montage of sequences from a
car race and the use of human bodies as crash test dummies.
