Themed Programme on Urban Development and Public Space
curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr
at Directours Lounge 2006
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. The increased dynamic of urban development - either as Shrinking Cities or exploding Megacities - urges for new concepts and a rethinking of urban space. Contemporary architectural and social impacts on urban developments and public space have become a theme for many artists. The collection of short films comprises documentary, experimental and intermediate forms.
Urban Research on Film is an ongoing film and video screening project selected by Klaus W. Eisenlohr for Directors Lounge in Berlin. Urban Research presents artists and filmmakers who address the progress of urbanity and who are concerned with urban space and public space in their work.
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.
This is a special program at Directors Lounge February 8—18, 2007.
