Experimental Film – A thousand possibilities in the blink of an eye

Due to the dominance of the feature film, the experimental film is often pushed into the background. And still it’s the experimenting with the moving pictures that has in turn pushed the narrative cinema forward by extending established forms. Without these experiments, which have been working against a conventionalisation from the visually experienceable outsets on, even today’s commercial film would appear much poorer.This workshop will be about the goal of throwing all conventional forms of moving pictures overboard. Starting with an old strip of 1mm film, we will experience and research what moving pictures are able to do besides just narrating. We’ll see that this will be quite a lot.
