the screenings:

> august 24th 9pm Telemach Wiesinger (film) & Andreas Gogol (acoustic performance) at Baiz
Telemach Gogol

Telemach Wiesinger decided to take a small reel of 16mm film on each of his trips around the world. In every country he carefully selected a location and his contributors (not to say performers!) and captured a scene of 2 minutes and 45 seconds each. Andreas Gogol joined Telemach Wiesinger in putting together their own journey based on the collected episodes and combining them in a new imaginary space
During screening, Andreas Gogol composes live on his instruments. He interacts with the film and makes the artists rich version of cinema visible. Each performance creates ann entirely new experience more

> august 17th 9pm Udo Rathke (screening) & micronaut (guitar/samples)
at Kunsthaus Meinblau


For several years, Udo Rathke has experimented with the compositional possibilities offered by the computer as a medium of painting with other materials.By using small fragments of pictures found on the net or else he creates ever changing paintings of magical light, now transformed, into a delicate succession of color.
Stefan Streck uses found audio pieces, next to his own guitar play, in a similiar way of layered composition to create absorbing collages of sound.
Both are intrigued by the diversity of microcosmic diversity.more

> july 20th 9pm Tobias Schmuecking at Z Bar (Bergstr. 2, 10115 Berlin)
Tobias Schmuecking will be present

Tobias Schmuecking tells stories by using images. Space, place and encounters do not appear alien to us, but seem to be rather familiar from previous occasions, back then in dream time, or in a different film.
These everyday places, such as a caravan on a hill or a public pool, stay in my memory, like those places of my own blissful experiences.

> july 13th 10pm Kim Collmer- forming motion at Rote Loge
Forming Motion is a night of animation shorts collected from around the world. For this series, animation is depicted as both a connector of images, and as a reminder of the artificiality and tedious nature of its construction. Many artists in this program create a tension between the flow and the construct. Within their work there is a focus on texture, line, movement, light and rhythm and film's ability to contain life and energy. Based on the screening at Inner Spaces Gallery Poznan. more
