For the fourth time the quitch wel­comes “Salon Wiesen­grund”, a dis­cus­sion for­mat between art and phi­los­o­phy run by There­sa Luise Gindl­strass­er and Stephan Blu­men­schein since Decem­ber 2010.

Stan Brakhage (1933 — 2003) is regard­ed as one of the most impor­tant fig­ures of 20th cen­tu­ry exper­i­men­tal film. His approach of act­ing direct­ly on the film’s car­ri­er mate­r­i­al as well as on the tech­ni­cal appa­ra­tus made him an ear­ly rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Amer­i­can film avant-garde. He taught at the School of Art Insti­tute of Chica­go and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Col­orado. We select­ed three (short) films from his enor­mous­ly exten­sive life’s work of over 380 films to enjoy in the back­yard of the quitch on this warm sum­mer evening. Watch with us!

Intro­duc­to­ry short bio­graph­i­cal infor­ma­tion about the per­son Stan Brakhage as well as a few words about his work, his approach and the­o­ret­i­cal con­sid­er­a­tions.

Before and after, a bar­be­cue is ready to fin­ish what you have brought (!). Sal­ads and sauces are also wel­come.
