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.
