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.
