U POTRAZI... / LOOKING FOR...      50'

Hot Afternoons Have Been in Montana / Vruća su poslijepodneva bila u Montani
Ken Kimmelman / US / 15'30'' / 2005.

Based on a 1925 "Nation" prize poem by Eli Siegel, this dramatic montage, combining photographs, live-action and special effects, shows how a hot afternoon in Montana is related to the whole world - people, places, things, events - past and present. Ken Kimmelman (1940) is award-winning filmmaker and recipient of many prizes: Emmy Awards for his anti-prejudice film "The Heart Knows Better" (1995), ''Sesame Street'' (1997-98) etc. He has made and produced many shorts, animated series, and commissioned films for UN for children and adults promoting human rights and fighting against racism.

Hobby Metal / Hobi - metal
Maximiliano Contenti / UY / 11' / 2006.

A strange young man, addicted to his hobby of searching and collecting everything he finds with his metal detector, has just found something new for his collection. The aim of this short is to show a strange character, an unusual being with an interfering obsession. The visual idea is to film everything from an external point of view, that of an intruder that follows him almost in real time, as if staring in silence at a rare animal.

Loop City / Beskonačni grad
Sven Holly Nullmeyer / DE / 15' / 2005.

A city is lost in time loop. The outside world sends an agent to find out what has happened. It’s a film that resembles Chris Marker's "La Jettée". Sven Holly Nullmeyer is an audio-visual artist.

Lighting Bolts and Man Hands / Munje i ljudske ruke
Markus Wambsganss / DE / 6'30'' / 2004.

Humans have disappeared. A cat wanders around and suddenly enters a house. Inside everyone is dead. Then time gets rewound just to reveal what happened. Human living has been completely wiped out. The earth is quiet. Markus Wambsganss (1974) studied Media Arts at the Bauhaus University in Weimar and at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. His films have been screened at numerous festivals worldwide and received awards and nominations at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen and the Venice Film Festival.

Kill Time / Ubiti vrijeme
Carsten Aschmann / DE / 17'30'' / 2006.

"Kill Time" is a short movie about urban boredom, isolation and everyday life paranoia. Islandic artist Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson (also known of sound researchers Stilluppsteypa) is heavily ridden by an inner demon, but quickly finds an agreement with his misanthropic alter ego: "I tell you people are no good, they are cheap. I hate people." Excessive consume, addiction and elitist ideas keeps his motivation up, the body of work legitimates the artists’ schizophrenia... This is a fine, but not too serious effort to deal with the idea of identity in the field of experimental arts. Carsten Aschmann lives and works in Hannover. In past few years he has worked a lot as an editor and producer of documentary projects with the machine performance group BBM. He also produced the fireartist Kain Karawahn, and Agnieszka Jurek's "Does That Hurt You?" a mystery feature about and with David Lynch.

Film Avant-Garde in Austria
/ 1996-2001 / 76’ / 8th of May 2007

Peter Tscherkassky / Happy_End
/ 1996 / 35
mm / 11’

A found footage film about oral rituals, about festive occasions and about a married couple who understood how to enrich and enliven their cozy togetherness. We see the pair pouring drinks, cutting cakes, making toasts... Finally the exuberant movement of the dancing woman freezes. It is a deeply ambiguous moment that, from the expression on her face, allows one to think of something close to despair. On something like a modern, alienated, baroque vanity motive, which is still present in the Austrian tradition, and whose abrasion with the sensual certainty of the moment of drinking an egg liqueur gives “Happy_End” a wider meaning. (Bert Rebhandl)

Elke Groen / Tito-Material
/ 1998 / 16
mm / 6’

Elke Groen’s “Tito Material” unearths film fragments featuring Field Marshall Tito, found in the rubble of a defunct theatre in Yugoslavia, which take on an almost iconic significance with the magnification of every scratch and tear. Dated from 1978, the weathered film shows a public and private Tito. The material is in the process of decay. Holes gape through the emulsion. Some passages have become completely abstract and only consist of shapes and colors. Groen investigated this strip of film, (...) she notes details, enlarges parts of the images (and, thus, also the grain). (...) She reacts to the origins and historical context of the piece cautiously. (...) The original source was apparently a propaganda film of a system now consigned to the history books, and it made extensive use of pictures from the Second World War. (Thomas Korschill)

Lisl Ponger / Passages
/ 1996 / 35 mm / 12’

A woman stands alone at the railing of a passenger liner and gazes into the blue. She will remember for us an arrival in New York, the walk of a young couple through China-town, the house boats in Shanghai and the excited children who gather round the visitor with the obscure picture machine. Beneath the pictures the sounds of distant lands can be heard and, in parallel, a montage of various memories and people unfolds. People who at some time either left or arrived in Vienna involuntarily. (...) Lisl Ponger creates an imaginary map of the twentieth century on which the stories of emigration are engraved like well-worn tracks of occidental memory. The pictures, made by observant tourists, are revealed, in their tensile relationship to the soundtrack, as a post-colonial journey. (Christa Blümlinger)

Gustav Deutsch / Mariage Blanc
/ 1996 / 16 mm / 5’

Mariage Blanc in Morocco means a sham marriage between a Moroccan man and a European woman in order to obtain a residence permit and thereafter the citizenship of a European country. (...) In the last few years the authorities have taken special measures to prevent these sham marriages, including inspection of the joint household and separate questioning of the marriage partners about intimate details of the other partner. On their side, the marriage partners attempt to prepare themselves for these interviews by exchanging intimate personal details with each other. Many partners have, in fact, become very close because of this. The film was shot in three days in July of 1996 in the Hotel de Paris in Casablanca, Morocco. (Gustav Deutsch)

Siegfried A. Fruhauf / Exposed
/ 2001 / 16 mm / 9’

Translated literally “exposed” means “to make something visible” or “uncovered”. In photography it means to subject photographic film to light. “Exposed” uses short scene from a feature film - a man observes a dancing woman through a keyhole - is used as the raw material. Solely fragments of this tableau are visible to the viewer, and Fruhauf “re-exposes” the scene by passing the perforations of a strip of film in front of the projector so that they resemble a moving sieve.
(…) Together with the soundtrack (rising and falling white noise, drips and whispers), Fruhauf’s study on seeing and being seen, light and movement - in other words, cinema - has a nearly hypnotic effect. (Maya McKechneay)

Dietmar Brehm / Korridor
/ 1998 / 16 mm / 18’

At the end of 1996 in an old shop in Vienna specializing in film materials I found a tin with indeterminable pieces of 16mm film showing much wear and tear. They dated from the late 60s. (...) The found footage material was ideal for the horror series. I prepared the film for compilation using mirror projection and filmed myself in detailed structures through the light axis. (...) The first version cut showed the bodies in a state which was too excited and then I began to structure the film with black frame sequences of varying lengths. (...) I concentrated the lens on a very narrow view and allowed the horde of found-footage actors to react with each others. I wanted to construct an insidious / traumatic phenomenon in which the head and body glide through the picture again and again and are extinguished in the black frames... (Dietmar Brehm)

Martin Arnold / Alone. Life Wastes Andy Hardy
/ 1998 / 16 mm / 15’

In his film “Alone. Life Wastes Andy Hardy” which, together with “piece touchée” and “passage a l’acte” forms a sort of trilogy of compulsive repetition, Arnold’s campaign of deconstruction of classic Hollywood film codes finally turns to film music. (...) The family scenes, which in the original last only seconds and are not particularly notable, are surgically sectioned into single frames. Using repetition of these "single cells" and a new rhythm - a kind of cloning procedure - Arnold then creates an inflated, monstrous doppelgänger of the original cuts lasting many minutes. The hidden message of sex and violence is turned inside out to the point where it simply crackles. In “Alone.” the crossing of three harmless teenager films gives birth to an Oedipal drama in which not only mother love mutates to sheer lust. Since “passage a l’acte”, and contrary to other found-footage filmmakers who choose to remove their work into the realms of silent nostalgia, Arnold has re-worked the sound track along with the image. Because of what one hears in “Alone.” is the eerie, rasping "silence" of sound film, pregnant with suppressed tension. And exactly at the point where the illusion of full, living present is seemingly at its strongest - in the screen presence of Judy Garland singing - one senses the machine, and, implicitly, death, at work. (Dirk Schäfer)

AudioVisions - New Videos and Sound from Austria
/ 1998-2000/ 62'/ 22th of May

o.T. / Michaela Grill, Takeshi Fumimoto
/ 1999 / 5’

Michaela Grill’s visual work makes use of a concrete wall as the smallest identifiable element of urban music culture. The visual organization of this barely recognizable representational surface is translated through Takeshi Fumimoto’s musical structure. The images illustrate neither the tone nor the rhythm; they follow the logic of the acoustic blueprint to create new forms of hearing through the processing of the found sounds. (Christa Benzer)

Unterwerk / Dariusz Krzeczek
/ 2000 / 2’

Superimposed horizontal and vertical patterns in rich, dark colours flow across the screen at pleasantly slow tempos. In contrast to the video's meditative effect, these abstractly floating visual sensations were created with footage showing speed. (Norbert Pfaffenbichler)

Santora / Jürgen Moritz, Norbert Pfaffenbichler
/ 1998 / 4’

“Santora” is a metrically built cord of images based on the number 3 and the music of Fennesz. (J. Moritz / N. Pfaffenbichler)

_relifted / tinhoko
/ 2000 / 7’

“_relifted” has been made in the form of a triptych, though solely portions of the side panels are visible on the edge of the picture and refer to something off camera. Shadowy signs, structures and figures bathed in warm skin tones are visible. (Norbert Pfaffenbichler)

notdef./version one / maia/notdef
/ 2000 / 4’

In “notdef./version one”, virtual objects vigorously grow across a plane and into space from the center of the image for slightly longer than three minutes; nervously assembling and then falling away from one another, they overlap in glaringly bright colors before sinking back into the black matrix. (Stefan Grissemann)

Instrument / Jürgen Moritz
/ 1997 / 5’

“Instrument” is reminiscent of found footage shot a long time ago: six seconds of a girl moving. Moritz calls this: six seconds of innocence. He manipulated the material until only fragments of this innocence remained. To the pumping rhythm of the music the girl is simultaneously present and absent, but never really present. Moritz makes her intangible und thus creates space for one's own phantasy. (Lies Holtrop)

comp.tot4/romutation / reMI
/ 1999 / 16’

The project can be considered an intermedia piece, as it works between and with the established forms of film and music. In this area of semiotics the question of equivalence is posed in addition to reflections on signs, symbols and icons. With narrative music, combinations of harmonies would produce a relationship to narrative film which is only nearly equivalent. (Thom Ballhausen)

Overfart / Ben Pointeker / A/DK
/ 1999 / 6’

“Overfart”was inspired by the filmmaker‘s interest in early Romantic landscape painting, especially the works of C. D. Friedrich. (...) The abstract spatiality of the music, which was apparently set in contrast to the images, and their cycles complement one another to produce the same intangibility. (Ben Pointeker)

traxdata / Jürgen Moritz, Norbert Pfaffenbichler
/ 1998 / 4’

A fascinating videoclip - fascinating for those familiar with the potential energy and beauty held in minimalism. A dialogue between images and music whereby the rhythm is concentrating on the material structure of the image. (Transmediale 99, Berlin)

<rewind> / n:ja
/ 2000 / 5’

The basis or inspiration for the video “<rewind>” was the musical work “Rückenwind” by shabotinski [†(b)ypass:(k)ill†]. In contrast to commercial music videos, in which the visual level is (...) presented as a visual component of the music, the intention in “<rewind>” was to use the music itself for a visual interpretation of the images. The ultimate goal was to create a symbiotic relationship between the audio and visual material. [n:ja]

Aus / Skot
/ 1998 / 4’

Skot creates a caleidoscope of the world of moving images out of different clips. Through irritations and super-impositions they present the manipulability and fragility of the film material. (Brigitta Burger-Utzer)

o.T. / Michaela Grill, Takeshi Fumimoto
/ 1999 / 5’

Vizualni rad Michaele Grill počiva na betonskom zidu kao najmanjem prepoznatljivom elementu urbane glazbene kulture. Vizualna organizacija te jedva prepoznatljive površine prevedena je preko Fumimotove glazbene strukture. Slike ne prikazuju ton i ritam, već slijede logiku akustičkih tragova kako bi stvorile nove oblike slušnosti preko procesiranja “pronađenih zvukova”. (Christa Benzer)

Unterwerk / Dariusz Krzeczek
/ 2000 / 2’

Horizontalni i okomiti uzorci gustih tamnih boja prolaze preko ekrana u ugodnom polaganom ritmu. Suprotno meditativnome dojmu rada, ti apstraktni plutajući vizualni podražaji nastali su od materijala na kojima se vidi brzina. (Norbert Pfaffenbichler)

Santora / Jürgen Moritz, Norbert Pfaffenbichler
/ 1998 / 4’

“Santora” je metrički složen niz slika temeljen na broju 3 i na Fenneszovoj glazbi. (J. Moritz / N. Pfaffenbichler)

_relifted / tinhoko
/ 2000 / 7’

“_relifted” je napravljen kao triptih iako su samo pojedini dijelovi snimaka sa strane vidljivi na rubu slike, referirajući na nešto izvan kamere. Vide se znakovi u sjeni, strukture i oblici okupani toplim bojama kože. (Norbert Pfaffenbichler)

notdef./version one / maia/notdef
/ 2000 / 4’

U radu “notdef./version one” virtualni objekti dulje od 3 minute energično rastu iz središta slike u prostor. Nervozno se sastavljajući i rastavljajući, objekti se preklapaju čineći sjajne boje prije nego što potonu u crno ništavilo. (Stefan Grissemann)

Instrument / Jürgen Moritz
/ 1997 / 5’

“Instrument” nalikuje na davno snimljen found footage prikazujući 6 sekundi djevojke u pokretu. Autor ih naziva 6 sekundi nevinosti. Moritz je manipulirao materijalom dok nisu ostali samo fragmenti nevinosti. Djevojka je istodobno prisutna i odsutna, ali nikada zapravo tu. Moritz je čini neopipljivom, stvarajući prostor za osobne fantazije. (Lies Holtrop)

comp.tot4/romutation / reMI
/ 1999 / 16’

Ovaj se projekt može smatrati intermedijalnim radom, jer funkcionira sa ustanovljenim filmskim i glazbenim oblicima i među njima. U tom području semiotike, uz razmišljanje o znakovima, simbolima i ikonama, postavlja se pitanje istovrijednosti. Kombinacije harmonije proizvest će s narativnom glazbom odnos prema igranom filmu, koji je tek približno istovrijedan. (Thom Ballhausen)

Overfart / Ben Pointeker / A/DK
/ 1999 / 6’

“Overfart” je inspiriran redateljevim zanimanjem za ranoromantičarsko pejzažno slikarstvo, a posebice za radove C. D. Friedricha. (…) Apstraktna prostornost glazbe suprotstavljena je slikama i njihovi se ciklusi međusobno nadopunjavanju proizvodeći jednaku neopipljivost. (Ben Pointeker)

traxdata / Jürgen Moritz, Norbert Pfaffenbichler
/ 1998 / 4’

Fascinantan video za sve koji su upoznati s potencijalnom energijom i ljepotom minimalizma. Dijalog između slika i glazbe u kojem se ritam koncentrira na materijalnu strukturu slike. (Transmediale 99, Berlin)

<rewind> / n:ja
/ 2000 / 5’

Osnova ili inspiracija za video “<rewind>” bila je glazba “Rückenwind” autora shabotinskog [†(b)ypass:(k)ill†]. Suprotno od komercijalnih glazbenih spotova u kojima je slika prikazana kao vizualni dio glazbe, namjera ovog rada je korištenje glazbe za vizualnu “interpretaciju” slike. Krajnji je cilj bio stvoriti simbiozu između audio i vizualnog materijala. [n:ja]

Aus / Skot
/ 1998 / 4’

Skot stvara kaleidoskop različitih pokretnih slika. Preko iritacije i preklapanja one prikazuju podatnost i krhkost filmskog materijala. (Brigitta Burger-Utzer)

Daydream Nation
/2000-2007 / 67’ / 5th of June 2007

A far cry from the beloved Saturday cartoons of mornings past, Daydream Nation’s roster of animated video offers a vision of Sweden all grown-up, bringing unorthodox and often unsettling imagery to life. Taboo intimacies, couples on the brink, lonely mopers, and more than a few decapitation and dismemberment scenes find themselves juxtaposed against the nicer things in life: colorful origami, toy cars, dancing ladies with parasols, horses, and pretty blonde party girls. So is Sweden, then, a nation of dreamers? Well, this program, featuring vibrant work from the cosmopolitan streets of Stockholm, the up-and-coming communities of arty Göteborg, the maritime landscape of southernmost Malmö, and various expatriate outposts, dares to suggest so.
