Fence Sharpening in Dunkeldeutschland

A selection of film productions of the European Media Artists in Residence Exchange (EMARE) Program and Werkleitz – Center for Media Art Saxony-Anhalt presented by Peter Zorn, Manager of the European Media Art Platform /

This program compiles a selection of works which have been supported or co-produced by the European Media Artists in Residence Exchange (EMARE) of the European Media Art Platform (EMAP) and Werkleitz Professional Media Master Class (PMMC) dealing with this year’s videonale’s topic Refractioned Realities in both meanings, the figurative sense, examining our perception of our surroundings and landscapes like in Dunkeldeutschland by Stefanie Schröder and Juliane Jaschnow (D 2013), our society like Leopold Kessler does in Zaun Schärfen (Fence Sharpening) (D 2010), our You Tube media channels and the way we reflect on ISIS propaganda like Chloé Galibert-Laîné and Kevin B. Lee elaborate in Bottled Songs 3 & 4, the vanishing of things or even nations like Doug Fishbone in Artificial Intelligence (D/UK 2018) or in the optical sense, how light waves alter course, changing the way we perceive the objects it illuminates in the process like in Florian Fischer’s and Johannes Krell’s newest work which has been just awarded the Golden Bear of the Berlinale: Umbra (D 2019).
