From 3 to 7 May, in conjunction with LUX (London) and the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar (New York), we held the Oberhausen Seminar for the fifth time during the 64th festival edition.
Further information on the Oberhausen Seminar 2018 can be found here.
The Seminar is an experimental course exploring contemporary artists’ moving image practice in the context of a renowned international film festival. It is a gathering that brings together filmmakers, critics and curators, using the Oberhausen Film Festival as a laboratory to discuss ideas in the curation, production and criticism of contemporary moving image media. With the festival as text and model to examine, the cohort will closely examine film and video works, the infrastructures that allow them to circulate, and the critical frames used to curate and analyze them.
The Seminar leader in 2018:
Roee Rosen is an artist, writer and filmmaker. His cinematic retrospective is forthcoming at Jeu de Paume, Paris, in November 2018. His latest book is “Live and Die as Eva Braun and Other Intimate Stories”. Rosen is a professor at HaMidrasha Faculty of the Arts and at the Bezalel Academy of Arts, Israel.
