Since 2014 we, in conjunction with LUX (London) and The Robert Flaherty Film Seminar (New York), are organising the Oberhausen Seminar, which will be held during the festival. The Oberhausen Seminar is designed for international practitioners who work with moving images.
The Oberhausen Seminar is an experimental course designed to explore contemporary artists’ moving image practice in the context of a renowned international film festival. International practitioners from various fields – artists and filmmakers, curators and researchers – will use our Festival as a laboratory to discuss ideas in the curation of contemporary moving image media, the infrastructures which allow them to circulate, and the critical frames used to analyse them.
Information on previous seminar editions can be found here:
For 2019 another edition of the seminar is planned.
