From 1 to 6 May, the Short Film Festival 2019 organizes the sixth Oberhausen Seminar together with LUX (London) and the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar (New York).
The Oberhausen Seminar is an experimental course that examines the moving image in contemporary art in the context of a renowned international film festival. International actors from various fields - artists and filmmakers, curators and scientists - use the Short Film Festival as a laboratory in which curatorial preconditions, infrastructures in which these moving images circulate, and the critical parameters according to which they are analyzed are questioned. The seminar will be held in English.
The seminar leaders 2019:
Aleksandra Sekulić is programme director at the Center for Cultural Decontamination (CZKD) in Belgrade and a member of Media Archaeology and the Kosmoplovci collective.
Branka Bencić is co-founder and artistic director of Apoteka - Space for Contemporary Art, curator of the Artists Cinema program series at the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb and founder and curator of the Cinemaniac Think Film programme of the Pula Film Festival.
