Roee Rosen to lead the Oberhausen Seminar 2018
Moving images in contemporary art, 3-7 May
Applications are now accepted for the 2018 Oberhausen Seminar, which will take place during the 64th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen from 3 to 7 May, led by artist and filmmaker Roee Rosen (Israel). The Seminar is an experimental course designed to explore contemporary artists’ moving image practice in the context of a renowned international film festival. It addresses young international artists, filmmakers, curators, and researchers who will use the Festival as a laboratory to discuss ideas in the curation of moving images, the infrastructures that allow them to circulate and the critical frames used to analyse them. Applications will be accepted until 1 February 2018.
The Seminar leader:
Roee Rosen is an artist, writer and filmmaker (Live and Die as Eva Braun, documenta 14). 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.
The partners of the Festival:
LUX is a public arts agency based in London and Glasgow that exists to support and promote artists' moving image work, through distribution, exhibition, education, publishing and research.
The annual Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, founded in 1955, provides media makers, users, teachers and students an opportunity to confront the core of the creative process, reaffirm the freedom of the independent artist to explore beyond known limits and renew the challenge to discover.
