Artistic Strategies in Abstract Austrian Animation
October 21, 2016 | 10:30h
ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie
Karlsruhe · Germany

This masterclass provides a historical and conceptual context to study the realm of abstract animation produced in Austria, and the role that ASIFA has played as promoter of this type of artwork, illustrating with excerpts from various works.

Coming from a background in fine arts, and active as an experimental filmmaker, curator, researcher and professor, Holger Lang will also discuss his own approach to abstract film, both in his research and practice, discussing the creative process behind them.

The masterclass also includes a practical example for the attendants to experience the process of working with abstraction.
