bi'bakwerk works with innovative site specific education concepts, which aim at an equal participation and the exchange of ideas, knowledge and creativity. Our workshops are cross-generational and focus on issues arising from the immediate neighborhood.
Cinema, whether analogue or digital, historical or brand new, is undeniably part of social reality. Yet, it is only as political, as conservative, as progressive as those who shape the films, the venues, and ultimately the film industry itself. To approach cinema critically, we therefore need to look at its films and images that already exist. This can mean altering the images, placing them in a new context or even sabotaging them.
In the "Experiment: Film" workshop, we therefore invite you to join us in questioning internationally popular images of US cinema in a practical way. We want to take a closer look at blockbuster films of the past decades by looking at their trailers on analogue film reels, by playing with them, editing them, and changing their form. With scratching tools, paint, and adhesive tape we want to probe and poke, to scrutinize and dissect. Using this found film material, completely new short films will ultimately be created. "Experiment: Film" is aimed at all those who perceive images as political. No previous knowledge of analogue film is required.
Workshop times: Friday: 20:00 - 23:00, Saturday & Sunday 11:00 - 18:00.
