INDEX-DVD

NEW RELEASES !!!!

INDEX-DVD Nr.47: “Dietmar Brehm orchestrates implosions and idling states. He could be seen as the representative of a telephone-game art movement: His work is post avant-garde, post-narrative, post-surreal, post-pornographic and post-psychoanalytic; it appears like an extra entry in the annals of a long since shelved cultural history, like a last ditch effort of art after the end of time.
(Stefan Grissemann)
Watch out for it !

INDEX-DVD Nr.48: Peter Tscherkassky – Exquisite Ecstasies
No matter how various the imagery of Blood-Letting, Film of Love, Holiday Film, tabula rasa or The Exquisite Corpus, each of these films crystalizes an essential impulse at the heart of my entire artistic work: to expose the utterly distinct nature of analog film in all its unique beauty, a potential and vision neither available nor transferrable to any other medium. (Peter Tscherkassky)
Watch out for it !

EMAF-Award for IMPERIAL VALLEY by Lukas Marxt

we are happy about the news, that Lukas Marxt received the EMAF Media Art Award of the German Film Critics for his latest short Imperial Valley at Osnabrueck´s European Media Award Festival. Congratulations !
from the jury statement: Lukas Marxt used a recording technology, originally developed for military surveillance flights, to shed light on these dramatic circumstances. He makes us flabbergasted by the concrete form of industrial food production, which is systematically destroying our natural resources. He succeeds in doing something that is a high goal for many who work with visual media: to make the invisible visible.
