Heiko Daxl has always been fascinated by motion. Images in motion, media in motion, and, like the center of his interest, he himself has always been in motion. Constantly creating new films, triggering projects, curating and cooperating throughout the world.
It would need a big book to cover all his activities, from the co-founding of the Experimental Film Workshop Osnabrueck back in 1980, an annual festival for experimental film art, which in 1988 became the European Media Art Festival, to this year´s exhibition at his latest art space, mim-and-more.
He, together with his wife and partner, Ingeborg Fuelepp, was always searching for new experiments, joyfully presenting their latest discoveries.
Friends of Directors Lounge will remember many films and curated programs by this Dream Team. Since our early years they have been regulars till today.
Heiko Daxl passed away last Monday.
He will remain among us, frolicking in an art world that wouldn’t be the same without him.
