Drift and Dwell: Film and Video
Directors Lounge Monthly Screening
Thursday, 26 July 2012
Caroline Koebel works with a broad range of media and film expressions, bringing together many influences, super-8 experiences, punk, Vaudeville, the vivid Californian avant-garde scene around Craig Baldwin and his Other Cinema screenings, and conceptual references to Valie Export. If trying to trace back the film tradition she is drawing on, it would possibly be the subversive media practice that Amos Vogel started with Cinema 16 in New York from 1947 to 1963, a practice that was most interested in the discourse of different fields of cinema.
Caroline Koebel uses a number of styles and tries to create a dialog between analog and digital, handprocessed found footage meets digital camera and editing, political involvement comes together with poetic film. The program comprises earlier and new work of the artist, and different themes and styles, in the range from poetic film to experimental essay. Caroline Koebel, who is also a critical film writer, curator and an educator at Transart Institute will be present for questions and answers.
