This year’s Art and Experiment programme assembles some of the most intriguing filmmakers who are currently working in the field of tension between film and art. At the beginning, Gustaf Broms asks in “Perforated Realities” how the Covid-19 virus could shake the foundation of an idea of civilisation. Katrin Winkler uses private footage of missionaries who accompanied colonisations in Africa to address the question of how the colouring came about and how it is shaped by power structures through different colonising actors.
Five works from the German Competition 2022 that deal primarily with the topics of work, migration and communication. In her trenchant “Muss ja nicht sein, dass es heute ist”, Sophia Groening shows the reality of life for young adults in Cologne-Finkenberg in a very unembellished way. Susann Maria Hempel asks herself in “Die Hüter des Unrats. Eine kurze Geschichte des Abfalls”, what it means for the reconstruction of human history if, thanks to a consistent recycling economy, no more waste is produced in the future. In the documentary “Las Flores”, Miguel Goya and Tina Wilke follow a group of young migrants in Berlin. Between selfies and fleeting voice messages emerges the fate of a youth who migrated to Europe in search of a better future.
