BERLIN MOTION

The workshop explores the notions of registration, representation and transformation of architectural space through motion media such as film/video and digital animation techniques. Students will design architectural installations for specific locations throughout central Berlin. The installations will serve as media performance places/spaces that address the potential of integrating informal public cinema into urban space.

The workshop has been initiated by Wolf D. Prix and conducted by Niels Jonkhans, Reiner Zettl, Sophie Grell and Jens Mehlan from the Angewandte in Vienna. International guests and speakers will include Hanns Zischler, Gregor Eichinger, Jan and Tim Edler, Lukas Feireiss and others. Selected students of Architecture from Berlin, Vienna, Mexico City, Delft and Madrid have participated.

The work has been presented to an international jury of architects and film makers on saturday, 20.02.2010 at 2:00pm at the AEDES NETWORK CAMPUS, Pfefferberg, Christinenstrasse 18-19.

THURSDAY TALK: HANNS ZISCHLER

On Thursday, 18.02.2010, the workshop participants presented their movies (the result of the first task) to Hanns Zischler, the prominent German actor/writer/essayist. Hanns Zischler provided well-focussed feedback on the film’s narratives, outlining issues of focus, editing, dubbing and more.

In the open discussion on the general topic of “future cinemas” and their implications for public (city) life Hanns Zischler outlined the importance of “uncommercialised” public space as the most essential component of public or urban life – space that is freed from the dictate of consumation per se.

He described going to a the movies as entering a parallel, dream-like world. The cinema building is the interface between this world and the other, the dream-like.
