Partners of the cooperation are Department 9, University of Bremen / Workgroup Film and Media Aesthetics as well as the Communal Cinema / CITY 46. Shows are open to anyone interested, either on a continuous basis or for singular programmes.

School of Vision

The seminar focusses on fundamental aspects of filmaesthetics. Referencing film stills and excerpts from film history the seminar tries to uncover what film and what cinema is.

Resonances - every contact leaves a trace

20:00: film:art 98 at CITY 46, Bremen

»Every contact leaves a trace« is a sentence from forensic science which seems not only to be relevant in murder cases but also in all sorts of interpersonal, artistic or medial contexts. The programme investigates different forms of resonance in various contexts and formats reaching from animation film and performance documentation, over classical experimental and contemporary videoessay to video created by use of artificial intelligence.

in cooperation with BBK (Berufsverband Bildender Künstler*innen Bremen) on the occasion of the exhibition resonance.interventions in the collection at Kunsthalle Bremen. 
with the friendly assistance of Sparkasse Bremen.
