Loop "Film Art": Cooperation at the Leipzig Book Fair
The University Mozarteum Salzburg has successfully cooperated with the Leipzig Book Fair (27-30 April 2023), which this year focused on Austria as the guest country under the motto "meaoiswiamia". The cooperation focused on two of the main film themes curated by Thomas Ballhausen.
In the short film show "PRESTO", the short feature film "Nachts" (Claudia Lehmann & Konrad Hempel) was shown, thus positively communicating the artistic research project Spot On MozART in parallel; the film loop "FILMKUNST" showed works by students of the Department of Scenography (Carla Schwering, Jiale Zhu, Stephanie Därr, Wanda Iwaszkiewicz) and was thus able to successfully present exceptional up-and-coming positions. The film focal points, which were shown at the renowned Schaubühne Lindenfels, were very well received by the audience and the media and allowed a unique visibility of artistic works from the Mozarteum in the programme of one of the most important international book fairs.
The history of Austrian literature and the medium of film are connected in many ways - whether in the form of shared aesthetic strategies, overarching references or, indeed, through the numerous adaptations of renowned works. The loop "Film Art", focused on the lyrical and atmospheric aspects of the encounter between the arts.
Production by students of the Department of Scenography:
- "In Nomine Ludi" (2022, Carla Schwering).
- "A Hamlet Machine" (2022, Jiale Zhu)
- "Lockdown" (2020, Stephanie Därr)
- "The Needle And The Damage Done" (2023, Wanda Iwaszkiewicz)
