Forthcoming screenings of Ergin Cavusoglu's And I Awoke

In April and May 2013, Ergin Cavusoglu's video And I Awoke (2012) will be screened at two film festivals in Germany: KINO DER KUNST and Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen.

KINO DER KUNST will run from 24 to 28 April in Munich.

The event is designed to be an exhibition and a film festival in one, creating a showcase for today’s trends in art and an international meeting point for artists, curators and the public. Spread across various locations, such as the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF), the Pinakothek der Moderne / Schaustelle, the Museum Brandhorst in the Kunstareal and beyond that the ARRI cinema, the Academy of Fine Arts, the Kunstverein Munich, the MaximliansForum, the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts and the Goetz Collection, it will feature a competition with generous prizes, a retrospective program of feature-length films by artists ranging from Rebecca Horn and Eija-Liisa Ahtila to Steve McQueen or Julian Schnabel, a wide range of works from specific geographical regions and a number of museum-based multi-channel installations, all aimed at examining the current relationship between cinema and art. The quest of contemporary artists for a globally comprehensible language of the moving image is playing an increasingly important role here – will the cinema of the future find its home in the museum?

The International Short Film Festival Oberhausen will run from 2 - 7 May and And I Awoke (2012) will be shown as part of the SALT selection.

SALT explores critical and timely issues in visual and material culture, and cultivates innovative programs for research and experimental thinking. Assuming an open attitude and establishing itself as a site of learning and debate SALT aims to challenge, excite and provoke its visitors by encouraging them to offer critique and response.

SALT Research sources diverse fields of knowledge and provides outlets for thought within the fissures and crossovers of different disciplines. The institution’s research projects expand beyond linear chronologies, medium-based questions, and the traditional separation of fields of study. SALT assembles archives of recent art, architecture, design, urbanism, and social and economic histories, making them available for research and public use. These resources are interpreted in the form of exhibitions and discussed in all other areas of programming.
