Event Details

Karlstad, Cinema Arenan
Thimar/Westling Gallery

The theme of the 11th edition of AVANT is Found and Excavated. Films, videos and live performances based on re-edited found footage, or films that have been going through processes of decay and destruction, film that is in constant transformation, aesthetically or politically.

Friday evening begins with a selection of films by the German collective Schmelzdahin and continues with a live performance of the film Materia Obscura, made by the film alchemist and former Schmelzdahin member Jürgen Reble and with live music by the multimedia artist Thomas Köner.

Saturday opens with four films by Mathias Müller and Christoph Girardet who have excavated new stories from well-known movies by re-editing and assembling them anew. After this follows a complete retrospective of the films by Schmelzdahin and a screening of Wolfgang Lehmann’s one hour long intense flickering journey into the fantastic world of nature documentaries. Saturday concludes with two programmes: The Spanish artist Maria Cañas’ political collages and a unique program with Soviet and Russian found footage film, curated by Masha Godovannya.

During AVANT a selection of Maria Cañas’ videos will be exhibited in THIMAR/WESTLING GALLERY.

The filmmakers and the artists are present during the screenings.

AVANT has been organized since 2002 and the 11th edition is arranged by Världsalltet and Film Studies at Karlstad University. “Found and Excavated” is sponsored by Karlstad University, Karlstad Municipality, Region Värmland and the Goethe-Institute.
