Public seminar with Florian Schneider and interventions by Mikhail Lylov, Elke Marhöfer, Patrick Primavesi, Ute Holl and others.
The seminar addresses the question what constitutes a “pédagogie straubienne” as Serge Daney once coined it. Furthermore, what could be its significance in a post-digital age?
The screening, talk and workshop takes place in the context of the exhibition "Tell it to the Stones. The Work of Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub" in the Akademie der Künste/ADK in Berlin 14 September – 19 November 2017, curated by Annett Busch and Tobias Hering.
The Akademie der Künste is dedicating an extensive two-month programme cycle to the oeuvre of Danièle Huillet (1936-2006) and Jean-Marie Straub (*1933). Tell it to the Stones - The Work of Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub opens up new perspectives on the cinematic work of both filmmakers by placing the films in an interdisciplinary context: The two-month exhibition highlights their working method, relating it to current artistic positions.
