Ingeborg Fülepp [HR] – The history of artistic usage of errors in film, video and digital techniques
The twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first can be labeled as a century of media art. Not only filmmakers, but also painters, sculptors, graphic artists, architects, stage designers and many others have been experimenting with media technologies since its very beginning.
This lecture will present a brief historical review of the use of media technology imperfections as an artistic expression.
By using the example of Media in Motion Berlin-Zagreb GbR (Ingeborg Fülepp and Heiko Daxl, 1990 to 2012) video production, the lecture will present a multiplicity of artistic image editing approaches, which were realized by a symbiosis of analogue film, video and digital errors in specific video works.
At the end of the lecture, visitors will be able to see a selection of the best works of Media in Motion art production.
