DOKUARTS 11 - Unformatiert / Beyond Format showcases through its program the memory of the arts and their significance for the present. Our project offers filmmakers, scholars, and artists a platform to engage in a mutually stimulating dialog about genre-specific films as well as about current art discourses.
The international exhibition of cinematic work presents 24 new films about art, coming from 16 different countries. 12 of the films are contributed by female filmmakers. All films are shown in Berlin for the first time, most of them as German premiere. Nearly all filmmakers will be present to introduce their films.
In conjunction with the European Month of Photography, we will feature 6 films on the art of photography. European and German premieres over the course of a single weekend, October 12-14, and the presence of photographers Harry Gruyaert and Daniel Schwartz are amongst the highlights of the festival.
This year’s symposium takes place in cooperation with the European Documentary Network and will discuss the historical, present and continuing formatization of media and culture as well as the interrelations between conditions of production, aesthetics, and politics in the context of films on art and future prospects of the unformatted documentary film.
The participation in the symposium is free of charge. Detailed information about topics and guest speakers can be found on the respective site. Registration is required: firstname.lastname@example.org
