Film as Experiment. Experimental and avant garde film by women – Insights into a special collection

lecture, talk and film presentations by Prof. Dr. Annette Brauerhoch

The German Federal Archive for Experimental and Avant Garde Films by Women at the University of Paderborn is a small, special collection with films by women primarily from the 1980s: a time without mobile phones, private televisions, and personal computers. A high time of intensive filmic experiments. Students at film schools explored film language and female sexuality as well as the everyday and spaces of power. The archive shows female interventions in male spaces of vision and action and presents the confrontation with film aesthetics and history. The films await a reassessment. What aesthetic possibilities did they develop before any digital technology? Which role does analog filmic material play for the “experiments”? And why did experimental film in particular prove to be a self-empowering artistic medium for women? With regard to the context in which the event takes place — the “experienceable archive” of alpha nova & galerie futura – the potentials and limitations of an archive of this kind, its motive and future, will be discussed.
