LandscapeVideo Elective and Thesis Elective SS 2013

Investigating the landscape element Belvedere in the city.

The elective course (Wahlfach) and the thesis (Wahlfacharbeit) of the coming term will examine the “Belvedere” as element of the urban landscape. With the creation of the Belvedere man demonstrates an intentional act to visit a place with a specific scenic view. Within this act not only the view is of importance but the journey towards. How can we summon and translate the things we hear, see, smell and feel – in brief our aesthetic experience – in a filmic montage?

GOAL

In our video course, we are going to investigate the urban space . By posting your work and thoughts on a video blog we will then constantly reflect about the means of perception and its transformation through media.

The video elective course (Wahlfach) and the thesis (Wahlfacharbeit) are combined and can not be enrolled separately.

We are going to give two workshops of 4 days over a weekend and 10 days during the semester break and there will be 3 small exercises and lectures during the semester.

The participation on all dates of the course is mandatory. Limited admission of 16 students (8 groups) due to technical equipment.
