ANIMATION BEYOND CINEMA
Animated film has long been one of the most important arenas where modern art meets cinema. Since the 1920s, animated films have been made by visual artists from the avant-garde cinema circles. The accessibility of new technologies pushed younger generations of visual artists towards animation. Nowadays, shoestring budget productions in the spirit of DIY find their way onto the art market, bypassing screening rooms and distribution networks. The works presented in this section do away with standard feature-centered approaches to filmmaking in order to experiment with form and language.
