MindFrames FilmFestival
Fri, February 23, 2007 – Sun, February 25, 2007, Festival

In the 1970s and 1980s, the Department of Media Study at the State University of New York at Buffalo grew to become one of the most important media centers in the world. Under the direction of Gerald O’Grady, the teaching staff included Hollis Frampton, Paul Sharits, James Blue, Tony Conrad, Steina and Woody Vasulka, and Peter Weibel.

The exhibition will offer the first comprehensive insight into this groundbreaking art of the 1970s and 1980s, which was so decisive for media art’s further development and whose style remains influential today. The entire horizon of aesthetic issues and solutions that came along with the introduction of the technical image into art becomes available based on the example of the represented artists and their individual positions.

Accompanying the exhibition ZKM will organize a weekend film festival with works by the participating artists.
