EXTRA KINO is a projection space and moving picture theater, in which the meanwhile narrow boundary between media art, installation and cinema screening is probed.
The Concept by the film artist Siegfried A. Fruhauf brings elements of cinema, such as light, shadow, movement, but also film into the space, filling it with two program tracks focusing on works with moving cameras from the 1920s up to experimental film. Even the pauses become a play of light, turning the ascent into part of the illusion-machine of the cinema. The freely hanging screen is the platform from which the filmic image can take off.

Curators: Siegfried A. Fruhauf and Genoveva Rückert

EXTRA KINO programme overview

Bernd Oppl’s installation emptiness of attention, 2012 marks the entrance to this year’s EXTRA KINO. The first film studio, Black Maria by Thomas Alva Edison, was a rotatable, simple black box, where the top could be opened up to allow as much sunlight as possible to reach the light-sensitive film material. In his installation, Bernd Oppl refers to Buster Keaton’s short film One Week, 1920, where it was already possible to rotate a prefabricated house. The camera on the inside of the installation transmits the inside of the rotating model into the exhibition space.

PROGRAMME 1 - Travel Logs and Rotations

A journey is, not least of all, the experience of moving oneself in, around and through space. Phenomena of spatial perception are experienced through a camera eye no longer bound to human movements. The mobile camera becomes a means of conquering space, which is always also bound to time.

PROGRAMME 2 - Phantom Rides

Experiencing the world in a literal sense: the first tracking shots were created by mounting the camera on trains or ships. Camera techniques today allow for the most adventurous perspectives. What is alluring about them, however, is still based on a fascination like that triggered by a camera movement in the early days of film.
