Event Description:

This event is combining the inspiring opportunities of an academic conference with the possibilities of a film festival. Since 2011 we are transcending conceptual boundaries to connect international and local artists, scholars, researchers, communicators, and distributors. Embracing fine-arts and creative enterprises. We invite you to come together to exchange, communicate, network and enjoy stimulating art/work/research/people.

The topic of UNDER_the_RADAR_2019 is “REAL TIME IDENTITY”

This covers conceptual, theoretical, artistic and practical approaches, experiences and discussions of rather abstract terms like “time”, “reality”, ”existence”, “memory”, “identity”, “interpretation”, “anticipation”, “integrity”, “authenticity”, “factuality”, “heritage”, “community”, “projection”, “distortion” - and connected or related notions.
The connection - even in a comprehensive and open understanding - to animation and experimental media art should be clearly recognizable. Our subheading:
How the interaction with our image of the past and our ideas of the future shape the work in film, media, art, and connected hybrids at our current moment. - points out our interest in submissions that combine academic analysis and research with real-world applications and uses. A connection to documenting or documentary type (or related) work is possible and also the (re-)interpretation of historical artifacts, work, or activities.
