Part 1: »poetry/film«

A project from the KHM Cologne and the Kunststiftung NRW. As a celebration of the 25th anniversary of its foundation, the Kunststiftung NRW has invited the Academy of Media Arts Cologne to take on texts by young poets from NRW in artistically free film adaptations.
In the seminar series »poetry?/?film«, led by Andreas Altenhoff, Thomas Bauermeister, Sonja Hofmann, and Sophie Maintigneux, eleven film versions of selected poems have been produced since Autumn 2013.

Part 2: »Liminal Spaces. Words and Images«

Students from the Design Faculty of the University of Applied Sciences, Düsseldorf, under the direction of Reiner Nachtwey, developed short, filmic miniatures to poems that they selected by Jürgen Nendza: video animations, stop-motion films, photo films as well as 2D animation. Dubbed with poetic readings by Jürgen Nendza, moving images appear, transforming his speech and his words into their own imagistic worlds.

With kind support from the Kultursekretariat Wuppertal.
