Description

THE DREAM COLLECTOR

In the late 1960s, photographer Arthur Tress began asking children about their dreams and tried to depict them for his camera with the same children. The photographs cover various nightmares, from falling, from a tower to being buried alive to humiliation in the classroom as well as from physical limitations and claustrophobia. The implementation is rarely concrete, but simply evokes a mood or a memory. Inspired by this series of images, a series of films on the subject of "DAYMARES" will be shown in the course. Films and others by John Parker, Powell and Pressburger, Maya Deren and many more. 

The films are shown in the original language. ATTENTION: Some films also contain disturbing scenes.

At our first meeting we talk about video design in the theater. The film series will take place from the 2nd meeting. Afterwards there is the possibility for one-on-one discussions. At the end of the semester, a video clip should be created inspired by the film series. NOTE: The lecture will be held in German.
