Eye on Art Research Labs: KABK "Cinema as a Dream"
Eye on Art's Research Labs provide scope for a new generation of curators and artists to hone their skills. Students from different art academies and universities are asked to put together a programme featuring their own work and films (including remixes) from Eye’s collection. Research Labs do not follow a strict format and often result in a cultural crossover between film and other art forms.
The best-curated programme and the best work will be awarded by a student jury and a jury of Eye film professionals.
cinema as a dream
Dreams are a way of looking into the subconscious mind. Filmmakers like Dali, Buñuel, Gioli and Burroughs explored the theme of dreams for many years, opening up new frontiers by pioneering the genre of surrealism.
Their work was our starting point to investigate the contemporary theme of dreams. Each film explores this through the unique approach of the filmmakers. We embrace the absurdity of dreams to translate them into an experimental and nonlinear structure in the film language.
We employed different kinds of styles, perspectives, and backgrounds of inspiration: our international group of 20 filmmakers consist of students from fine arts, graphic design, photography, interactive media design, interior architecture and art science. Dreams open the door to subconscious perception and we now invite you to step into a different dream state.
