DOUBLE FEATURE

For years, the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has served as a forum for national and international filmmakers and video artists. Under the heading "Double Feature," they present a work from their own oeuvre, followed by their favorite film. On the last Wednesday of every month and in conversation with the curators Katharina Dohm, Matthias Ulrich and guest curators, the invited artists provide extensive insight into their creative work, especially into their interest in film. Film and video works by over 70 artists have already been shown in the Schirn. In the interview, the filmmakers discuss their works as well as current trends in film and video art.

"Double Feature" sees itself as a platform for different tendencies and forms of expression in artistic film and video production.

DOUBLE FEATURE CONVERSATIONS

In the Double Feature Conversations, the international artists have their chance to speak and provide insight into their working process and their respective works or exhibitions.

The video works and conversations with previously participating artists such as Monira Al Qadiri, Alexandra Bachzetsis, Gerard Byrne, Pauline Curnier Jardin, Eli Cortiñas, Beatrice Gibson, Andrew Norman Wilson, Damir Očko, Mario Pfeifer, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Ani Schulze, Paul Spengemann, Pilvi Takala and Holly Zausner can be accessed via the Schirn's YouTube channel. With its editorial focus on Video Art, the Schirn Magazine also regularly offers discursive contributions to accompany the Double Feature series.
