Fruhauf enjoys emphasizing the raw, handmade, seemingly unfinished. Mountain Trip undertakes a virtual trip home, a journey through a series of postcards, moving across an increasingly surreal landscape: The traditional image of alpine Austria, re- and simultaneously deconstructed in the form of kitschy landscape photographs that have been strung together, is dismantled to the accompaniment of poisonous colors and aggressive music made by an overdriven accordion. (Stefan Grissemann)

Destruction and Fury - ->> @ sixpackfilm-vimeo


Als gestalterisches Mittel in der Kunst ist die Destruktion als Live-Aktion, als Akt der Abbildung von Zerstörung, als Attentat auf die schönen Künste oder als Integration von gefundenen, abgenutzten oder zerstörten Gegenständen noch sehr jung. Beinahe von Beginn an wurde die Filmkunst und das Expanded Cinema mitgedacht, vor allem wenn man an die Teilnehmer*innen des legendären Destruction in Art Symposions 1966 in London denkt. Das Filmprogramm versammelt Arbeiten, die aggressiv auf fremdes oder eigenes Filmmaterial einwirken: Lurf, Fruhauf, Sharits und Tscherkassky. Andere (Vrba, Ventzislavova, Schwentner und Walkowiak) drücken ihren Zorn zurückhaltender aus, landen aber dennoch klar ihren Angriff. (bbu)

Short Film Studies is a peer-reviewed journal designed to stimulate ongoing research on individual short films as a basis for a better understanding of the art form as a whole. In each issue, two short films will be selected for comprehensive study, with articles illuminating each film from a variety of perspectives.


This issue features the films Remembrance (Stephanie Morgenstern, Canada, 35 mm, 2001) and Blow-Up (Siegfried A. Fruhauf, Austria, 35 mm, 2000).
