Report: Notes from Reality
European Media Arts Festival
Osnabrück, 18 April – 7 July 2018
Artistic reports and images open up new confrontations with reality and holds the potential to take over, transform or even refute journalistic forms. The European Media Arts Festival’s 2018 theme, “Report – Notes from Reality” deals with artists’ growing interest in documentary and journalistic working styles which provokes questions: How do artists conduct their research? What new perspectives emerge when world events are viewed from an artistic perspective? How can we “really” tell about reality? And how can media art intervene in the event of political crises?
The main exhibition in Kunsthalle, Osnabrück, featured Forensic Architecture’s Air Strike Atimah documentary and the corresponding Bomb Cloud Atlas series.
