TALK mit Ulrike Rosenbach
Sonntag, 27.01.2019, Kunsthaus nrw, Kornelismünster, Aachen














This Year (2018) I curated together with Alfred Rotermann the conference for the Film- and Mediafestival in Osnabrück from may, 18 –22. 2018
It was a very cooperative experience to be the part of the Festival Team, cross-over-work and brainstorming the festival motto and advisoring and supporting the exhibition.

Aesthetic Strategies as Image Policy
With Korpys/Löffler and Alex Gerbaulet; Moderation by Sabine Maria Schmidt
Sat. 21/04, 13:30 ⟼ Kunsthalle Osnabrück

Since the beginning of their collaboration Korpys/
Löffler have been concerned with the methods
of modern surveillance, the secret work and the
official representations of state and institutional
power. In addition, the artists explain central
working principles using the example of recent
film research at the G20 – Summit in Hamburg.
In her artistic work, Alex Gerbaulet explores the
representability of reality and memory, using both
documentary and fictionalizing methods. Her film
“Tiefenschärfe”, realised together with Mareike
Bernien, was in the film programme.
