nummer vier: a taste of visuality (2016)

Films and texts are not alike. Nevertheless, there is a filmic practice formulating its own discursivity: research on images. Or: to research on images, one has to work with them. Essayistic techniques such as assemblage (Farocki) and genealogy (Anderson) as well as their according formats of experimental ethnography (Lucien Castaing-Taylor) are our decisive role models.
nummer_vier is organised as a network system: 16 public screenings, 2 film makers, 1 seminar. For 5 months we have rented a space on the Bahnhofstrasse in Witten in order to transform it into a research center for visuality. The public screenings are accompanied by a biweekly seminar, in which essayistic and ethnographic approaches will be discussed with the philosopher Christian Grüny. In addition, the two filmmakers, Louis Henderson (London) and Kerstin Schrödinger (Zurich) will present their work and elaborate new film projects with the participants.
The screenings every Tuesday at 8pm in the Bahnhofstrasse 48. For updates see:
This project has been made possible through the generous funding of the der Individual Artistfunding (IKF) of the Ministerium für Familie, Kinder, Jungend, Kultur und Sport NRW and the European Center for Creative Economy.
