Even more experimental this time and much more
28. – 30.04.2023
Decades after Cinemiracle was initially used to produce one lone film, the widescreen cinema format has been redeveloped by Professor Andreas Ingerl of the HTW Berlin. In its contemporary form, a triple split-screen process (3-channel video), Cinemiracle produces tripartite films and references Instagram through its squares.

Over the past semester, the students of the HTW Berlin’s Communication Design Program were tasked with reinterpreting Ingerl’s version of Cinemiracle. The result, as the exhibition Even more experimental this time and much more demonstrates, is that they not only reinterpreted Cinemiracle’s new format, but they also deconstructed it by incorporating and relying on generative design and artificial intelligence, among other things. Their experimental films, which range from illustrating fear from the perspective of the affected to documenting a woman suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, make clear that films can be watched from all directions and can be non-linear, that is, they can simply be loops and random sequences.

The films presented in the Project Room of the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen explore the post-pandemic thoughts of their makers. They examine fear and depression, the meaning and the nonsense of life, illness and forgetting, aesthetics and perspective, and truth and lies, and are, above all, about people, including those who stand before them.

Participants: Sina Farah Al-Bayati, Nina Louisa Bell, Josefine Birkholz, Jule Degenhardt, Samuel Freimoser, Anna Katharina Galler, Margarita Gehl, Darja Jakushevich, Henning Marxen, Karolina Musial, Kaja Mussenbrock, Noa Sehring, Lea Sophie Pagels, and Rosa Pernthaller

This exhibition takes place in cooperation with the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen.
