The Graduation Show of Master Media Design – Lens Based
Piet Zwart Institute Willem de Kooning Academy

Master Media Design Lens-Based is a master-level course within the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam committed to lens-based image making as an art and craft.

The work of the artists in this show  — Anna-Lena Lystad, Catalina Giraldo, Sigrún Lýðsdóttir,
Fabian Landewee, Irma Oldenburg and Ryan Cherewaty — ranges from classic documentary, through photographic portraiture and installation work, to fully immersive moving image installations, and data-visualisation of complex scientific research.

The screening at KINO is an opportunity for the general public to see some of the distinctive cinematic works made by these talented emerging film-makers.

Irma Oldenburg (Nothing has to be Official), Sigrún Lýðsdóttir (Untitled), Catalina Giraldo (Sky Islands: a past time travel in the Andes Mountains), Ryan Cherewaty (Involuntary Parks) and (In Death’s Dream ) and at the beginning and end of the Graduation Program a section of surveillance footage that forms an element in a larger work by Anna-Lena Lystad, (Me and Christina) will be streamed live as audience leaves and enters the auditorium.
