Making of
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 30'0'' | Allemagne / Autriche | 2015
The film "Making of" takes work as a topic into focus, showing the various working areas of a contemporary art museum with all those activities which usually remain invisible for visitors. Shot from the perspective of a small filmcrew different kind of workflows are documented as well as the preparation for an upcoming exhibition, while the crew itself is constantly observed in their efforts to create this film. Director, cameraman and sound operator move through all areas of the The State Gallery in Linz in an almost performative way. The ongoing visible presence of the camera raises questions about the relationship between the documented actions, their authenticity and manipulation. The depicted reality becomes visible as part of a media construction.
