Christoph Schlingensief

Christoph Schlingensief was a talented, energetic maverick, often working on several projects at the same time: films, theater, opera, blogs, interviews, prose, art actions, videos. By the end of his life he was considered one of the most influential figures in the German theater and something of a national treasure. the screenings will take you through some of his landmark productions:

Starting with Für Elise (1982) 2 mins of Schlingensief’s first 16mm work is followed by the documentary Christoph Schlingensief and His Films for those who are completely unfamiliar with his work. ”My Wife in Five“, a short film of 3 music video clips are strange poetic shots about a woman. ‘Egomania‘ featuring Tilda Swinton and Udo Kier is a definite end-of-the-world scenario. Next “The German Chainsaw Massacre” is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of East Germans. Closing with a film that questions “What is normal? And who is retarded here anyway?” – Freakstars 3000 is the German parody of the American Idol
