Prof. Kevin B. Lee

Wir freuen uns sehr mit unserem Crossmedia Publishing-Professor Kevin B. Lee! Er und Chloé Galibert-Laîné wurden vom Sundance Film Festival mit einem Art of Nonfiction Award ausgezeichnet! Das amerikanische Filmfestival ist ein wichtiger Schauplatz für experimentelle unabhängige Produktionen.

Das Sundance Festival für unabhängige, außerhalb Hollywoods produzierte Filme ist das größte seiner Art in den USA. Der Art of Nonfiction Fund verleiht Stipendien an Künstler, die Arbeiten entwickeln, die einen innovativen kinematischen Ansatz verfolgen.

Beschreibung des Sundance Institute:
Kevin B. Lee and his collaborator Chloé Galibert-Laîné are a team of videographic essayists developing a collaborative practice that combines filmmaking and media research. Their work explores contemporary audiovisual media through online, amateur and found footage contexts in relation to the politics of authority, self- expression, and the histories and theories of cinema. They have presented their works at the Austrian Film Museum, London Essay Film Festival, the Rotterdam International Film Festival, the Ars Electronica Festival and the Impakt Festival. In 2018 they were Artists in Residence at m-cult in Helsinki through the European Media Art Platform (EMAP).
