In cooperation with the Merz Akademie, the SWR television culture magazine “Kunscht!” wants to retell the stories of 50 works of art in public space and from public collections in the German Southwest. “100 Seconds of Art” is supervised by Jana Gührer and Steffen König from the “Kunscht!” editorial team and Film and Video professor Peter Ott. Students created a 100-second clip for each artwork. The visual language is fresh, the narrative approach innovative. “100 Seconds of Art” is above all an online project and will be shown on SWR2’s Facebook page and on its own website. Since November 8th 2018, the short films have been shown on television at the weekly cultural magazine “Kunscht!”
The Merz Akademie also regularly presents short films and panels at the SWR Doku Festival.
