Keeping an EYE on films24 January 2013
EYE Filmmuseum (Film and Exhibition)
Famed film institute housed in an architectural masterpiece
until 17 Mar | Oskar Fischinger (1900-1967)
The institute is presently hosting a major exhibition exploring the works of Oskar Fischinger, a pioneer of animation and abstract cinema. This German avant-garde filmmaker made short films that were highly influential in the development of animated film, music videos and computer graphics. Here you can experience many of his films and some original, never previously displayed animation drawings that Fischinger used to create his films. Paintings, notated musical scores and personal documents supplement these items. The exhibition also includes rarely shown fragments of Fischinger’s experiments from the 1920s to ‘40s, which have now been restored.
Opening hours: Daily 11:00-18:00 (various times for film screenings) | €8
