Einleitung für Thema|Weinviertler Fotowochen | 30. 07. 2016 - 06. 08. 2016
This year's Weinviertel Photography Week will focus on theater photography. Experienced theater photographers will introduce the workshop participants to relevant methods, to technical and formal instruments and approaches.
The workshops aim to impart an understanding of the diverse forms of the theatrical on the one hand and on the other hand to provide a number of different techniques and devices suited to represent current contemporary theater in photographic form. Special attention is given to experimental formats, where scenic and visual presentation methods connect in new and surprising ways. Photography, thus liberated, turns from servant to partner to theatrical staging.
The workshop will be take place on the premises of Castle Wolkersdorf and also on the 'Himmelskeller' grounds in the neighboring Kronberg, a comprehensive artistic system by the Weinviertel artist Hermann Bauch (1929-2006), which in its labyrinthine diversity provides numerous "stage scenery settings".
