Master of Film

The Master of Film lecture series

Every other Wednesday night the Master’s department of the Film Academy invites guests to come and give a lecture. Speakers can be film makers, visual artists, composers but also philosophers, scientists or film theoreticians. The aim is simple: to broaden our horizon and to get inspired by a diversity of approaches and perspectives.

The lectures are free and open to all who are interested. For most lectures a reservation won't be necessary, but if you want to be sure to have a seat: please use the online RSVP form.

Join our lectures mailinglist and we'll keep you informed!

Programme winter/spring 2015

15 April 2015, 19:00 hrs.

Performing Life | Ulay

Photo by Lena Pislak

We will screen 'Project Cancer' (2013), a documentary, directed by Damjan Kozole, following Ulay dealing with 'the biggest and most important project of his life', his illness. After the screening, which starts at 19.00h!, there will be ample time and space to talk about what matters... work, art, cinema, culture, politics, life....

Uwe Frank Laysiepen (1943), better known as Ulay, has been a pioneer of Polaroid photography and one of the central figures of performance art since the 1970s. A singular presence among the artists of his generation, his radically innovative work, partly known for his twelve-year partnership with Marina Abramovic, has received critical acclaim worldwide. 'I have produced a very bizarre body of work', Ulsay says of his artistic career; 'I have experimented a lot. You have to if you are aiming at something that does not yet exist.'
