POOL SHINE | MAYA DEREN
Maya Deren, Filmstill “Meshes of the Afternoon”, 1943
Maya Deren (1917-1961) is an important character of the American avant-garde scene of the 1940s and 1950s as well as a pioneer in the field of video dance with her movie A Study in Choreography for Camera (1945). POOL will dedicate one evening to her “cinematographic choreographies“ and present a selection of her films. Afterwards will open an exhibition that does not only give a picture of Maya Deren’s cinematographic works, but will also refer to her numerous, yet uncharted theoretical texts und thoughts about film, dance and art in general. This free accessible exhibition will be open during the festival days.
