Program: In Referenz Ausstellung Kunsthaus Graz: Kurzfilmprogramm Agitation - Ästhetik - Politik

How is it possible to work precisely, formally, and from new angles against rigid thought patterns? The creator of this year’s Diagonale trailer, Johann Lurf, collects historical and current cinematic works that show political thinking, speaking, acting, and filmmaking as matters of immediate urgency. All together, they question the apparently given. What strategies do filmmakers use to illuminate a present political situation and move viewers? Without movement, no change—a motion picture as food for thought.
