2013-10-talkAthenx

I am currently preparing for a Korsakow-Talk at Biennale III in Frankfurt. Well, I talk about Korsakow all the time, but this time I will structure my talk in Korsakow. For that I sliced all my resent talks into small pieces and the audience will vote on what they want to see. This will be the third time this kind of talk will be performed, after Montreal and Athens both in 2010. Technically a bit tricky, it is fun, it is deep, it is an other Korsakow-experiment {in German}!

»Korsakow – ein alternatives, nicht-lineares Erzählsystem« Lecture mit Florian Thalhofer
Freitag, 1. November 2013, 12:30 – 13:30 Uhr im Frankfurter Kunstverein.

13terShop - new interface!

13terShop is a webdoc about Roland Center, a shopping mall in Bremen. Roland Center was one of the first shopping malls built in Germany in 1972, which is by coincidence the same year, the two authors (Florian Thalhofer and Kolja Mensing) were born. Thalhofer and Mensing lived for 31 days in the shopping mall and portrayed the regular visitors of the shopping-mall, as well as the people running it.

13terShop was originally published in 2007 on the internet and as a book/DVD. The updated version provides improved video-quality and the possibility to few this Korsakow™-film full screen.

In a series of events, the German documentary filmmaker and media artist Florian Thalhofer will present a selection of his interactive films and will talk about his unique form of expression. His works are based on the principle that in reality things occur simultaneously rather than in succession.
Florian Thalhofer has invented the [Korsakow system] (korsakow.com/ksy), an easy-to-use editing software which allows you to publish interactive films on- and offline to suit his particular form of expression. He is the recipient of many awards such as the literatur digital award, the reddot design award, and the Werkleitz Award.

Some of his main projects are:

[13terShop] Florian Thalhofer and Kolja Mensing spent a month in a shopping mall in Bremen to explore life in a shopping heaven.

[LoveStoryProject] The LoveStoryProject is a an ongoing Korsakow film that started in Kairo in 2002 to understand how people perceive love in different parts of the world.

[Forgotten Flags] In this project Florian Thalhofer and Juliane Henrich have tried to explore the feelings of people in Germany about the German flag post-2006 World Cup.
