Solo – Henry Gwiazda

Solo feature- Henry Gwiazda (USA)

The geographic focus in February 2011 is directed on USA. CologneOFF is starting with the 1st solo feature, i.e the exceptional work of the video artist Henry Gwiazda, who found his typical artistic language of minimal movements – an exciting viewer experience.
His solo feature can be accessed via the main application on http:/coff.newmediafest.org or the individual screens –> Screen 3 (geographical) see also http://www.nmartproject.net , or Screen 4 (solo), see also –> http://www.newmediafest.org.

During February, each week new selections of experimental film and videoart by US artists will be launched online, so visiting CologneOFF 2011 online again and again will be worth while.

The physical screenings will continue.

There will be another screening until 6 February at CUCOSA Art Space in the framework of Rotterdam International Film Festival –> more info on
