Berlin fest ramps up art sidebar

Forum Expanded will films, videos, room installations

The Berlin Film Festival is partnering with KW Institute for Contemporary Art to widen its Forum sidebar to include contempo film and video art.

Under the title Forum Expanded, the joint project will show 11 film, video and room installations that walk the line between cinema and art.

Installations and perfs inspired by cinema are increasingly becoming part of the Berlinale’s showcase.

A video installation by Amos Gitai, video works by Amie Siegel and Harun Farocki, and a 16mm film installation by Matthew Buckingham will be shown at the KW Institute, one of the city’s foremost modern art centers.

Several installations will be on display at the Filmhaus on Potsdamer Platz, while Meggie Schneider’s “Hobbykeller” (“Hobby Cellar”) will transform the atrium into an animated art space.

Israeli filmmaker Amos Gitai, whose video installation “News From House/News From Home” will open Feb. 8 at the KW, has already shown four films in the Forum.
