    ARTS FIRST at the Harvard Art Museums: Direct Animation & Cameraless Filmmaking Materials Lab Workshop

    1:00pm

    Location: 

    Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street

    Amid the devastation following World War II, German artists and filmmakers engaged in technical experimentation that drew upon multiple media as they sought to redefine the nature of artistic practice and its relationship to national identity. Among these experimental forms was cameraless animation, a method of abstract filmmaking that involves the direct manipulation of film through scratching, puncturing, painting, and chemical alteration of emulsion.

    Productive Disorder: Music, Film, and Art in Postwar Germany

    6:00pm

    Location: 

    Harvard Art Museums

    Cultural production in postwar Germany was shaped by variety of oppositions: memories of the war’s horrors competed with fragile optimism for the future; renewed artistic freedoms came up against material scarcity and widespread destruction; and a growing appetite for experimentation and invention met with a lingering Nazi-inflected suspicion of anything too modern.
