“an Strahlen” is a series of workshops designed as a playful introduction to public performance. “an Strahlen” aims to explore the interaction between audience and participants, (found) footage and urban environments, projections and the human body.
“an Strahlen” can be translated as both “close to rays (of light)” and as “shining light on something or someone”.

an Strahlen I
NODE Forum for media arts, Frankfurt am Main, 14-17.2.2013
Bring your laptop/patches/movie file on USB stick for a 5-minute screening in front of the Frankfurter Kunstverein. There is a beamer and audience, but no screen – you can select from available fabrics, cloth, paper etc. and create the screen you like – either build it in advance or create one on site. Moving, collapsing, static. Or gather a group of people and let them be your screen.
It’s not about precision, it’s about improvisation and having fun.
Florian Egermann, Thomas Eichhorn
