9/16 12:00 h
Duration: 60 minutes
»You see, my son: here time becomes space« is the motto of the first change of scenery in Richard Wagner’s »Parsifal« (1882). The motto can also be regarded as an early vision of the new medium film which was to come into being some time later. The transformations of the stage space in film will be presented with examples from early films. Cinematic »Gesamtkunstwerke« and strategies of post-modern space cinema will also be dealt with.
