More detail information from the inlet:

a loop is like a crack in a record
a perpetuum mobile of visual emotion
repetition brings filmic motion to a halt
it´s like a magic moment that never ends

Life is a loop

Life leads us to a final point. But the “everyday” seems to repeat itself endlessly. It´s like a loop.

Perpetuum Mobile

The loop is the shortest form of filmmaking: a “perpetuum mobile” of audio-visual emotion. Comparable to a never-ending rhyme or a crack in a record, repetition brings filmic motion to a halt.

Group Project

We had always wanted to organize a group project with “Raum für Projektion” and work with the filmmakers and artists who we find interesting. Because we know from our own experience how much time and effort it takes to make a film, we always shy away from asking filmmakers to get involved without financing. Interesting loops can be created with any amount of effort. They can be a by-product of editing or an elaborately-produced sequence.

The Spectrum

The creative spectrum of the 50 video loops by 55 artists is broad. There are narrative, documentary, hypnotic, animated, mysterious, reduced, decorative, critical, hip, sad, amusing, longwinded, dramatic, found, artistic, technozoid, drawn, photographed, flickering and finely-observed loops between 6 frames and 10 minutes. Many loops are silent; others have sound or music. The spectrum of the “loop pool” DVD shows how the short format is dealt with today. Included in the list of participants are music-video or short-film directors, as well as visual artists and VJs.

Technical Prerequisite

On a DVD, contrary to on a CD, tracks can be looped. That means: At the end of a film, one automatically jumps back to the beginning. Via the “Menu” button on the remote control, one can exit the loop.


It’s fun to flip from loop to loop, or to leave one sequence on for the whole evening: The TV becomes a “moving picture”.


Loops don’t demand as much attention as films do, and they create more of an atmosphere. Because they repeat themselves endlessly, one can also turn away once in a while to talk with someone.


At “Raum für Projektion” the loops are set to music by DJs and musicians. Each piece is autonomous. The loops are not mixed. At the premiere during the 51st International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, Adam Butler, Christian Fennesz and Tujiko Noriko played live to the loops. Bettina Latak, Hanna Bächer, Lars Henrik Gass, Jade, Steffen Irlinger, Veronika and Anima played as DJs. In the exhibition situation the 50 video loops are shown on the same number of monitors or projections, or on a single monitor with one loop each day for 50 days.

Raum für Projektion

“Raum für Projektion” is a DVD label and a temporary projection space for showing video projects. The center of the space is a screen which is visible to viewers from both sides. The space is intended as a pathway between the classical cinema presentation and visuals that one knows from clubs.
