The Rencontres Internationales program revolves around today’s societal, social and philosophical discourse, issues predominantly embedded within an artistic context. These international encounters occur not only among cities and landscapes, but for the most part at the level of artistic discourse.
Experimental film is a construction with an open end: The experiment cannot be planned in advance or in detail. This remnant of uncertainty leads to a tension that the experimental film is, again and again, still able to convey, in that the parameters by which it is produced are redefined and often developed for the first time for the film in question.
In 2010, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and Rencontres Internationales jointly invite you to enter this new territory and go beyond language barriers, because exploring open terrains is experienced directly. The new program was previously presented from 30 November – 9 December 2009 at the Centre Pompidou, the Jeu de Paume and the Théâtre du Châtelet and after its opening in Madrid (April) it will travel to the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in June.
