14. Arsenal Summer School 2023

August 23–25, 2023, at Arsenal cinema and silent green


Once again this August the Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art is putting on its Summer School. Over the course of three days, 25 participants, Arsenal staff, and invited guests will tackle themes at the intersections of theory and practice

Under the title ARSENAL 60 ff. – What can cinema do? the Arsenal is taking its 60th anniversary and the approaching move of the institution to silent green Kulturquartier as an opportunity to look back, to all sides and above all to the future. During this year's Arsenal Summer School, participants will spend three days discussing the tasks of a film institution in contributions and workshops. In particular, the question will be asked as to how cinema relates to the world today, and what spaces for thought and action it can offer. How can the Arsenal contribute to shaping social change together with filmmakers, viewers and other communities of solidarity? 

With contributions by: Birgit Kohler, Angelika Ramlow, Stefanie Schulte Strathaus, Barbara Wurm, Uli Ziemons.


The events will be held partly in German and partly in English.
