British Shorts Showcase: The Visual Worlds of Weirdcore
By establishing a self-proclaimed style of extreme Audio Visual whateverness, the graphic designer Weirdcore has left an unmistakable visual influence on independent artists and the realms of mainstream pop music in the past 15 years. Taking cues from the hyper-digital animations of the early Warp Records label and The Designers Republic in the 1990s, he is probably most well known for the ever-morphing psychedelic worlds that accompany Aphex Twin's live shows since 2009. Having collaborated with musicians as diverse as M.I.A., Mos Def, Gwen Stefani or Overmono and fashion brands such as Louis Vuitton, his transforming designs are almost impossible to pinpoint between constant creation and collapse. British Shorts Film Festival will make his distinctively flickering audiovisual works experienceable with a showcase of his influential music videos, commercials and experimental clips in the unique space of Kuppelhalle at Silent Green Kulturquartier.
The 13th British Shorts Film Festival takes place from 16 to 22 January 2020 at Silent Green, Sputnik Kino, Acudkino, City Kino Wedding, HAU Hebbel am Ufer and Kino Zukunft. The programme will be published in late December on www.britishshorts.de
