AFTERMATH is a programme of short animations exploring the Great War at its centenary, and themes of conflict and loss. The programme is inspired by Elizabeth Hobbs’ ‘I’m OK’, about the Expressionist artist Oskar Kokoschka and his experiences as a soldier in the First World War.
Other internationally renowned filmmakers that feature in the programme include Vera Neubauer, Max Hattler, Emma Calder, Filipe Abranches, Tess Martin, and Paul Wenninger.
The Museum’s German Expressionist Art Gallery is the perfect setting for this programme, where its walls are lined with the artistic responses of Expressionist artists to the horrors of the First World War, and one of Kokoschka’s well-revered self portraits is on display.
The programme will be followed by filmmakers Elizabeth Hobbs and Sylvie Bringas speaking about the influence of Expressionism on their work, and will be chaired by Abigail Addison from Animate Projects.
Tickets are £4.50, available from the museum shop either in person or by calling 0116 225 4920. Booking advisable.
Owing to the subject nature, the programme is intended for a 15+ audience.
