Helga Fanderl

Helga Fanderl (Ingolstadt, Germany, 1947) divides her time between Paris and Frankfurt. After studying German, French and Italian language and literature, she discovered Super 8 and studied at the Sta␣ delschule in Frankfurt with Peter Kubelka and The Cooper Union in New York with Robert Breer. Her works have screened at festivals, cinematheques, contemporary art museums and art galleries in Europe and the US since the early 1990s. She has made over 900 films. In 2014 she began to compile a catalogue raisonné of her work.

A poet of the image, Fanderl rests her curious and intense gaze on reality, transforming it. A gesture, face, an- imal, fountain or any other visual solicitation is captured through the Super 8 camera that Fanderl almost al- ways carries with her. Handheld camera work and in-camera editing are the fundamental traits of her immediate cinema of emotional frenzy. Fanderl never presents her films individually, but creates for each screen- ing one or more visual constellations.
