for Center for Visual Music L.A.
Center for Visual Music is pleased to announce the release of a new DVD compilation of the works of Berlin-based artist Robert Seidel. Seidel, who studied at the Bauhaus University Weimar, creates video installations, media façades and experimental films. Seidel pushes the boundaries of abstraction to the sublime and organic through his approaches drawn from scientific visual analysis and digital extensions of painting and sculpture - which creates complex rhizomatic patterns in motion. Seidel's projections are exhibited worldwide – from festivals and galleries to museums like ZKM, Karlsruhe; Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Antwerp; LACMA, Los Angeles; Art Center Nabi, Seoul; MuseumsQuartier, Vienna; Museum of Image and Sound, São Paulo and Museum ofContemporary Art, Taipei.
Produced by Center for Visual Music (Los Angeles) and Studio Robert Seidel (Berlin), the DVD collects his major films, videos and documentation from his projections and installations from 2001 to 2014. It includes some rare early experimental films and an extensive, exclusive interview with curator André Eckardt of the German Institute for Animated Film (DIAF).
