It was typical, one day Wilfried was contacted by persons responsible for an videoart event in, respectively close to Barcelona/Spain – he had never heard before.
Barcelona is actually a good place for film and video, in fact, however it is actually overwhelmed with such cultural events, and therefore Wilfried was happy that Barcelona existed also on the countryside, a small place dominated by a former “convent”, nowadays abandoned and used for divers cultural purposes like concerts, theatre, residency and festivals. And then it was clear – and Wilfried was particularly happy that the local organizers had tried to bring divers festivals together in an several days lasting program of projections, Wilfried was not standing alone in the middle of nowhere but in best company with welrespected festival and artists collegues. He is presenting today and tomorrow a small curated video program entitled: Alternate Perceptions – Percepciones Alterna.
Wilfried’s video “Silent cry” is making a short stop in La Paz/Bolivia on a tour around the world – at Festival internacional de cine y video alternativo – Ojo al Sancocho.
And jumping back to 2003, when in Buenos Aires Maimonides University is organising a 2 days colloquium including a digital multimedia exhibition (18/19 September 2003)- and in Paris @ Festival international du film de l’internet de Paris – both are presenting the most recent multimedia work – “Urban.early Sunday morning_raw” created originally in Flash, but later successfully transformed into linear video formats like mp4. Unfortunatly, for Wilfried it was never possible to attend such events of a short duration!
