Instead of Berlinale in February, there were Masterclasses in May 2022. Online, of course.

Raman Djafari and Candice Breitz has given public lectures in the morning, offering exciting and in-depth insights into their work. 

10.30 - 11.30 am:
Masterclass with Raman Djafari - Q&A included.
Short biography below.

Raman Djafari impressed us with three animated projects, which he called  a "triptych," explaining the connections between his colorful, surreal worlds and emotional themes and lyrics.


12.00 - 13.00:
Masterclass with Candice Breitz - Q&A included.
The lecture will be held in English.
Short biography below.

In Candice Breitz's masterclass we had the great honor to see a unpublished work that addresses the construction of whiteness at its core. The work will be shown from 15. Jun. - 21. Aug. at the Museum Folkwang.


This year's Hessen Talents Petra Stipetić and Sriram Srivigneswaramoorthy moderated. 

In the afternoon there were bookable one-on-one talks with Raman Djafari - exclusive offer for the Hessen Talents.

Registration for the lectures on 23.05. via: Eventbrite


Raman Djafari ist ein Illustrator, Animator und Filmemacher, dessen Praxis 2D und 3D Animation verbindet, er lebt und arbeitet in Hamburg. In den vergangenen Jahren hat Raman Musikvideos für Künstler*innen aus der ganzen Welt entwickelt und mit Labels wie Universal, Warp Records und Downtown Records zusammengearbeitet. Darüber hinaus hat er Kurzfilme für Kunden wie Adult Swim gemacht oder als Illustrator für Medium und The New Yorker gearbeitet. Neben seiner künstlerischen Praxis hält Raman regelmäßig Workshops und war zwei Jahre als Dozent für Animation an der HAW in Hamburg. Derzeit wird er als Regisseur vom Londoner Animationsstudio BlinkInk vertreten.


Candice Breitz (Johannesburg, 1972) is a Berlin-based South African artist. Most recently, her work has focused on the conditions under which empathy is produced, reflecting on a media-saturated global culture in which strong identification with fictional characters and celebrity figures runs parallel to widespread indifference to the plight of those facing real world adversity. Following the completion of her works 'Love Story' (2016) and ‘TLDR' (2017), she is currently working on the third part of a video trilogy that critically probes the attention economy. Breitz has been a tenured professor at the HBK Braunschweig since 2007.
