Deorbit at GEGENkino

Deorbit will be screened at the next edition of GEGENkino as part of the Vertical Cinema programme with a screening at the Paul Gerhardt Church on 28 April.

Vertical Cinema creates alternative experiences and poses interesting artistic challenges that are highly suitable for GEGENkino and especially the theme explored during this third edition of the festival: Space.

Read more

The festival strives to challenge the conventions of cinema, explore what else is possible and move beyond boundaries. Space, a subject that often goes unnoticed, is often taken as a given, but is in fact full of meaning. GEGENkino departs from conventional cinema spaces to illuminate alternative venues with projected images.
Vertical Cinema filmmaker Johann Lurf will give an introductory talk about the project and his Vertical Cinema work Pyramid Flare.
Visit Gegenkino’s website for more details about the venue, tickets, the festival and the full programme.

Hello world 2.0.

We are very happy to announce our new Telscosystems website! Once it’s completely sorted and updated, it will present all of our works, future projects and plans, interviews, images, sounds, videos, and will serve as a sort of a simple archive of our artistic practice.

Read more

Telcosystems have been founded on a very significant date, 9.11.2001, and in the past 14 years, we have been active in different fields, but always somewhere on the territory of “art-science”: we made films on film, computer generated videos, installations, live performances, we made sound pieces, prints, publications and special, sound and image books, we have collaborated with numerous artists, initiated several special projects, travelled with our work on few tours, and often curated ourselves for different venues, both cinemas and galleries. Archive that we have built on this website was not easy to compile, since it includes sorting truly large data, evaluating, troubles with different, now obsolete formats, and scanning the internet for missing information. This website is a work in progress.
