Basel, May 4, 2022
New poster and new venues
Bildrausch will be staged as an in-person festival; new venues are the Kaserne Basel and the Gare du Nord. Selected films will be available online and barrier-free for 48 hours. As the festival’s new artistic director, Susanne Guggenberger is responsible for the program for the first time.
Her program wants to focus on the present moment. What do the films evoke in us? What do they touch? The world outside of movie theaters and within Europe is shaken. Exploring community through films during the festival on site creates new possibilities within us.
For the 2022 poster, the specifications were: Distance, landscape and a human being, intense colors. Eventually, we selected a photo by Ludovic Ballard, taken in France in 1991. The theme is intended to irritate in order to break with our visual habits. Because, as with the Festival, it takes more than one look in life to grasp the bigger picture.
