Cinema in the making

Isa Rosenberger

Cinema in the making is an ongoing research on Zagreb’s amateur film production, in the past as well as today, and its connection to the public space – a space always already populated by often conflicted feelings, imaginations, projections and projects (Schober 2013). Through several stages in 2014 and 2015, the project aims to investigate the democratic tendencies in video and film art, strongly present in the work of Kinoklub Zagreb (Cineclub Zagreb) and local artistic practices in public space in the ‘70s, such as the intervention Cinema for Balconies by Ivan Ladislav Galeta, from a contemporary perspective.
Lecture and screening in the Cineclub Zagreb is conceived as the first stage, in which Rosenberger examines her previous projects connected with the cinema and public space and introduces the concept of the intervention in public space of Zagreb planned for July 2015.

In her video works, installations and projects in public space Isa Rosenberger examines radical political changes and their social and economic consequences. By often juxtaposing subjective views and everyday biographies with the canonised representations of history, Rosenberger examines the construction of reality and the power of images related to it, in this way seeking to allow established stories to be newly reflected upon.

Rosenberger studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht. Her works have been exhibited at numerous group and solo exhibtions in Austria and internationally. She is based in Vienna.
