Michael Cowan: "Walter Ruttmann and the Weimar Advertising Film"
24.05.2016 | 14:00 Vortrag von Michael Cowan.
Freie Universität Berlin, May 24, 2016
Since his time at the University of Berkeley, California, the idea of “Kulturpoetik” has been a core interest in Michael Cowan’s work. As an expert of early German film and Reader in Film Studies at St Andrews University, Cowan currently works on the emergence of cinephilia and the notion of modernity. In this context, Cinepoetics was very pleased to welcome him for an interesting talk on Walter Ruttmann’s early animated advertisements.
