The new international bi-annual BERLIN DOCUMENTARY FORUM offers an inventive, interdisciplinary carousel of events that will examine documentary practices. Presentations and encounters with experts will demonstrate the increasingly significant role played by the documentary across disciplines in the visual arts, performance, literature, and cinema. The BERLIN DOCUMENTARY FORUM will look at the development of these forms from both historical and contemporary perspectives. The first edition of the Forum includes a prestigious roster of artists, filmmakers and curators who will organize film screenings, live performances, public talks, readings, and art installations.
