|2021 EDITION / ARTISTS IN FOCUS|
Artists in focus spotlight monographic programmes of artists who work with the moving image and that are rarely featured at non-fiction festivals.
Robert Fenz was a visionary filmmaker and artist whose dynamic moving images speak directly to his passionate connection to place and the fleeting, untold histories he so skillfully reanimated. Inspired by the great street photography of the 1950s and 1960s and dedicated to shooting film as film, Fenz invented extraordinary beautiful, innovative and often rapturous images that gave vital form to his notion of the cinema as an expressive form able to challenge dominant perceptions of the world.
Pedro G. Romero is an artist. He also works as an exhibition curator, critic, art historian, writer, artistic director of dance — for example, with Israel Galván, since 1998 — and theatre, musicals director and, now, film director. He is a fan of flamenco, a condition he claims over other ways of doing things. His work, as well as in theatres and art galleries, has been shown at the Fundaciò Antoni Tápies, CA2M, Museo Picasso in Barcelona, MNCARS, Venice Biennale, Kunstvereim in Stuttgart, Sao Paulo Biennale, Bergen Assembley and Documenta in Kassel. He is founder and member of pie.flamenca, Independent Platform for Modern and Contemporary Flamenco Studies.
