  [IMAGES OF A FLEETING WORLD. Manfred Neuwirth]

Starting from Manfred Neuwirth’s work BILDER EINER FLÜCHTIGEN WELT (“Images of a Fleeting World”), a dialogue between the private and the public memory is taken up, which is re flected in emotionally charged spaces. The film maker Neuwirth describes his analytical and sensitive handling of images that arise from memory: “BILDER EINER FLÜCHTIGEN WELT is a personal approach towards remembering, perceiving, thinking in images. I have a private archive with pictures that I took in various countries, but also storing material which shows ‘home places’ and is linked to my childhood, my adolescence. These images fall into place and shape my personal view. The corresponding pictures were taken under the most different circumstances, often encountering important political events. At the same time, my perception naturally is increasingly influenced by a reality that is transported through the media. I treat this topic in ten chapters; each chapter is introduced by a film scene serving as leitmotif.”
