Caroline Koebel

Caroline Koebel is an Austin-based filmmaker and writer, with recent retrospectives at Festival Cine//B (Santiago, Chile) and Directors Lounge (Berlin, Germany). Current research focuses on the relationship individuals have to the greater reality of contemporary global experience and the means by which information is disseminated, gathered and assimilated in the Web 2.0 age. Flicker On Of, a three-part series presented at Scope Art Fair (USA), Edinburgh International Film Festival (Scotland), European Media Art Festival (Germany), and LOOP Barcelona (Spain), applies the idiom of experimental film and artist’s video to big-budget movies in order to ponder global warming, the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, and the Haditha Massacre in an alternate essay format. Viewing Blind, her series-in-progress supported by the Texas Filmmakers’ Production Fund and the Kodak Award, extends this trajectory combining different technologies and clashing aesthetics with journalism by redefining the debate about the US drone program in the Middle East. She has published in Jump CutBrooklyn RailAfterimageArt Papers, and Wide Angle, and co-authored the acclaimed stencil graffiti book Schablone Berlin. She holds a BA in Film Studies from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Visual Arts from UC San Diego, and is on faculty at Transart Institute (New York-Berlin).
