VRAL IRL_ ALEKSANDAR RADAN
Friday, November 24, 6:00 pm
Aula 613, floor -1, IULM 6
Via Carlo Bo, 2
Introduced in April 2020 amidst a global pandemic, VRAL is a uniquely curated game video experience, offering screenings of machinima created by artists and filmmakers whose work lies at the intersection of video art, cinema, animation, and gaming. The program features exceptional machinima selected on their cultural relevance, artistic achievement, and innovative style. Often presented only in the context of new media art festivals, film retrospectives, and exhibitions, these works best represent the variety, ingenuity, and creativity of game-based video practices. In 2023, VRAL goes IRL by introducing artists working with video games before a live audience.
Aleksandar Radan, born in Offenbach am Main in 1988, completed his studies in art at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach. His artistic focus lies in the realm of digital media, with particular emphasis on video games, which he appropriates, manipulates, and subverts. Central to Radan's body of work are themes that explore the unpredictable ruptures within meticulously designed systems, the aesthetics of simulation, and the evolving role of the artist in the age of algorithms. His diverse artistic practice encompasses experimental film and video, installation art, and performance. Radan's works have received recognition at prestigious venues, including the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival in Oberhausen.
