Lukas Marxt

Lukas Marxt (AT) is a filmmaker whose main goal is ‘to capture time’. Deserted places and violent geographies such as oil rigs or Arctic coastlines provide opportunities to pursue this quest. In 2012 Marxt was involved in The Arctic Circle Residency Program, which meant he could sail through the desolate Arctic trenches for weeks, resulting in several films. Marxt often uses the aesthetics of documentary filmmaking, and with each film he makes, he also releases an artist book to illustrate the fundamental differences between the two media. Marxt has received several awards, including the 2014 TFHMF Award, the 2013 Marler Videokunst-Preis, and the 2013 Spiridon Neven Dumont Preis. lukasmarxt.com 'Reign of Silence' by Lukas Marxt
