“Kels is interested in the unstaged world, in the 'real' if you like […]. Kels films the 'unstaged' world. He goes to a place, sets up his camera, observes, and, in so doing, anticipates some action or movement. He chooses a world which, by its very nature, would be hard to stage: haystacks in a field, a flock of starlings in the air, alcoholics on the street, rhinoceroses and hippopotamuses in the zoo. Most of the time he films at a fixed distance. He does not move his camera.“
(from: "The films of Karl Kels", Miryam van Lier, Visions du Réel, Nyon, 1996)

Karl Kels was born in 1960 in Düsseldorf. He works as a freelance artist with film, photography and installation. He studied from 1980 - 1987 at the Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main and at Cooper Union in New York City, under Peter Kubelka and Robert Breer.

His works are in private and public collections, like Anthology Film Archives, New York, Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt, FRAC - Alsace, Sélestat, Österreichisches Filmmuseum, Wien, Centre Pompidou, Paris and the Musée d’Art Moderne, Strasbourg.

Entrance is free of charge.
