Lowave Collection

Lowave's film and video collection has been built between 2002 and 2014 and features over 250 video artists and filmmakers from around the world. The label has contributed to an important number of international exhibitions, biennials, film and video festivals, as well as academic programmes. As Lowave's activities evolve, we have stopped our film distribution and our catalogue serves now as an archive that documents over a decade of film and video art history. A selection of our DVDs is on sale at Re:Voir in Paris.

Christina Von Greve

*1968, Bonn, Germany. Lives and works in Cologne, Germany.

Christina von Greve graduated from the Academy of audiovisual arts in Cologne, in 2001. During the making of Desde la memoria, she was living in Madrid (2002-2003) for the Pépinières pour Jeunes Artistes (mobility programs enabling emerging artists to develop projects in foreign countries) of the MAP program. Her film, through a condensation of testimonies and archives from the Spanish civil war, brings out an image of everyday suffering under Franco’s dictatorship. It abandons all didactic and contextual relationships to the benefit of rough memories and their sensibilities. Christina von Greve comes from a generation of artists that places its work in the cinematic field as well as that of visual arts. Her latest movie, Flicker, co-directed by C-Schultz, has been selected for the 10th edition of the Festival des Cinémas Différents de Paris.
