Linol and Poetry Films
by Jakob Kirchheim and Teresa Delgado

Bergstraße 2

Jakob Kirchheim's and Teresa Delgado's new work “Vulkan Vertikal” refers to the vulcano Popocatépetl in Puebla, Mexico, and quotes verses of José Maria Heredia (1803-1839) about presence and evanescence, peoples and emperors. The film mixes street scenes from San Andrés and San Pedro Cholula Puebla, high contrast images, printed words, voice-over and a number of linoleum prints as a montage. The still active vulcano becomes a metaphor for the precarious state of the current civilization and the life of cities in the world.

“Veracruz without ship”/ “Veracruz sin barco” 2014 is a poetic walk through Veracruz, port of European exiles and Mexican oil, of melodrama and of the rhythm danzón. In “Madrid”, colors, light and paper cut-outs are being combined with an analogue 3D-model of the city. “Terrorsounds” is a visualization of memories of bomb explosions. And several earlier films by Jakob Kirchheim use a analogue animation/montage of linocut printings. Including the very first linocut films "Zurückbleiben" and "Alfabet" from 1989.
