included, among other things, excerpts from Les Enfants (1984) by Marguerite Duras, produced in collaboration with Jean Mascolo and Jean Marc Turine.
“Last summer, in Paris, I read Le Camion by Marguerite Duras—a film in which the screenplay is read out rather than filmed: a screenplay that perhaps only pretends to be one and a film that perhaps only pretends to be a film. Following my arrival in Innsbruck, I found a dissertation on the Ort der Frau in Literatur und Film am Beispiel von Duras’ ‘Les Enfants’ (en.: Site of Woman in Literature and Film Using Duras’s ‘Les Enfants’ as an Example). A few days later, I met Ms. Gamper in the glass cube of the university.
We spoke, speak about repeating motifs related to children in Duras and also about Ernesto, the seven-year-old in an adult’s body.”

He has initiated several collaborative projects including Freitagsküche in Frankfurt and Berlin and voiceoverhead, a collaboration with artist Dani Gal.

Scriptings is open to artists, writers, graphic designers, performers and publishers—all those who make use of “script” and “text” formats in their respective production processes.
