Dr. Marc Glöde presented a video program structured to illustrate his professional approach to his curatorial practice and the way in which professional curatorial selection can become an expression of ideas relevant to contemporary visual arts. As part of the presentation, he showed short films that have influenced his work and opened a discussion on film practice in the visual arts. Mark Glöde presented historical and more recent experimental films, and the main theme of his lecture focused on how "ways of thinking become form", referring to Harald Zeeman's landmark 1969 exhibition "When Attitudes Become Form", which became one of the legendary artistic events of the recent past.
