Werner Nekes

Erfurt (Germany), 1944 - Mülheim (Germany), 2017

Filmmaker and media researcher, although he also stood out as a collector of historical books, scientific objects and visual toys from the dawn of the media arts. His extensive collection covers five centuries of strange objects. His series of films Media Magica guides the viewer through his exclusive collections, showing his historical objects in movement. In doing so, he also shows how pre-cinema research in perspective, montage and the illusion of movement and space paved the way for films.
