Dr Johannes Maier
Senior Lecturer in Film
Moving Image Research Centre (MIRC) https://www.uel.ac.uk/research/the-moving-image-research-centre
I work as a senior lecturer in the Media Department of the School of Arts and Creative Industry (ACI). I teach undergraduate and postgraduate students in two film programmes. Currently, I am co-director of the Moving Image Research Centre (MIRC).
University of East London
London, E16 2RD
My film work documents events in which I collaborate with people and institutions such as interpreters at the European Commission and a newsroom picture editor at the BBC. The focus of my work, intentionally positioned at the boundaries of art, documentary and media, is a critical engagement with televisual forms.
My work has been shown internationally in group- and solo exhibitions, as well as in film festivals including: New Contemporaries (UK), East International (UK), the Short Film Festival of Oberhausen (D), and Kunstverein Bielefeld (D).
