Documentary #1: Darmstadt Summer Course 2016
Katharina Herkommer and Jörg Lohner (nmzMedia) have accompanied the Darmstadt Summer Course 2016 (29 July to 14 August 2016) with their camera and captured some impressions from concerts, installations, workshops and other activities, also providing a glimpse of the precious and now digitized Summer Course archive and ways of its artistic reflection.
