15 min, HD/16 mm, stereo sound, language: English
Ana Hušman’s practice disassembles the structures and textures of cinematic elements through film, installation, books, sound, image and text. Hušman experiments with the possibilities of animation, documentary and fictional cinematic methods, and the possibilities of the recorded voice and its articulation. Her working process questions and plays with the positions of the amateur and the professional subject of performativity, the medium itself, and the structures that dictate and produce patterns of behavior.
Hušman is an associate professor at the Department of Animation and New Media at the Academy of Fine Art in Zagreb, cofounder of the documentary film organization RESTART where she has been holding film education programs for children and young people for many years.
Her works have been shown at festivals and exhibitions including: 9th Gwangju Biennale; 53 Oktobarski Salon, Beograd; Medienturm Gallery, Graz; On the Eastern Front, Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Arts, Budapest; “lucy” bodig & ART ON STAGE, URA, Istanbul; Stuttgarter Filmwinter; International Film Festival Rotterdam; 25 fps, Zagreb; DOK, Leipzig.
