This Pictogram Animation was screened during the opening of Water Tower Art Fest (June 2014) in the garden of the actual water tower.
Realised by students of SRH Hochschule der populären Künste (hdpk) in Berlin, Germany. Namely: Niklas Almerood, Niklas Bauer, Jendrik Drazetic, Nicolai Herzog, Mareike Heyne, Sandra Janke, Leon Jurtzik, Kalina Meyer, Dimitri Müller, Tim Pertuch. The project has been organised by assistant professor Kim Dotty Hachmann.
There is an unlikely change in this year’s edition of WTAF. The festival’s emblem, the tower, has been closed for visitors and people by the local authorities. Due to the political problems in Bulgaria this tower is just more than a closed monumental building. It is a place where change happens. A team of students from the hdpk Berlin collect information around the situation and thus visualise together an animated protest video against the prohibition. Their aim is to support and promote the claim and wish: Tower to the people.
