How does the world work? For several years, Tobias Hülswitt has been asking people to explain the world to him. Büro Achter April has turned one of these theories into an animated short film titled “Undercurrents”. Five other internationally renowned animation artists will be interpreting some of the other theories live at Strzelski Galerie on 23 February 2013. Three of Hülswitt’s interviewees will also be on hand to present their explanations of the world and visitors are invited to take part in short interviews and share their thoughts on the subject.
