Director Bio

Michael Poetschko is a visual artist and filmmaker currently based in Berlin and Austria. He received an MFA from the University of Fine Arts in Vienna (Harun Farocki class), and was a studio fellow at the Whitney Museum ISP in New York City.


The University of Edinburgh’s Talbot Rice Gallery is delighted to present the world premiere of visual artist Michael Poetschko´s new experimental narrative essay film Our Refrain. Our Refrain veers between poetic playfulness and philosophical speculation, following a group of students as they set up an experimental hub in an abandoned office building in Berlin. “A multi-voiced search for a shared perception, capable of inventing new practices of imagination, solidarity, refusal, resilience, and care.” (Poetschko). The short film The Risked Element (One Take for Harun Farocki) will also be screened.

This screening will be accompanied by the artist in conversation.
