Caroline Koebel

Last Name: 
First Name: 

Caroline Koebel is a filmmaker who has exhibited in the US at Anthology Film Archives, Los Angeles Film Forum, Other Cinema, MadCat Festival, and elsewhere, and internationally, including in Brazil, Cuba, Ireland, Thailand, and Poland. Recent solo screenings include Millennium Film Workshop in NYC and Artist's Television Access in San Francisco. Transmissions of conceptual art, feminist film and literary theory, and punk DIY ethos guide her in work that embraces pleasure and desire as tactics to displace authoritarianism, commodity culture, and the endangerment of subjective experience. Drawing breath from experimental film pioneers such as Germaine Dulac and Maya Deren, Koebel situates writing and curating firmly within her creative practice, with examples including the catalogue essay "Color the Shadow" on Carolee Schneemann and programs she has curated as a Board Member of the Film-Makers' Coop. She holds a BA in Film Studies from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Visual Arts from UCSD, and lives in Brooklyn.
