Evgeny Granilshchikov is a Russian artist and independent filmmaker. He studied literature and animation at the Rodchenko School of Photography and Multimedia in Moscow and is a key figure in the new critical generation of young Muscovite artists. He creates complex multimedia installations as well as stand-alone films. In his films he integrates his profound knowledge and love for film traditions. This becomes apparent in his sophisticated use of images. His films combine low tech and professionality. Smartphone recordings go hand in hand with high resolution registrations, and direct recordings are interspersed with re-enactments. This thematises the influence of political and social situations on individuals. His works show how people try to deal with their tradition and their daily situation, and the ways in which this influences their personal lives.

On Munich the artist notes:
The artwork ‘Munich’ is a documentary. I’m afraid of heights, and it is easier for me to deal with that fear when I’m making a video. I make a video almost every time I step onto an airplane.
This work is about euphoria, the feeling of love, in relation to the artist and his medium.
The work should be installed on a floating, translucent screen. The size of the projection varies.
