Wago Kreider, Associate Professor of video production, is a media artist, filmmaker, and curator of San Francisco's Studio 27, showcase for contemporary avant-garde film. His creative work engages with contemporary strategies of artistic reenactment, and the reconstruction of cinematic history. Through a critical meditation on the legacy of the filmic archive, his work explores the impact of database culture on digital filmmaking. Prior to receiving his MFA from the Visual Arts Department at Rutgers University, Professor Kreider spent seven years in San Francisco working as a producer and director of photography for news, corporate, and broadcast television. His films and videos have recently screened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hong Kong Film Festival, the London Film Festival, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the New York Film Festival, and will be featured at this year's Viennale, the International Film Festival of Vienna.
