Ira Schneider: If Something Interested Me I Filmed ItFilm 1 - 5We Spent a Great Time

Happe works primarily with found footage material of historical events that he defamiliarizes by way of manipulating image speed and altering the color, introducing them to a new context of meaning. In addition, he also creates video documentaries, such as his portrait of the Berlin-based US-American video pioneer Ira Schneider, who besides his own work also made documentaries on key survey exhibitions from the early period of video art history.
