Tobias Dostal works to rid the film medium of the classic canvas by restaging the movie in a space with sculptural elements – rebuilt 16 mm projectors and projection screens made of wood or paper constructions, for example. Addressing the roots of the film and similar artistic approaches in the past is crucial to his work. After extensive experiments in a variety of media, formats and techniques and dealing with artistic approaches such as the “Expanded Cinema” and structural film and the history of film, he found his visual language through the use of celluloid film.

His Film installations have been shown in group exhibitions at the gallery of La Esmeralda, New Mexico; Kunstschaufenster am Hallenbad, Wolfsburg; End in Nation, Kapitelsaal, Bad Hersfeld; Films about being God, Kreuzberg Pavillion, Berlin; Metamorphosen, Allgemeiner Konsumverein, Braunschweig and the Up and Coming Film Festival, Hannover.
