Mark Ther

Brief info

Mark Ther’s humorous but heartfelt short films and videos engage head-on with questionable tastes, camp, and queer aesthetics, pop-cultural references, and often-suppressed subjects. Ther’s films take on the language of the music video as well as narrative conventions of the feature film and the confessional reportage and provide comic relief to important social questions. Mark Ther works with fictional and historical relations all connected to the Sudetenland. He connects the topics of Heimat and Vertreibung (forceful and violent deportation of about 3 million German citizens from Czechoslovakia after 1945) with mysterious stories and explorations of sexual identity. Queerness and gender variations are one of the main topics of his work. Most of his films are in more or less extinct Sudeten German language.
