Lutz Dammbeck (born in 1948 in Leipzig) is a German painter, graphic artist and filmmaker. Before leaving East Germany in 1986, he produced some of the most remarkable animated and experimental films of the Eastern Bloc. His Mediencollage Herakles (1979-1984) was the main event at the first East German Intermedia Festival in 1985 that was held in Coswig near Dresden. When production of Herakles, the feature-length experimental film he had planned, was aborted at one of the state DEFA studios, Dammbeck realised the original concept as a media collage under varying titles and collaborations, among others with the dancer Fine Kwiatkowski. Films include Das Netz (The Net) (2004) und Overgames (2015).
