Korsakow allows users without any programming skills to create non-linear or database-driven stories.

Korsakow opens the door to a land of previously untold stories. Stories that could not be told with traditional ways of storytelling – stories without a message or moral. Korsakow is an ideal tool to portray the world more accurately.

Florian Thalhofer, Author.

The Korsakow System (Pronounced ‘KOR-SA-KOV’) is a software for creating browser-based dynamic documentaries. Invented in 2000 by Berlin-based artist Florian Thalhofer, Korsakow allows users without any programming expertise to create and interact with non-linear or database-driven narratives, referred to as Korsakow-Films. The software can be used to produce documentary, experimental and fictional narrative works and has been integrated into live performance and installation pieces.
