Medium-specificity and sociality in expanded cinema re-enactment

Conference Paper

Abstract


  • In this short paper, I introduce the work of the artist

    group Teaching and Learning Cinema, which reenacts

    Expanded Cinema artworks from the 1960s

    and 70s. I make a connection between sociality

    (which binds together artists in collectives and

    screening "clubs") and the issue of mediumspecificity.

    Re-enacting Expanded Cinema, I suggest,

    gently probes at the intersection of mediumspecificity

    and sociality. This practice asks questions

    about the material qualities of film, video and

    performance, and the particular relations these

    media carry across time and culture.
