Cinema in the Expanded Field

 - Cinema in the Expanded Field
This volume, published in parallel to Exhibiting the Moving Image, extends the inquiry into the history, theory and practice of exhibiting artists' cinema, video, installation as well as advertising films, by focusing on the domains of performance and of the “expanded arts.”
Together with Exhibiting the Moving Image, this volume offers case studies of “exhibitions,” understood as events whose singularities emerge through the problematic they raise, articulated to the formation and redefinition of larger “exhibitionary complexes”: the intention is to sketch alternative archaeologies of film exhibitions and complicate their histories as indexed either to the black box or to the white cube. Instead, we aim to map situations of cross-pollinations and hybridization, as well as exclusions, between these devices, yet accounting for the singularity—resulting from the relationship between the aesthetic domain, technical apparatuses, discourses and audiences in their spatial settings—of each of the events studied.
Published as part of the eponymous research project conducted by ECAL / Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne, directed by François Bovier & Adeena Mey, and funded by HES-SO / University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland.
