Xperimenta, Xcentric's biennial meeting on the current state and issues of experimental film comes back in its third edition next November 4-6. Organized by the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona and curated by Miguel Fernández Labayen and Antoni Pinent, this year's edition centers on performance in a wide sense, 'from the practices of expanded cinema to the deconstructions of social, cultural and sexual actions'.
The event open with a talk by German filmmaker Matthias Müller, who will also present a selection of his solo films as well as his collaborations with Christoph Girardet, and will also curate a 'carte blanche' programme. American artists Luis Recoder and Sandra Gibson will give a master class on their working methods and will present a selection of their collaborative performances using up to four 16mm projectors. The section Performing Pop includes Vaginal Davis, with her performance 'Memory Island', and a screening of video pieces by Carles Congost, both of whom will be the protagonists of a talk modarated by Marc Siegel.
