The Casserole Series is an online platform for the artistic experiment. Originally The Casserole Series worked as Sunday salons inviting visual artists, installation artists, poets, writers, sound artists, printmakers, and musicians to showcase their work in an intimate setting. Due to the current pandemic, the series has moved online. Each Sunday an artist's work is featured accompanied by an interview.
Cámara Lúcida has the purpose of being the convergence of cinematography surrounded by poetry, politics and sensitivity; like the main axis of their aesthetic and narrative being; purposes that deserve being preserved in a society that, slowly but strongly, tries to disappear the criticism and meditation through the overwhelming homogenization.

Before the hegemony of the image, succumb or doubt them. We choose the latter. Question what it represents and search beyond its surface. We believe in the multiple possibilities of interpretation of moving images and the power that their appropriation has to demonstrate it. Coating, manipulating or reusing have been frequent concepts in each of our previous editions. And this year, due to the health context, we add another that defines us fully: mutate. We take the virtual space to deliver, with the same care and affection as always, our fourth edition.

Bruce Baillie, who died on April 10th of this year, was the pioneer of the "Western American Experimental Film" and the key figure in the pioneering avant-garde awakening in the San Francisco Bay Area in the sixties. In memoriam we show two of the main works by this underground poet: Mass for the Dakota Sioux is a picture-sound poem as a requiem for a native culture destroyed by "civilized" America (as an outsider, Baillie naturally identifies with the Sioux and orchestrates the Gregorian chorales on the soundtrack like an accusation to the world of the white conquerors).
