The Moving Image Salon is a monthly gathering in London for artists working in the fields of moving image and experimental filmmaking. It is intended as a relaxed and open space for conversation and exchange about contemporary moving image practices, a networking event and critical forum.
This session will begin with a short introduction by Moving Image Salon’s Daniel & Clara.
Under the Counter Culture explores and celebrates all aspects of night culture and the counter cultural and non-normative activities that it inspires.
Night Culture has long been at the forefront of avant-garde arts practice and the aesthetic and atmosphere of club culture has informed and inspired creative activity, individual and collective action where inhibitions and expectations are deconstructed, revealing a platform for free expression, experimentation, participation and play.
This is a call for Film and Video Works to be shown as part of a screening programme at the 51zero Arts festival in Rochester and Canterbury in October and November 2019. We are looking for works that respond to the theme Wishful Images: works that envisage, address and/or document ways of being and acting together, that propose ways out of the present moment.
Close-Up is thrilled to present a rare programme of experimental films by the German artist Dore O. which occupy a state in-between opaqueness and translucency, hypnosis and clarity. The programme has been selected by Berlin-based archivist and scholar Masha Matzke, who will also introduce the screening.
Organized at the initiative of the Culture and Arts association in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, to build a visual artistic future for the new generations, upgrading contemporary art and presenting“Video Art” artists from all the world.
This forum is the first one in the Gulf that is interested in this art and devoted to it annually, keeping up with developments in display, publishing, criticism and renewal.
As creative devices, humor and play have the power to both soothe and subvert. When juxtaposed with serious themes in art, humor and play may create cognitive dissonance in the viewer where, amidst their internal conflict, viewers can often laugh at their own discomfort. Henri Bergson noted in “Laughter: An Essay on the Meaning of the Comic,” there is an “…absence of feeling which usually accompanies laughter.” This absence creates a space for viewers to unpack the deeper conceptual underpinnings of the work.
