CURATOR TALK| 90mins| EXPERIMENTA 2009
Politics & Perception in Media Art History with Peter Zorn
It is a difficult undertaking to survey the diverse forms and styles of media art. The genre was ignored by aesthetic theory for decades and even experts find it hard to define. Nevertheless, Curator Peter Zorn takes a ramble through the history of media art with a political focus. From the 1920’s avant garde movement and experimental filmmakers like Walter Ruttmann and Hans Richter, to the 1960’s explosion of underground film, the fluxus movement, video art with Nam June Paik, and up to the 1990’s digital revolution with netart, Zorn presents major artists and their work, as well as forms and styles of media activism from past to present.

THROUGH THE PINHOLE
Workshop conducted by P.Madhavan of GOA-CAP

workshop exhibition

Through the Pinhole Workshop – Goa-CAP

This workshop offers a chance to explore the basic notion and engineering of the elusive pinhole camera and then apply these principals to their own creations. Recycled and alternative materials will be played with (including matchbox, milk tins, coke cans, etc…). The second half of the workshop will be spent testing the new alternative camera—taking pictures and experimenting with self-portraiture and landscape photos. This workshop will also explore various methods of printing and transferring images in the darkroom. We will make pinhole cameras and paper negatives followed by investigating the ways to make positives out of these negatives through coating paper. The pin hole images created by the workshop participants will then be exhibited on the final day of EXPERIMENTA (Dec 20th) at Jagaa.

OPTICAL PRINTING WORKSHOP| EXPERIMENTA 2005
Co-ordinated by no.w.here UK
An introduction to the process of artist filmmaking through 3 classics of experimental film.

1. Berlin Horse by Malcolm Le Grice
2. Charlemagne 2: Piltzer by Pip Chodorov
3. Adebar and/or Schwechater by Peter Kubelka

This workshop examines how these films have specifically used optical printing to create new forms of film art language. By breaking the films down into their component parts this workshop provides insight into how artists have experimented with film technology and how these technologies might be used to extend your own practice.

In 1971 Adolfas founded the Peoples’ Film Department at Bard College. In the years before his academic tenure, Mekas was an active writer, scholar, and filmmaker. He co-founded (along with his brother Jonas) and edited “Film Culture” Magazine from 1953-1976. His extensive filmography includes “Hallelujah the Hills” and “Going Home, ” a personal documentary about his journey to native country Lithuania, his first return since he and his brother survived the country’s WWII Nazi invasion. With the continued blessing of St. Tula, the patron saint of cinema, Mekas continues to teach film at Bard College in the Hudson River Valley where he lives with his wife Pola Chapelle.

CAMERALESS FILM WORKSHOP| EXPERIMENTA 2004
Conducted by no.w.here U.K
There is a familiar vocabulary of marks and images that characterise the cameraless film: scratched, drawn and painted shapes made directly on the filmstrip; hand tinting, shading and overdrawing on found footage as well as the use of Letratone, xerox imagery and the celebrated wings and petals of Stan Brakage’s film Mothlight. By looking at artists’ films that are synonymous with experimental animation from Oskar Fischinger, Hans Richter, Viking Eggeling, Man Ray, Len Lye and Stan Brakage, the participants engage in practical hands on experimentation exploring materials / ideas, drawing and painting directly onto the filmstrip. The workshop ends end with a screening of this collaborative film.
