SYMPOSIUM: COMPARING EXPERIMENTAL CINEMAS 18 – 19 December 2014
Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology and Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM), University of Westminster, in collaboration with Experimenta India, present ‘Comparing Experimental Cinemas’, an international symposium on experimental moving image practices.
‘Comparing Experimental Cinemas’ inaugurates a British Academy-funded research project which proposes to map histories and modes of artists’ moving image across localities in Asia and beyond, and to theorize the regionality of experimental moving image practices. This symposium also intends to facilitate the establishing of a network of exchange and support among practitioners and researchers, who are largely, but not exclusively, based in the Asia-Pacific region.
The symposium consists of two days of illustrated talks and screening programmes by academics, curators, artists, festival directors and researchers of experimental and avant garde film from India, Indonesia, Japan, Hongkong, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, and the UK, who will be coming together for the first time to present and discuss the historical and contemporary context of experimental cinema in Asia.
