October 31 at ANX, Oslo: one-day conference and performance event


No longer bound to celluloid, film projector and the single-screen of the auditorium, cinema of today can be found everywhere—from digital devices and home theaters to architectural structures and geographical sites. Re:Placing the Cinematic looks at the novel possibilities for exploration of physical and virtual spaces this contemporary scenario opens up for. As demonstrated in recent art practices, cinematic constructions of space and place are currently reconfigured through practices such as live video, "mapping" techniques, site-specificity, and employment of 3D-effects. Bringing together scholars from the fields of art history, film history and media studies, the conference aims to historically, theoretically and conceptually place such recent tendencies within the larger trajectory of expanded cinema originated in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as earlier avant-garde and related practices. The conference is organized as part of the artistic research project “Re:place,” funded by the Norwegian National Artistic Research program, in collaboration with Atelier Nord, Academy of Fine Art, Oslo National Academy of the Arts, and IFIKK Dept. of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, University of Oslo.

Speakers: Arie Altena (Sonic Acts, V2_), Ina Blom (University of Oslo), Noam Elcott (Columbia University), Tom Gunning (University of Chicago), and Susanne Ø. Sæther (University of Oslo).

Evening program include performances by Greg Pope & Jon Wesseltoft (UK/NO) and Otolab (IT).
