For the past fifty years, the love/hate affair between the two has triggered vital aesthetic, social and political responses that constantly renew the way we understand our age. This book traces the story from early spatial experiments with film and video technologies to the current widespread use of projected images in museums and galleries. Why has there been a turn to the cinematic in contemporary art? What happens to the moving image when it shifts from the black box to the white cube, when cinema is exhibited? How does this challenge the traditional mediums of film, painting and sculpture? 'Art and the Moving Image' gathers together key texts including new, translated and previously unavailable essays by eminent writers and theorists including Giorgio Agamben, Beatriz Colomina, Serge Daney, Rosalind Krauss, Maurizio Lazzaratto and Peter Wollen. It offers an essential introduction to the complex field of art and the projected image for both students and general readers." -- Publisher's website.

Many scholars have linked the origins of the discipline to late-1960s developments in the academy such as structuralist theory and student protest. Yet this collection reveals the broader material and institutional forces—both inside and outside of the university—that have long shaped the field. Beginning with the first investigations of cinema in the early twentieth century, this volume provides detailed examinations of the varied social, political, and intellectual milieus in which knowledge of cinema has been generated. The contributors explain how multiple instantiations of film study have had a tremendous influence on the methodologies, curricula, modes of publication, and professional organizations that now constitute the university-based discipline. Extending the historical insights into the present, contributors also consider the directions film study might take in changing technological and cultural environments. -- Publisher description Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780822342892 Contents: The Academy and Motion Pictures / Lee Grieveson, Haidee Wasson

ACADEMY; OTTINGER, ULRIKE; BLUE (UK, Derek Jarman, 1993); MEPRIS, LE (FR/IT, Jean-Luc Godrad, 1963) Summary: "Every film is a foreign film," Atom Egoyan and Ian Balfour tell us in their introduction to Subtitles. How, then, to translate the experience of film - which, as Egoyan says, makes us "feel outside and inside at the same time"? Taking subtitles as their point of departure, the thirty-six contributors to this unique collection consider translation, foreigness and otherness in film culture. Their discussions range from the mechanics and aesthetics of subtitles to the xenophobic reaction to translation, to subtitles as a metaphor for the distance and intimacy of film.
