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.

It acts as a form of reclamation by integrating films having received inadequate historical and critical recognition and placing these alongside films existing as accepted texts of the decade. This history challenges the problematic 'return to image' thesis, providing examples of written evidence and demonstrating how this has problematically perpetuated a flawed account of the decade. This is the first extensive overview of 1970s filmmaking, contextualizing films within broader aesthetic, theoretical and socio-political frameworks. The detailed textual and comparative analyses offer unique approaches to individual films, shedding light on technical, aesthetic and economic decisions informing filmmaking. As such, it provides a unique understanding of how experimental filmmaking grew from a small handful of films and filmmakers, at the start of the 1970s, to a veritable 'explosion' in filmmaking by the end of the decade"-- TROVE Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781349474912 Language: English Contents: Introduction -- 1.

A history of experimental film and video : from the canonical avant-garde to contemporary British practice / A.L. Rees
London: bfi Publishing, 2011.
Call No: 771 REE Author: Rees, A. L. Edition: 2nd Edition Source: UK Place: London Publisher: bfi Publishing PubDate: 2011 PhysDes: viii, 196 : ill. ; 25 cm. Subject: EXPERIMENTAL FILMS; VIDEO ART; ART CINEMA; AVANT-GARDE FILMS Summary: Avant-garde film is almost indefinable. It is in a constant state of change and redefinition. In his highly-acclaimed history of experimental film, A.L. Rees tracks the movement of the film avant-garde between the cinema and modern art (with its postmodern coda). But he also reconstitutes the film avant-garde as an independent form of art practice with its own internal logic and aesthetic discourse.
In this revised and updated edition, Rees introduces experimental film and video to new readers interested in the wider cinema, as well as offering a guide to enthusiasts of avant-garde film and new media arts. Ranging from Cézanne and Dada, via Cocteau, Brakhage and Le Grice, to the new wave of British film and video artists from the 1990s to the present day, this expansive study situates avant-garde film between the cinema and the gallery, with many links to sonic as well as visual arts.
The new edition includes a review of current scholarship in avant-garde film history and includes updated reading and viewing lists. It also features a new introduction and concluding chapter, which assess the rise of video projection in the gallery since the millennium, and describe new work by the latest generation of experimental film-makers. The new edition is richly illustrated with images of the art works discussed Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index. ISBN: 9781844576203 Contents: Pt. 1. The canonical avant-garde. Origins of the moving image (1780-1880). Photography. Art and the avant-garde: summary 1909-20. The cubists. Primitives and pioneers (1880-1915). Futurists. Abstract film. The comic burlesque.

AUSTRALIA; AUSTRALIAN CENTRE FOR THE MOVING IMAGE (ACMI); AESTHETICS; TECHNOLOGY AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENTS Summary: Interzone is specifically interested in arts practices in which the computer is the predominant medium, integrating and synthesising a range of diverse media. Its chronology is narrow and deals with works produced from the early 1990s to the present. Media arts have come to be regarded as the signature form of this period, the art of its time. But the discussion of media art is not exclusively an issue to do with emerging technologies and how artists use them. It also concerns the ways in which artists explore the social and cultural implications of the very technologies they are working with. The intervention of the computer has given rise to complex new forms of knowledge, disturbing new ways of thinking abut what it means to be alive in the age of advanced technology.

This study scrutinizes emotions and sensations surrounding mortality and longing. Its focus is on love, tenderness, and eroticism, on the undoing of the self in desire and loss, and on the pursuit of relations with a missing other. In dialogue with Judith Butler on greivability, and Giorgio Agamben on bare life, Emma Wilson traces connections between imaging of intimate losses and public acts of mourning in response to atrocity, the Shoah and Hurricane Katrina. The book lays out a series of sensitive new readings of works by Agnes Varda, Pedro Almodovar, Ingmar Bergman, Sophie Calle, and many others. Attending to images of tactility, to fine details of texture, light, and affect, it re-imagines the role of the sensuous in lens-based art.
