MONTAGE

— Methodologies of film and video art montage

Thursday 22 November 2018, 12 pm

The narratives and aesthetics of film and video art depend to a great extent on the editing methodologies used in the production process. Montage often defines the genre and the type of “instrument” of knowledge that is produced. So what are the narrative consequences of unfolding montage into space? Does film have mechanisms to integrate these consequences in the final device displayed in a big screen? Or is it the other way around and the unfolding into space allows the incorporation of some of the effects obtained by the structured narratives of film? This meeting explores the notion of montage understood as the juxtaposition of different audio-visual moving elements both in studio and in the physical space where the work is displayed.
