Art film is undergoing a revolution. Artists are producing feature-length films that are genre-bending and format-defying. The cinema of Eric Baudelaire, Fiona Tan, Pierre Bismuth, Murakami Takahashi, Ra di Martino and many other speak a new film language that complicates our relation to the screen. But whose screen is it? Too unconventional for the festival circuit, too durational for the gallery, too audience-hungry for the elitist museum – this talk will assess the crisis in distribution and spectatorship of the new artists’ films. With historical expertise and artistic imagination the panel will project a future vision of a hybrid space and a new institutional framework.
