What about Production? II

Artistic creation is irremediably bound to production. The relationship between the conceptualization of an artwork and the processes through which it takes form – be it material or immaterial –, is complex and worth investigating. Six years after a first edition of the talks titled “What About Production?”, we hence propose to review that same question in light of the current cultural and economic panorama.

Through a series of roundtable discussions gathering together international art professionals, the Talks will provide the space to debate and exchange ideas on contemporary modes of production, or the cluster of acknowledged practices and concepts that form a context within which the moving image is used and circulated.

While trying a definition of what production means today (the conceptualization of a work? the manufacturing? the preliminary idea? the final product? an individual act? a collective effort? the hybridization of disciplines and means?), the Talks will then look at the still slippery boundaries between artists’ films and cinema – and the related differences in terms of production and circulation -, and explore the role of artists, gallerists and collectors as producers.

Among the participating speakers will be  Hans Ulrich Obrist (Artistic Director, Serpentine Galleries, London), Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo(Founder and President, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin), Paola Ugolini(Curator, In Between Art Film, Rome), Maxa Zoller (Film curator, Art Basel and Artistic Director, International Women’s Film Festival, Cologne), Rä di Martino (Artist and filmmaker), Rose Cupit and Maggie Ellis (Manager and Head of FLAMIN, London), Haro Cumbusyan (Collector and Founder of Collectorspace, Istanbul, Turkey), Sandra Terdjman (Co-Founder, Council and Kadist), Laura Walde (Film Programmer, Winterthur International Short Film Festival and Ph.D. researcher University of Zurich ‘Exhibiting Film: Challenges of Format’), Hans Op de Beeck (Artist), Noor Afshan Mirza and Brad Butler (Artists), Monika Kerkmann (Director, Julia Stoschek Collection), Lisa Long (Curator, Julia Stoschek Collection), Barbara London (Independent curator), Marko Daniel (Director, Fundació Joan Miró), MASBEDO (Artists), Carolina Ciuti (LOOP Artistic Director), Llucià Homs (Director, Talking Galleries, Barcelona), Nimfa Bisbe (Chief curator and conservator, Fundación “la Caixa”), Cristina López (Director, MACBA Foundation) and Andreu Rodríguez (BEEP collection for electronic art).
