Watch the LOOP Talks 2016

— A four day forum on the sill debated relationship between video art and cinema.

The Talks are now available to view on our video channel.

Expanding on the main theme of the festival, this year’s edition of the Talks focused on the still-debated relationship between video art and cinema. The programme shaped according to three main lines of investigation:

  • Exhibiting Cinema, or the eternal debate on how to better display artists’ films and videos in the gallery space, relate with cinematic codes and implement new curatorial practices;
  • Modes of Film Practice, or the “cluster of historically bound institutions, practices and concepts that form a context within which cinematic media are used”* and that can be deployed to understand avant-garde and experimental filmmaking as well as artists’ films;
  • Artists in Transition, or a study of those creative practices that sit on the fence between video art and cinema.
