LOOP Studies is a think tank platform aimed at reflecting on the historical trajectory of and current trends in moving art practices. In gathering together international art professionals, the Studies result in a series of talks, professional meetings and workshops and constitute both a space for shared discussion and professional encounters.
Expanding on the main theme of the festival, this year’s edition of the Talks will focus on the still-debated relationship between artists’ films and cinema. Spanning those practices that have been variously identified as “expanded cinema”, “cinema of exhibition” or “gallery film”, the debates will address the encounter or conflation between the two industries and question whether or not they could coexits in the same ecosystem. The programme will shape according to three main lines of investigation:
Among the participating speakers will be Erika Balsom, Raymond Bellour, Sabine Breitwieser, Filipa César, David Claerbout, Jacqui Davies, Antje Ehmann, Gabriela Galcerán, Malcolm Le Grice, Anthony McCall, Ani Molnár, Gloria Moure, Anthony Reynolds, Stefanie Schulte Strathaus, Christine Van Assche
Tickets and Register: Tickets to the whole programme of Talks are 90 euros and can be purchased here. Please note, the session have limited availability.
The professional meetings are a series of closed door sessions, which have the objective to offer a space for professionals to connect, formulate new ideas, exchange knowledge and debate common interests affecting the artistic community.
