DANUBE TELELECTURE: Remixing Cinema: Lev Manovich / SeanCubitt

by Martin Frericks last modified Oct 15, 2007 11:09 AM

The DEPARTMENT FOR IMAGE SCIENCE presents: REMIXING CINEMA: FUTURE AND PAST OF MOVING IMAGES. Danube TeleLecture #4: Thursday, Nov 8, 2007 - 7pm CET Live debate at the MUMOK in Vienna. By Lev MANOVICH, internationally renowned media and art theorist (Russia/USA) and Sean CUBITT, expert in film and media theory (Great Britain/Australia)

Cinema as a visual phenomenon has accelerated increasingly over the last decades. Technical achievements at the material level like new participatory models driven by the melting of Internet, Databases, TV and Cinema are setting new standards and bringing a new dynamic to the black-box of the movie theater. Remixing, Coding, Remapping, and Recombination of visual manifestations are revolutionizing the narrative form of film - new societal phenomena, like the VJ scene, generate immersive viewing spaces and new forms of moving image distribution. The domain of video, film, computer and net-based installations stands on the threshold of a material revolution: do they bring a new aesthetic? Revolutionary possibilities in camera and projection techniques offer increasingly faster development cycles that also allow for innovative image languages. New historical perspectives of the cinematic revue coalesce with innovative interpretations of our visual consumer culture and foretell future developments. What can be expected ... what are the consequences?
