“Another cinema”, a term coined by Raymond Bellour, defines the parallel stories of cinema that materialize in contemporary art. Bellour wrote that in today’s art world, cinema “finds itself redistributed, transformed, imitated and reinstalled”. This “other cinema” situates the viewer as “dissolved, fragmented, shaken and intermittent”, inviting us to reconfigure both the viewer and the dominant history of cinema itself. Taking into account the ubiquitous practices of questioning cinema in modern and contemporary art, this program draws attention to films and videos by artists who reflect on the history of cinema and / or address the perceptual functions and socio-political aspects of the cinematographic system. .

From the appropriation of dominant film archives to the critical examination of film techniques, the 12 works by modern and contemporary artists presented in this program illustrate an alternative and highly self-reflective form of cinema. Following Erika Balsom’s conception of contemporary art as a potential “laboratory for cinema, a place where its social, technological and aesthetic history can be recovered and recycled”, they reconsider what cinema is (or was) and what he can do. Emphasizing the ideology that underlies the functioning of the film device and the technological exteriorization of memory and time, the works in this program expose the critical and aesthetic potentials of an “other cinema”, oscillating between white cube and black box.

Another cinema: devices and stories runs from September 6 to 20, 2021.

The program is designed to precede the first international symposium “The state of the moving imagewhich will take place on e-flux Video and Film from Friday to Sunday September 17 and 19, and will include six panels with presentations by Erika Balsom, Therese Castro, Sophie Cavoulacos, Ali cherri, Greg de Cuir Jr, Irmgard Emmelhainz, Lars Henrik Gass, Leo Goldsmith, Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, Olivier Hadouchi, Louis henderson, Chrissie Islands, Karrabing Film Collective, Toby Lee, Almudena Escobar Lopez, Pedro Neves Marques, Alison nguyen, Non citizen, Bahar Noorizadeh, Christina phoebe, Raqs Media Collective, The cinema commune of Rojava, Oleksiy Radynski, Julien ross, Stefanie Schulte Strathaus, Su Yu Hsin, Malena szlam, Anton Vidokle, and Yang beichen.
