Interface Cultures at Film Forum Festival
Curated by Davide Bevilacqua and Vincenzo Estremo
Villa Manin di Passariano
Ala Postica Ovest / Ex Accademia
20th March - 19th April 2015
Unmade displays is an interactive media art exhibition, produced by Interface Cultures, department of the Kunstuniversitaet Linz (Austria), within the Film Forum Festival.
Unmade displays will be part of the section of Film Forum Festival Cinema & Contemporary Visual Art. The show deals with the cinematic exhibition and the relation between man and displays, both in a theoretical and a curatorial perspective.
The artists will present a series of works that stress out the idea behind the cinematic dispositif, exploring the conceptual, relational and communicative possibilities of film, video, communication of information, vision and screen.
Institutional cinema is not the only possibility of making film. Film Forum is concerned with the research and reflections that force the borders of traditional cinema. This exhibition will therefore investigate the cultural and social possibilities of implementing the limits of cinema. It explores the contemporary status of the film within the presence of new media, interfaces and digital culture.
FilmForum is an international festival devoted to cinema and the contemporary visual arts that brings together scientific research, the dissemination of culture, and exhibition shows. From the very beginning FilmForum has aimed at discovering and developing the most stimulating and innovative artistic areas and research fields (including videogame studies, postcinema, porn studies, film heritage).
