FILM AS A SOCIAL ART: CONTEMPORARY MOVING IMAGES AND SOCIAL PRACTICE
With Josh Azzarella, Karl Erickson, My Barbarian, Stephanie Sinclair
College Art Association, New York Conference
Panel and Film/Video Screening | February 16, 2013
A play off of Amos Vogel’s seminal avant-garde film anthology, Film as a Subversive Art (1974), this program explores the function of film and video in prescribing meaning as it positions this affective medium as an attempt to increase a collective understanding of the world. The panel and program at the College Art Association’s February 2013 conference in New York will look at film and video works that inscribe a documentary approach (often co-mingling fact with fantasy) in the post-9/11 landscape.
