Chaotic Formats: Video, Moving Images, Cinematic Displays

Monday, October 23, 2017 - 1:27pm
Journal of Chinese Cinemas
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

In postsocialist China, the boundaries between the practice of artmaking and filmmaking, and the spaces of contemporary art and cinema, have rarely been distinct. Instead, artistic practices in China are characterized by a chaos of formats, an ambivalence about presentational modes and an implicit or explicit acknowledgement of mainstream representational and presentational formats. Moving image art has become a potent analytic and practical category for art history and film scholars to examine the alternative production, exhibition and funding models that facilitate the migration of filmmakers into the spaces of art and artists into the spaces of film.
