Wunderkino ("wonder-cinema") are moving images that ignite our curiosity and engagement, and help us to rethink questions of creativity, complexity, rarity and the multiple uses and understandings we might find in amateur and non-commercial films.
The long history of the modern seems to stress that modernity was a privilege of Western rationality, disseminated from a European centre across the imaginary waiting rooms of history. Yet, the markers of what was hailed as the sign of Western advancement – industrialization, secularization and rationalization – have been consistently questioned over the past decade as indicators of universal validity and modernity itself reconceived beyond Western provincialism.

The last decade has produced a definition of Late Modernism as an array of aesthetic practices united by a departure from the hallmarks of early and high modernism. "Late Modernism," as defined by texts such as Fredric Jameson's A Singular Modernity and Tyrus Miller's Late Modernism, takes shape as a program aimed at revising modernist practices of formal and ideological innovation originally designed to generate critical distance from the dominant social norms, political trends and popular-cultural modalities of early twentieth-century Euro-America.
