[UPDATE] [SCMS 2016 CFP] Spaces of Spectatorship: Architectures of the Projected Image

full name / name of organization: 
Swagato Chakravorty / Yale University

The architecture of the moving and projected image has been at the center of this renewed focus on the dispositif. Scholarly accounts too often try to retroject works from this period into a genealogy rooted in the discourse of American Minimalist art (and related phenomenological concerns), or else recycle an older rhetoric of immersive spectatorship and theories of the spectacle.
