Ethnocineca is an anthropological work exhibition organized by students of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna in cooperation with the MASN-Austria association.
Originally initialized by the department itself and now having emancipated from in- to outside the university’s premises, the aims of Ethnocineca are to present different approaches to sociocultural media interventions.
Ethnocineca originates from and focuses on documentary as well as audiovisual anthropological films. It provides a platform for presentation and reflection of film/video, photography and other interactive media interventions with sociocultural or anthropological emphasis. The leading thought of the project is to show films made “by people for people”, showing their diversity as sociocultural, political and economic beings and different ways of organizing themselves as such.
Ethnocineca understands itself as an offer for all people working in the field of arts and culture to present their audiovisual works to a broad publicity, to open up new perspectives on areas of action and hence discuss and thematize those in public. Images as a means of displaying the singularities and particularities of intercultural communications are used to widen the scope for reflection and hence provide more than just a symbolic contribution to cultural understanding.
