Call for Papers: Screening the Past: Special Issue (2010)
Cinema/Photography: Beyond Representation
Guest Editors: Des O’Rawe and Sam Rohdie
The development of new digital technologies and representational forms has revived interest in the relations between photography and cinema, an interest that is both creative and critical. Independent film-makers are availing themselves of alternative exhibition formats and spaces for their work (e.g. Multi-media installations, galleries, the internet, etc.), and moving image experimentation is now commonplace in the fields of contemporary fine art, design, music, and theatre. The writings of Bazin, Barthes, Metz, and Deleuze are being re-read in light of the aesthetic and institutional implications of digitalisation. A substantial body of work is now being devoted to such topics as: the movement of stillness, and vice versa; the expressive significance of still photographs in specific films; films that are about photography and/or
Particular photographers; photography that takes the cinema, particularly the cinematic apparatus as its subject matter; and, the film-making of photographers, and the photographic work of film-makers.
Screening the Past is seeking original, or substantially revised, and/or newly translated articles on the aesthetic and institutional relations between film, photography, and the visual arts. In particular, we are interested in writing that is attentive to cinematic forms and their reconfiguration within contemporary visual arts.
Please send 500 word abastracts/outline proposals to both editors by February 15, 2010.
