A series of lectures dedicated to Italian artist film and video from the ’60s through to the present day on the occasion of the artapes season

Four seminars with four different academics exploring a number of themes and aspects of the relationship between artists and moving images, from the historical-artistic context to the political and performative point of view, from contaminations between the cinematic and the electronic media and through to the found-footage procedure.

An expanding section of contemporary film draws inspiration from its past to create unexpected visions and new experiences of spectatorial participation: widespread practices that make of collage, ready-mades, and re-editing the focus of a vast recycling of forgotten memories.
In the third seminar we shall be meeting the film historian Marco Bertozzi to discuss re-mediated image through migrant narrations, featuring video art, artist film and documentary experimentation capable of overturning the primary meaning, reactivating the imaginable and, above all, the unimaginable.
