Keep an Eye IP // Perspectives on (Artistic) Research in and through Cinema

A two hour event for professionals on the use of artistic research in/through cinema.

Nfa a0poster v01 0

With the Master of Film we propose that we as filmmakers invent and explore different approaches to research. Approaches can be playful, inventive, at times unexpected and mostly rooted in practise. We do believe that the methods, insights and outcomes of our research could be relevant for the development of the field of film and for other disciplines.

This event functions as a practical investigation of these statements. It is a moment of exchange: How can artistic research in and through cinema be relevant to the field of cinema and other fields, and vice versa? Could we build bridges between artistic and scientific research?

On the basis of two exemplary projects two panels of film experts, curators and social scientists will discuss specific methods of working and share insights into the exchange between their research and practises. By doing so we aim to uncover similarities and differences in approaches and gain insight into the ways these different fields relate to and nourish one another.

Opening Up The Archive

The first panel focuses on the ways filmmakers and scientists work with archives and create structures or patterns to organise and activate archival footage within different contexts. Filmmakers Bram Loogman and Pablo Nunez Palma, makers of Eye Filmmuseums first Robot Employee, will engage in conversation with artist and filmmaker Joost Rekveld and Mark-Paul Meyer, senior curator of Eye Filmmuseum. They will discuss their different approaches to opening up the archive and/or using AI and the challenges these approaches bring along.

Performing Work

In the second panel, theater director and filmmaker Agnese Cornelio shares excerpts from her newest film Fondata Sul Lavoro. These excerpts function as a starting point for a joint conversation between Agnese Cornelia with, amongst others, editor Menno Boerema on the role of the performance, the physicality and gesture of re-activating memories of migrant workers and the innovative approach Agnese has to filmmaking.

The moderator of the evening is Eyal Sivan.
