Eye on Art Research Labs: Leiden University "Cinematic Reflections"

Eye on Art's Research Labs provide scope for a new generation of curators and artists to hone their skills. Students from different art academies and universities are asked to put together a programme featuring their own work and films (including remixes) from Eye’s collection. Research Labs do not follow a strict format and often result in a cultural crossover between film and other art forms.

The best-curated programme and the best work will be awarded by a student jury and a jury of Eye film professionals.

cinematic reflections

In our one-hour program Cinematic Reflections, we will investigate the filmic medium itself using both archival and self-generated images. To be able to do this, we decided to divide our program into four parts: audience, materiality, photography and framing. In the first part, audience, we will visually dissect the relation between cinema and audience, exploring the question of whether cinema can exist without an audience. In the second part, materiality, we will look at the changing nature of the materiality of cinema and its relation to the archive as a result of the shift from analogue to digital. In the third part, photography, we will explore the relationship between film and photography, between movement and stillness. In the fourth and last part, framing, we will challenge the boundaries of the filmic screen in order to question the conception of cinema as both passive and landscape-based. Ultimately, these four topics together will both explore and challenge our personal views on cinema.

This program was curated by students from the Master”s program in Film and Photographic Studies at Leiden University and includes films and clips from Eye”s film collection.
