COOP ~ Curating Positions: Bodies and Antibodies in Cinema from Month to Month

Seminar 1: 14-16 November 2020

Saturday’s seminar will be led by Marwa Arsanios and Leon Filter who will be present in Oldebroek and Leire Vergara who will be online. The three lead tutors will first introduce their practices focusing on their positions in relation to the main coop question “Bodies and Antibodies in cinema.

We will carry on the day with the participating students’ presentations who will be asked to introduce one work that relates directly or indirectly to our main coop question and close of the day with a a student-led walk.

On Sunday we will transform our class room into a Camera Obscura and use it for an exercise that will focus on students’ propositions for body parts in relation to the cinema-machine, in order to think how we can build a new „incoherent“ body out of many parts. In the evening we will have another student-led walk.

On Monday, with theory tutor Grant Watson, we will screen a film and discuss a text of his choice.
