In association with Sound/Image/Culture.
Carlos Casas is coming to join us for our next collective session and a masterclass. The workshop focuses on exploring other strategies and formats for the development and presentation of narrative audiovisual works, based on an expanded notion of ethnographical research and knowledge gathering practices and its experimental dissemination. Giving a special attention to the new physiological turn in contemporary art practices and scientific research based film, as well as focusing on an open and circular cross-cultural exploration methodology. Subverting the visual hegemony and acknowledging the expansive and physiological power of Sound.
The participants will be encouraged to experiment with new presentation strategies and experiment with new dissemination methods in order to oxygenate their current projects and expand their objective and contextual research.
