Audiovisual media programme
In keeping with the CASCA/IUAES inter-congress' theme there will be a programme of audiovisual works on the diverse implications of “movement,” from flows and frictions to displacements and disappearances. Ethnologists, folklorists, anthropologists, and representatives of related disciplines (e.g. urban planning, geography, design) and institutions (museums, archives etc.) as well as filmmakers and other artists (e.g. photographers, sound designer), were encouraged to submit films, photographs, audio works, installations and web-based formats. Special attention was paid to the specific potential of audiovisual work for the congress’ topic by focusing on material, bodily, sensorial or spatial dimensions, tacit knowledge or other non-linguistic perspectives of movement, and also its blockages and absence. Films and other audiovisual media do more than represent – they are processes of creation that are epistemological, analytic, conceptual and political. Therefore, we are not only interested in classically shaped and linear narratives but also those works which focus on the conceptual value of audiovisual material in the wider sense. In order to be able examine this research and its contributions to the CASCA/IUAES theme, we offer, in addition to the possibility to screen films and other audiovisual works, a space for open question-and-answer discussion.
The programme can be seen here. It will run over two sessions of 90 minutes, allowing time for Q&A's with the creators of these media presentations.
