Taking Measures. Usages of Format in Film and Video Art

Video Symposium in cooperation with Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst

Online now!

The international video symposium fosters a dialog between art and research. Filmmakers, artists, researchers and scholars enter into creative and experimental conversation with each other about the usages and understandings of formats in film and video art.
The focus is placed on artistic media and practices in which the technologies and ideologies of measurement, their many validity claims and areas of application are addressed. The title of the symposium—Taking Measures—should be understood in its double meaning: as a reference to the practices of measurement related to the use of artistic media as well as to the political potential of power and resistance that results from these practices. With contributions by and conversations with Fabrice Aragno, Kris Dittel, Burcu Dogramaci, Monika Dommann, Carla Gabriela Engler, Omer Fast, Philipp Fleischmann, Ursula Frohne, Dani Gal, Alexandra Gelis, David Joselit, Thomas Julier, Fabienne Liptay, Jacqueline Maurer, Alexandra Navratil, Warren Neidich, Volker Pantenburg, Hannes Rickli, Benoît Turquety, Marijke van Warmerdam, Clemens von Wedemeyer, Laura Walde, Haidee Wasson, Eyal Weizman.
The video symposium is hosted by Fabienne Liptay, Laura Walde and Carla Gabriela Engler (University of Zurich) in cooperation with Nurja Ritter and Nadia Schneider Willen (Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst). It is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation as part of the project «Exhibiting Film: Challenges of Format».
