When Sheldon Renan and Gene Youngblood coined the term Expanded Cinema at the end of the 1960s, they were interested in a revision of the cinematic conventions. Addressing specifically questions concerning the spaces of film (the imaginary spaces, the depicted spaces, as well as the architectural environments) made clear what kind of impact the cinematic apparatus had on our ways of watching films. Artists and critics began to critically approach the environment and technology of the filmic experience and ask how this assemblage was influencing our perception and our ways of thinking.
The screening and workshop by Marc Glöde will take a closer look at this development – its historic implications as well as its relevance for today. It will combine some outstanding artistic film works with remarkable examples that offered different spatial experiences.
