**Besides the Screen Brazil 2015 International Conference**
~ The Methods & Materials of Curating ~
UFES, 23-25 November
USP / PUC, 26-28 November
The second edition of the Besides the Screen conference in Brazil focuses
on *The Methods and Materials of Curating*, highlighting the importance of
curatorial practices both to the work that *engages with* moving images as
well as to the one that *departs from *them.
Giving body to exhibitions, festivals, circuits and collections,
curatorship allows for the territorialization and historiography of the
movie, collaborating with the constitution of the time and space in which
images come into existence. In that sense, it can play a crucial role in
the development of cinema as a medium and a social technique.
Considering its intervention in defining the ways in which new modalities
of moving image are presented and old ones are preserved, would
curating be able
not only to ask what it will be of cinema in the next centuries, but also
to come up with answers to this question?
The conference gathers researchers, artists, archivists, independent and
institutional curators to discuss the possibilities of a cinema that
encompasses elements from slide projection and the recuperation of super8
film to computational imaging and generative audiovisual processes.
Keynote speakers: Thomas Elsaesser (University of Amsterdam), Jane Giles
(British Film Institute), Sarah Cook (University of Dundee) and Chris
Salter (University of Concordia).
