Location: england


Exercising ideas in and around artists’ film
Media Art Bath presents a new monthly screening of artists’ film in which invited curators will present and discuss a programme (or single piece) of moving image work.

PROGAMME I: Greetings comrades, the image has now changed its status
FREE, Booking recommended

Amanda Beech, Harun Farocki, Beatrice Gibson, Maryam Jafri, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Cerith Wyn Evans

What is the status of the image today? Where does the image start and stop? Characterised by the speed of its dissemination, the image might be understood as
the transmission of digital information, as a fleeting visual impression, as affective experience, as an important factor in the gaining of knowledge, expanded, compressed, archival, educative, celebratory and informalÂ… It might be all or none of these. Contingent. Staged. A restitution. A refusal.

The MAB Film Exercise is a place for discussing art and the ideas it generates, please join us! For further information about the programme visit
