WORLD OF ART
Laboratorium of Curatorial Practices
Season 11: 2007/08
Seminar – Workshop No.4
23rd June – 11th July, 2008
|The workshop’s objective is to introduce workshop participants with theory and practice of video essay in the field of culture and art.Within the frame of the workshop, the participants work on all the phases of the making of video essay. They shoot a selected event, write a script, choose the interlocutors and finally edit the essay and put music and titles on it.Compared to other media, the advantage of a video essay on a certain visual arts event (exhibition, installation etc.) lies in that it possesses the capability to present the event to spectators either in part or in its entirety, with the possibility to present at once the authors, curators and others involved. The textual part is therefore usually brief: the information, opinion, or comment should be neither extensive nor verbally saturated. The way the event is shot is however important, as well as how we choose the images out of the recorded material; how we combine them with statements and off-texts; in other words, what is the relation between the picture and the script in shaping up the essay.
Subject of the video essay is Visiting Artist, final project of Laboratorium of Curatorial Practices, within which this year’s participants hosted Romanian artist Mircea Nicolae at Metelkova mesto between May 27th – June 27th.
