RCA Moving Image Studio - Seminar Series 2012/13 - Session 4 - Artists' Documentary and Doc-Fiction
This seminar looks at moving image artists who draw on the lived world and produce ostensibly factual images. The very term documentary produces anxiety in the world of contemporary art, largely because it connotes television with all of its rhetorical devices and truncated narratives. This session looks instead at crystalline uses of factual images: documentary time-images, diary films, drift films, the concept of a 'minor cinema', use of falsification, non-human subject matter (animal, architectural, and so on), what we consider to be a good or poor representation, and whether we should represent at all.
