Besides the Screen 2012

Conference: Goldsmiths College, University of London, 1-2 December
Workshops/Performances: Deckspace Media Lab, 29-30 November

With keynotes by Professor Janet Harbord (Queen Mary, University of London) and Dr. Charlotte Crofts (University of the West of England, Editorial Board Journal of Media Practice and JMP Screenworks

Following the success of the event organized in 2010, Goldsmiths College hosts a new edition of the interdisciplinary conference for all forms of cinema that exist beside and between screens.

Besides the Screen attempts to understand the continuing transformation of audiovisual media practices. The conference’s ever-expanding constellation of topics revolves around techniques of projection, the centrality of marginal processes, and the manifold systems of movie storage and transmission (as well as their possible materialities).

This second edition will take on a particularly reflexive character, reconfiguring traditional objects while exploring side-by-side theoretical and practical methods of academic research.

In this spirit, a two-day seminar will be coupled with week-long workshops taking place at the dek.spc.org media lab. During these workshops, participants will experiment with media art 'hacking' practices on moving images, as well as explore open video and active archiving methods.
