PAF recommends conference Cinema Live!, organized by the Centre of Audiovisual Studies FAMU (FAMU CAS) during the Signal! festival (17 to 20 October 2013, the City of Prague) that will be held already this Friday at Smetanovo nábřeží (FAMU building), Prague. The conference will present various views on the cinema through fine art, VJing, video mapping and performance. Among the speakers will be e.g. members of PAF team and the research project Mediabáze.cz.
Is the live cinema phenomenon as defined by many European curators and theoreticians in the middle of the past decade still alive? Are we able to differentiate it from VJing and expanded cinema? And how are the cinematography features used in the contemporary Czech art? And is cinema still a place where something interesting can happen? Various aspects of this topic will be introduced in forms of short contributions from the positions of curators, scholars, artists and academicians.
The conference is organized within the framework of the research project Mediabáze.cz and will be held in Czech language.
