Podcast discussion on Exhibition 4
Is the body ghostly present in the technological use and representation? How can we embody the technology of video essays? How much technology guides the subject’s choices, and so displace our focus from the subject to society and its dynamics? But also: how much do the technological choices of the video essayist reveal her/his authorship?
Is a technological tool intrinsically open to unexpected uses? How important and destabilising is it to show the archaeology of media in video essays? Can videography as such be seen as a technology?
These and other questions punctuate the inspiring podcast discussion between the three curators of fourth exhibition of Filmexplorer’s Video Essay Gallery: Chloé Galibert-Laîné, Kevin B. Lee and Johannes Binotto.
