Podcast discussion on Exhibition 1

The three curators Chloé Galibert-Laîné, Kevin B. Lee and Johannes Binotto discuss the three video essays that they have proposed for the first exhibition of Filmexplorer’s Video Essay Gallery, “Home Positions”.

Among the topics of the discussion: home as the uncanny place of defamiliarization, discomfort in embodiment and memory, trusting the experimental and amateur approach as revelatory, video essay as post-cinematic experience, video-essay as opening the potentialities of cinema, video essay as another form of temporality and the role of community in defining video essay.
