Long Story Short – kinema ikon: 50 years of continuous experiment

With Călin Man
Saturday, 12:00 – 14:00

October 10, 17, 24 and 31

reVoltaire-5, reVoltaire: App.0110, media installation, 2019

The story of the Kinema Ikon project is in itself a work in progress, a construction of lego pieces that always looks different depending on the chosen combinations. A project that resists, first of all, the four generations of authors who connected to their time and made possible today’s discussion about a continuous experiment. The course aims to present the Kinema Ikon experiments from 1970 to 2020: 16 mm film, mixed media, digital works on cd.rom and net.art, the series of hybrid installations in its own exhibition space and the group’s publications.
