II International Film Seminar

What can an image do?

International Cinema Seminar

Tabakalera International Center for Contemporary Culture presents its second International Film Seminar: four days of sharing films, texts, processes, audiovisual works, discussions and exchanges on both sides of the screen. Like in our first edition, we take our summer exhibition, this year the solo of the French artist and filmmaker Eric Baudelaire, as the departing point. We invited curator Aily Nash to draw an itinerary and propose a series of films, filmmakers and contemporary artists whose work will allow us to reflect upon the historical, political and personal aspects of the image itself.

 

Que peut une image?
¿Qué puede una imagen?
Zer egin dezake irudi batek?
What can an image do?

 

This phrase, used by philosopher Pierre Zaoui when reflecting upon Baudelaire’s practice, is a starting inquiry for the seminar. The moving image practices presented in the seminar investigate the complex relationship between the image and political and historical narratives. The question of what the image is capable of doing is at the heart of the formal experimentation seen in the works. These artists’ approaches to media consider the production and employment of images to reveal both its power and its highly malleable nature.

The seminar presents the works and practices of the following guests: Eric Baudelaire, Naeem Mohaiemen, María Palacios Cruz, belit sag, Susana de Sousa Dias, and Akram Zaatari.
