CCA Clubroom, Glasgow

The curator and writer Dan Kidner leads a Masterclass reflecting on his recent writing and exhibitions exploring the histories and historiographies of film and video’s radical past. Kidner will discuss the politics of UK filmmaking collectives from the 1970s such as the Berwick Street Film Collective and the London Women’s Film Group, the evolving distributive strategies developed for independent film and video, internationally, through the 1970s and 1980s, and the accommodation of this work by the institutions of contemporary art.

Dan Kidner was previously Director of Picture This, Bristol (2011–13), and Director of City Projects, London (2004–11).

SUPERLUX Masterclass with nowMomentnow: DIY Filmmaking Tactics

Posted on June 20th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Saturday 1 July, 2.00-5.00pm
CCA Clubroom, Glasgow
Free, ticketed via Eventbrite

Artists Liz Rosenfeld and Imogen Heath, co-founder of the Berlin-based moving image collective nowMomentnow, explore DIY filmmaking tactics in a masterclass presented as part of Rosenfeld’s current residency with LUX and the Goethe Institut. They will present their collaborative work and show excerpts of previous films, discussing production methods and more broadly situating their practice in terms of community building and DIY strategies for making video.

Following their presentation, they will lead a two-hour collaborative video-making activity, where participants will work together to make short video portraits for a ‘video time capsule’, intersecting nowMomentnow’s love for moving image and performance. Their experimental approach to video production uses discursive, non-linear tactics to reconfigure ideas of family and queer labour.

By putting nowMomentnow’s video-making strategies and techniques into practice, participants will aim to collectively envision what the group desires to ‘record, leave behind, bury, compost, burn, destroy, transmit and transform for a queer future/present or a completely alternative space-time continuum’.

Participants are encouraged to bring fun clothing and makeup to use as costumes, objects ‘to leave for the future’ or use as props. DIY green-screen tools will be used and camera equipment provided. No previous knowledge of video production is necessary to take part.

nowMomentnow began as an experiment between friends to disrupt prevalent modes of story-telling and art-making. Working with very little resources, DIY tactics, feminist and queer discourse, an aspiration to build community as an alternative narrative of content-production, and sustainable labour and art practices, nMn has made music videos, performances, films and installation work, as well as hosted events and film productions in Berlin and internationally.

SUPERLUX Workshop with Liz Rosenfeld: Feeling Seen: laughing.crying.silence.

Posted on April 19th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Wednesday 28 June, 10.00am-5.00pm
Tramway, Glasgow
Free, ticketed via Eventbrite

Join Berlin-based artist and current Goethe at LUX Resident, Liz Rosenfeld for an intense, physical workshop that aims to share a working practice that is central to her research. She describes this methodology (learned from dancers and choreographers Sigal Zouk and Jared Gradinger) as ‘a beautiful experience in emotional threshold crossing, togetherness and collectivity’. Her practice utilises film, video and live performance to convey a sense of past and future histories.

Rosenfeld is invested in concepts of how history can be queered and experienced through the moment and ways in which it is lived and remembered. She explores how we identify ourselves with in/out community and social poly-relationship configurations.

Workshop participants will collaborate and support one another to laugh for 1.5 hours, cry for 1.5 hours, and sit in silence for 1.5 hours. This will be followed by a group discussion about the temporality of collectivity, endurance, inner manifestations of self, and how this practice can enable participants to feel ‘seen’ and ‘unseen’.

This workshop is a safe space for queer LGBTQI, non-binary/non-gender conforming identified people. Everyone is welcome, but please come with this in mind.

SUPERLUX Masterclass with Deborah Stratman: Tactical Audio and a Passively Amplified Ramble 

Posted on January 29th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Saturday 18 March, 2–5pm 
UWS project space, CCA Glasgow (meet in the CCA foyer)
Free to SUPERLUX members, ticketed via Eventbrite

Programmed for Glasgow Short Film Festival 2017.

Artist and filmmaker Deborah Stratman leads a masterclass and walk about the politicised relationship between audio and public space, exploring how sound can disturb, camouflage, animate and construct environments. We will take a look at historic precedents of sonic surveillance, subterfuge and control, followed by a DIY construction session, where we’ll outfit ourselves with passive amplifiers and set forth on an aural stroll.

Stratman is a Chicago-based artist and filmmaker interested in landscapes and systems. Much of her work points to the relationships between physical environments and human struggles for power and control that play out on the land. Recent projects have addressed freedom, expansionism, surveillance, sonic warfare, public speech, ghosts, sinkholes, levitation, propagation, orthoptera, raptors, comets and faith. She has exhibited internationally at venues including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Centre Pompidou; Hammer Museum; Mercer Union; Witte de With; the Whitney Biennial and festivals including Sundance, Viennale, CPH/DOX, Oberhausen, Ann Arbor, Full Frame, Rotterdam and Berlinale. Stratman is the recipient of Fulbright, Guggenheim and USA Collins fellowships, a Creative Capital grant and an Alpert Award. She lives in Chicago where she teaches at the University of Illinois.

SUPERLUX Reading Group: Alienation and VR

Posted on January 28th, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Alienation and VR – abandoning reality to claim the future
Thursday 16 March, 2–4pm
CCA Clubroom, CCA Glasgow
Free to SUPERLUX members, ticketed via Eventbrite

Alienation and VR is a SUPERLUX Reading Group programmed by artists Dennis and Debbie Club (D&D) for Glasgow Short Film Festival 2017.

This reading group will provide an introduction to ‘homebrew’ Virtual Reality (VR) methods and will consider how a DIY VR scene might be created. Through group readings of the xenofeminist manifesto by the Laboria Cuboniks collective (2015) and Donna Haraway’s A Cyborg Manifesto (1984), D&D will consider the possibilities of a critical artistic VR practice that can branch into the cultural and political.

D&D work digitally with open-source software, creating CGI animations, video installations and VR apps. Their latest VR work premieres at this year’s festival and showcases their first glimpses into the virtual, a work that began with an offer to build new VR environments for artists Stephanie Mann and Beagles & Ramsay. D&D aim to extend the possibilities of this new technology beyond ‘their own alienation’ and reclaim VR from the corporate world and consider how to repurpose it as a tool for artistic practice.

D&D understand that ‘by rejecting nature, the virtual has yet the chance to open up access to a different reality, a common alien domain. VR is a new artistic medium with the potential to brand creeping normality as the anxiety inducing agent of boredom and stagnation that we rarely dare to admit that it is.’

During the reading group participants will also have the opportunity to experience one of D&D’s new VR environments.

Posted on January 21st, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Friday 24 Feb – Saturday 25 Feb, 11am–5pm
Seminar Room, Glasgow School of Art, Reid Building
Free for SUPERLUX members, ticketed via Eventbrite

Anja Kirschner will introduce approaches to screenwriting outside of conventional formats and how to tailor them for your own moving image projects. The focus will be on expanded narrative structures, adaptation and appropriation, using examples from her own work as well as that of other artists, directors and writers, including Yvonne Rainer, Emily Wardill, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Alain Robbe-Grillet and Kathy Acker.

This practical and theoretical workshop is designed for artists working with the moving image and experimental filmmakers who want to develop screenwriting as an integral part of their practice.

Anja Kirschner is an artist whose films draw on factual, literary and pop-cultural sources and deal with materiality, digitality and narrativity and their share in the (de)formation of subjectivities and political agency. She is the recipient of the 2011 Jarman Award and her films have been widely exhibited and screened internationally, including at Secession, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Tate Modern, the Berlinale, the BFI London Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.

SUPERLUX Professional Practice Seminar: Editioning Film and Video

CCA Clubroom, Glasgow
Free to SUPERLUX members, but ticketed via Eventbrite

Led by writer, critic and lecturer Erika BalsamKatrina Brown (Director, The Common Guild) and Nicole Yip ( Director, LUX Scotland).

What is the limited edition and how does it function as a distribution model in artists’ moving image? In this seminar, we will look back at the history of the limited edition and trace how it has become an increasingly central part of the contemporary distribution ecology. We will explore its interactions with other forms of distribution (such as the rental model and bootlegging), its benefits and its limitations, and its political and practical stakes.

Erika Balsom is senior lecturer in Film Studies and Liberal Arts at King’s College London, specializing in the study of the moving image in art. She is the author of Exhibiting Cinema in Contemporary Art (2013) and the co-editor of Documentary Across Disciplines (2016). Her next book, After Uniqueness: A History of Film and Video Art in Circulation, is forthcoming from Columbia University Press in 2017. She is a frequent contributor to Artforum and Sight and Sound, and has published widely in academic journals, including Screen, Discourse, and Cinema Journal.

This event forms part of LUX Scotland’s ongoing series of SUPERLUX Professional Practice Seminars. These regular events are designed to open out niche and opaque aspects of the artist moving image sector, such as distribution, funding and pitching, by bringing in industry experts and creating a responsive, discursive environment for learning. This event is for SUPERLUX members only. LUX Scotland’s membership programme is free and easy to join, simply sign up now to become a member.

Event: Defaced, hidden, stolen, crushed, chopped, pierced: SUPERLUX Reading Group with artist Jamie Crewe

Wednesday 23 November, 12 – 4pm
Collective, Edinburgh
Free (Ticketed via Eventbrite)

This event is for SUPERLUX members only, however, LUX Scotland’s membership programme is free and easy to join, simply sign up now to become a member.

‘Defaced, hidden, stolen crushed, chopped, pierced’ is a SUPERLUX Reading Group programmed by artist Jamie Crewe for Edinburgh Artists’ Moving Image Festival. Across the afternoon Jamie will lead collective readings of texts from the blog ‘We Want Truth Goldsmiths’, feminist scholar Sara Ahmed, poet and scholar Anne Carson, and historian James Fredal. Topics will range from responses to institutional sexual harassment made this year, to non-verbal rhetoric in ancient Greece, to the gendering of sound and voice. These readings will be augmented by a screening of Billie Whitelaw performing Samuel Beckett’s Not I and materials for crafting curse tablets. Jamie hopes this will lead the group to a varied contemplation of the ways protest and expression might be made by disempowered people using tools that are defaced, stolen, hidden, crushed, chopped or pierced.

The group will read the texts together out loud, so no reading prior to the day is necessary, though the texts are available if you would feel more comfortable reading through before hand. It will accommodate a small, intimate and contributory group of 12-15 participants, so please only reserve a ticket if you are able to commit to the whole afternoon.

 

Some of the texts used in this reading group discuss sexual harassment, with no descriptions of specific experiences. For more information please contact LUX Scotland scotland@lux.org.uk
