SUPERLUX Professional Practice Seminar: Editioning Film and Video

Posted on November 22nd, 2016 by LUX Scotland      

Monday 5 December, 2-4pm
CCA Clubroom, Glasgow
Free to SUPERLUX members, but ticketed via Eventbrite

Led by writer, critic and lecturer Erika Balsom, with Katrina Brown (Director, The Common Guild) and María Palacios Cruz (Deputy Director, LUX).

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.
