Expanded Cinema

VALIE EXPORT has been developing Expanded Cinema actions since 1968 which rely equally on an active screen and an active audience, and open up the field of vision through technical resources in such a way that both cinema and the medium itself as an independent entity are dissolved. “Expanded Cinema, the expanded film, was also about using the medium to represent and break up power structures, as they said back then: to decode, to deconstruct.” VALIE EXPORT, “Austria im Rosennetz”, Der Standard, 18.10.1996. The Expanded Cinema 1 showcase assembles materials about cinematic, actionist, and technological reflections on the expanded concept of the screen and provides insights on this artistic field.
