Recensies en Artikelen

"Erika Balsom's Exhibiting Cinema in Contemporary Art represents a significant attempt from the field of rilm studies to remedy the neglect of this important strand in visual culture. ... Given its challenging and unstable object of study, Exhibiting Cinema is a book of great merit and relevance." -- Paolo Magagnoli, Senses of Cinema, March 2015

"This book is one I have been hoping to encounter for quite a while. It is rich in theoretical reflections as well as critical analyses of works, and makes a very strong case for a new form of art and a new form of cinema in one. It is theoretically complex and elegantly written. And due to its rich theory-analysis intertwinements and historical insights, it spans, rather than the 1990-2010 as the author suggests, the entire history if cinema from the vantage point of today’s art.” -- Mieke Bal, Professor of Theory of Literature and a founding director of the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA)

"Erika Balsom’s Exhibiting Cinema in Contemporary Art is our first sustained critical history of one of the most important dimensions of contemporary art: the encounter of the cinema with the museum, the art gallery, and new practices of moving image installation. It is also a deep examination of the persistence of a certain memory of cinema that persists as a subject of critical re-examination by the most fascinating artists of our time. It is a path-breaking book that will long remain unsurpassable." -- D.N. Rodowick, William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Visual and Environmental Studies, and Director, Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University

Exhibiting Cinema in Contemporary Art

Steeds vaker kunnen oude Hollywoodfilms, een rustige 16mm film of juist een bombastische multi-screen vertoning in een kunstgalerie of museum bekeken worden. Na jaren een sluimerend bestaan geleid te hebben in de marge van de kunstwereld, waar vroeger alleen ruimte was voor de experimentele of avant-garde film, is filmcultuur de afgelopen 20 jaar geaccepteerd als een volwaardige kunstuiting.

De auteur van deze boeiende studie geeft in deze publicatie een overzicht van de ontstaansgeschiedenis van deze tendens, de bepalende kenmerken, en wat de gevolgen zijn voor zowel de kunst als de bioscoop. Door te kijken naar de hedendaagse kunstgeschiedenis krijgt de lezer inzicht in wat film was en is, en welke betekenis het in de digitale toekomst zal hebben.
