Since the 1990s, a "cinematographic turn" has supposedly taken place in contemporary art paralleled by the emergence of a "cinema of exhibition" during the same period. This collection of new essays investigates the relationships between the "white cube" and the "black box," focusing mainly on the 1970s, a decade in which film practices and moving images were integrated into museums and art spaces.

In order to define what constitutes a "film exhibition," the authors in this volume analyze multiple modalities of presenting the moving image through historical case studies: the anatomy of video art, expanded cinema, artists’ films and installations, and the moving image in the public sphere. Going back from the 1930s to the present, these contributions address commercial spectacular or advertising forms of moving images, artists’ performative practices, installations in large museums, exhibitions devoted to projections, festivals of experimental films, and the likes. The challenge of this volume is to articulate historical case studies alongside wider questions that shape contemporary forms of artists’ film and the moving image with their exhibition contexts.

The book is part of the Documents series, co-published with Les presses du réel and dedicated to critical writing. This volume is published with ECAL, University of Art and Design, Lausanne.
