Editing Arts - Montage en Mouvement

As a follow-up to the publication of the book Montage. Une anthologie (1913-2018) co-edited by HEAD - Geneva and MAMCO in 2018 (currently being republished), the Cinema Department is organizing an international online colloquium around montage in cinema and contemporary arts on March 18 and 19, 2021.

Starting with the major figures of cinematographic montage (alternate montage, parallel montage, oppositional montage), speakers from different fields of contemporary culture are invited to discuss the mutations and evolutions that the practice of montage encounters in art and design (scenic arts, visual arts, architecture, music, literature, comics, video games, etc.) and to observe the way in which these changes can influence the forms of cinema in return.

This colloque is in line with the Start Making Sense! Cinema and Contemporary Arts Transforming the Essay organized in 2013 and Montage. An Anthology (1913-1918), a book co-published with the MAMCO in 2018. It proposes to alternate fundamental lectures on montage, dialogues between theorists, critics and artists, as well as performances and film screenings.

Editing Arts will alternate fundamental lectures on montage in cinema and contemporary art, dialogues between theorists, critics and artists, as well as performances.
