'Practices of Projection: Histories and Technologies' addresses the cultural and technological significance of projection. Every chapter invites the reader to explore a particular aspect of the performative character of the moving image and the labor it involves, covering various eras, places and use cases.
'Practices of Projection' is the fourth book organized by Besides the Screen, an interdisciplinary research and practice network about experimental audiovisual media. Besides the Screen seeks to reconfigure the field of screen studies by refocusing it on the seemingly secondary objects, processes and places that exist ‘besides’ cinema. Over the last ten years, it has put together multiple events in Brazil, Mexico, the UK, Portugal and China. The book launch will feature a presentation by some of the authors, along with an outdoor screening of experimental short films that includes Rocha Matriz (Cristal Líquido, 2020) and Lost Continent (Marina Camargo, 2021), among others.
The event is supported by fluctuating images.
