Parallel to the exhibition “SUPERTEMPORAL. International Videoart Today” at Kulturhuset Stockholm, this round-table aims to discuss and expand the notion, nature and role of moving image today. From the re-appropriation of TV today, the ghosts of images to new articulations of film and video production and distribution and the exhibition space, the aim is to explore moving image’s (non)boundaries, constant contamination and ubiquity in our contemporaneity, our imaginaries and even our subjectivities. By inviting different professionals working with the medium from Barcelona and Stockholm, the symposium will allow the entrance to the subject from different and multiple entry points, through a series of short presentations and a meeting point for debate.
