MRES Art: Moving Image 2013-2015
A Unique Masters degree devoted to the study of Artists' Moving Image
Open for applications
Over the past two decades, artists moving image has proved itself a dynamic and thriving area of art practice, to be encountered in the gallery, museum, cinema auditorium, and a host of other unexpected venues. But what about the rich and fascinating histories, theories and aesthetics that have led artists to turn to film and video? And what insights can a study of artists moving image offer us for understanding the diverse practices that now fill art spaces internationally as well as in the UK?
A unique association between LUX and Central St Martins College of Art has created a research led masters degree to address these questions. The course is focused on nurturing a discursive culture around moving image art, and offers a number of unique features for students interested in studying and working in the field of artist's moving image.
As the only course of its kind dedicated solely to the study of artist filmmaking, the pathway offers an in depth insight and understanding into the theories, aesthetics and histories that have contributed to its rich and diverse culture and filmmaking practices. Seminars are led by eminent scholars in the field: including Dr Maeve Connolly, Melissa Gronlund, Dr Rachel Moore, Uriel Orlow, Filipa Ramos and Dr Duncan White. Visiting lecturers include Dr Ros Gray, Jonathan Walley, Federico Windhausen and Dr Maxa Zoller, as well as Benjamin Cook, Mike Sperlinger and Gil Leung from LUX.

The 3rd edition of Sheffield Fringe considers the critical possibilities of film as both documentary and art. This year’s programme traces back through the film co-op movement of the 80s, and earlier experimental film in continuous dialogue with new documentary practices.
Charlotte Ginsborg’s Over the Bones launches Sheffield Fringe 2013, as the opening salvo of a curatorial mix tape that positions artists’ film as musical. The remarkable Sheffield Media Unit archive (1984-89), affirms Sheffield as a centre of both resistance and serious play. In tribute to Michael Grigsby, Living on the Edge (1987) reveals the impact of the Thatcher era on three families, counterbalancing the exuberance Sheffield Media Unit. Urban Observations, guest curated this year by November Paynter, presents videos that work with performance, recital and gathering to share very specific and diverse tales of Istanbul and beyond. Annexinema are showing George Barber ‘s I was once involved in a shit show, Peter Kubelka’s Afrikareise and more + Live A/V performances by Neil Webb, Ron Wright, Rob Barker, Joe Moran & guests.

With Amos Vogel's passing in April 2012, American film culture lost one of its most passionate and influential iconoclasts. Incite #4, "Exhibition Guide," pays tribute to Vogel's legacy, most notably Cinema 16, a precursor to the flourishing microcinema network of the 1990s and a forebear of today's freewheeling cinespaces. In the age of so-called "participatory" media, in which people connect virtually using avatars and aliases to stream data on handheld devices, what binds these social cinematic sites, and makes them flourish?
While vertically mapping microcinemas of past and present, this issue also surveys the breadth of alternative media exhibition practice, from Dziga Vertov's agit-train and Bill Brand's metro Masstransiscope, to artists who use film without projectors and projectors without film. Incite #4 seeks to engage the history of unconventional cinemas by zeroing in on those puzzle pieces that don't quite fit. Lost-and-found in the couch cushions and idiosyncratically dog-eared, these are the components of itinerant and expanded cinema practices that don't take place inside four-walled cinema chambers, on screens, online or, even, in a projector fashion. Hopefully, these aberrations will spur readers to reconsider the whole gambit of moving image exhibition.
