A Season of Footage and Films Part 3. Talking Heads

Talking Heads

Sunday, 26th December, 2010, 
6:30 pm onwards


Commonly seen as the bane of documentary films, the "talking head" is reincarnated as a rare and entertaining set of encounters, in formats such as:

a solo, by a woman in her kitchen, and another in a dance bar,
a couple, in a playful interview by jean-luc godard of woody allen,
a trio, when two european film students drunkenly interview tsai ming liang,
four men on a talk-show set, "the Good, the Bad and the Ugly" and the presenter, on In-Mumbai cable channel in 2001,
"paanch bahuraniyan" (five daughters-in-law) in a feudal house in an urban village in Delhi,
a dozen young people and a dholki (drum) singing an old protest song indoors,
a crowd that takes over a TV studio in Bucharest, in 1989.

Also featuring, not in this order: deleuze, dhasal, haraway, ibrahim, prelinger, navalkar, roy, Talking Heads, zizek and more.

What thread ties them together? Perhaps no one , just as all the objects in one's house are not "related" in a simple way.

A Season of Footage and Films

CAMP presents
Saturday or Sunday evening screenings through winter, exploring footage both within and outside the usual capsule of "the film". An experience that could be similar to watching films, or at other times harder to digest, or slower to release, closer to the moment of shooting, less censorious, and less fearful of finitude. Another life, another world of viewing and listening experiences is always possible.

CAMP: Beginnings

Beginnings is an exhibition tracing some of the conceptual and artistic origins of CAMP. At ARGOS, Brussels as part of new beginnings at ARGOS itself.

A Photogenetic Line: Experimenter 2019

A 100-foot long branching sequence of cutouts drawing from the photo archives of The Hindu, a 140-year old newspaper. Cutouts here are a way of reframing existing photographs as new organisms and to create a new boundary or border for the image.
