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.

Pad.ma invites you to
Rivers without Banks
at CAMP

27th December, 2013 through 27th January, 2014


Before the start of a new year; and among big and small resolutions for the future we chose to ask ourselves what is free cinema today, what is its political and perceptual economy, and what could we summon of its powers, before embarking on new journeys of making and thinking.

Rivers without Banks is a screening program of films whose durations extend beyond conventional length. But importantly, this is not a collection put together quantitatively, even as we may argue that the epic scales present in the chosen films carry the weight of histories, and put together chronologically show us a century where individual everyday lives face the annals of terrible power; where the human condition battles with nature and technology, with love and loss, with good and evil.

Mother Truth and her Unruly, Loving Children

SUSPENDED :( Hope to be back in the near future
This season of projections at CAMP begins on weekend evenings starting Saturday, February 29, or leap year day.

At the 18th MAMI Film Festival
20th October to 27th October 2016
Mumbai

When the moving image came into being it was seen as the seventh art, an alchemical medium with the potential to transform the spatial arts: architecture, sculpture and painting, and the temporal arts: music, poetry and dance.

THE NEW MEDIUM II - FOOTAGE FILMS

14 films and three live events that explode the relationship between Footage and Films into a galaxy of possibilities.
Curated by Shaina Anand
at MAMI
October 12 to October 18, 2017

Many Months in Mirya

The film evokes the practice of the diary film, at once observational and reflexive, and draws power from its twin strategies of frugal economy and long duration. Screening & discussion with Renu.



Evenings at CAMP Rooftop

Past Present Future

A never-ending project housed at CAMP around peoples histories of Bombay-Mumbai.

The New Medium

The New Medium ​was a curated programme for the Mumbai International Film Festival for three consecutive years (2016-2018). The inaugural program - in a twisted art-historical mode - framed cinema as a new medium (125 years old, when compared to the other arts), and scoured the century of cinema chronologically...

Electronic Ear Cleaning

A project of listening, including with our ears, to some materials that seem to not touch us directly, but make up our "environment".

The Edgware Road Project


CAMP is involved in a 2-year "print-from-web" project, linked to its own investigations of the infrastructures of commerce and pleasure in this part of London. As part of the first "block study", we looked at several buildings and their ownership and use histories, and produced a series of tablemats.

The web-based part of the project resides at http://edgwareroad.org. ( now at Print.with.camp ) This website collects materials from various such "studies", conducted by us and others, which then are collaboratively edited and published in a number of physical forms: volumes, pamphlets and placemats. This is an ongoing project, as part of the Serpentine Gallery's Public Program.

CAMP roof

Ashok and Azeer spent some time thinking about and building the CAMP terrace roof structure, built in late 2009. Some of the designs that were sketched out are further below: a big requirement was some retractability, i.e. the ability to have a shading roof in the day but to have it open/ partially open at night, for things like screenings under the stars.

Wharfage

At first, a project on the creek in Sharjah, from where a large number of ships leave for Somali ports.
