9789089642127: Between Stillness and Motion: Film, Photography, Algorithms (Film Culture in Transition)

New technological media such as film, photography and computers have altered the way we perceive possible relations between stillness and motion in the visual arts. Traditionally, cinema theory saw cinema and especially the 'illusion of motion' as part of the ideological swindle of the basic cinematic apparatus. This collection of essays by acclaimed international scholars including Tom Gunning, Thomas Elsaesser, Mark B.N. Hansen, George Baker, Ina Blom and Christa Blümlinger, starts out from a different premise to analyse stillness and motion as part of a larger ecology of images and media. They argue that the strategic uses of stillness and motion in art and entertainment since the 1850s illuminate and renegotiate urgent issues within both aesthetics, film, art and media history on the one hand, and, on the other, new perspectives on affects, memories and the contemporary patterns of communication and image circulation.

From the Inside Flap:

Het jaren zeventig debat over stilstaand ('still') tegenover bewegend beeld ('moving')

Paperback versie, hardback verkrijgbaar onder het ISBN 9789089642134

Het in de jaren zeventig opkomende debat binnen de filmwetenschappen over stilstaand ('still') tegenover bewegend beeld ('moving') werd gevoed door de 'apparatus theory' en het idee van verstilde beweging door belichting. Filmische beweging was een illusie, luidde het axioma; beweging een 'ideologische invloed van het filmische apparaat'. Stilstaand beeld gold als de verborgen, zelfs verdrongen, basis voor de industriële illusie van filmische beweging.

De auteur stelt voor om af te stappen van dit verstokte 'still/moving'-debat binnen de filmstudies en zich te richten op een positievere kritiek en een meer affectieve vorm van mediaarcheologie.

- Eivind Røssaak is universitair hoofddocent Film en Media Studies, Department of Scholarship and Collections, bij de Nationale Bibliotheek van Noorwegen (Oslo).
