Today’s episode features the fourth of five conversations between Chloé Galibert-Laîné, Kevin B. Lee and Johannes Binotto, recorded as part of the fourth exhibition of Filmexplorer’s Video Essay Gallery, “Technopresence.” Filmexplorer, a publication based in Switzerland, invited Chloé, Kevin, and Johannes to each curate video essays centered on various themes. Exhibition four will be available to watch on the Filmexplorer website until October 30, 2022.
Episode topics include: “Is the body ghostly present in the technological use and representation? How can we embody the technology of video essays? How much technology guides the subject’s choices, and so displace our focus from the subject to society and its dynamics? But also: how much do the technological choices of the video essayist reveal her/his authorship? Is a technological tool intrinsically open to unexpected uses? How important and destabilising is it to show the archaeology of media in video essays? Can videography as such be seen as a technology?”
A special thanks to the Filmexplorer team, Giuseppe Di Salvatore and Ruth Baettig, for this collaboration.
