EMAF Talks: The trans*reformulation of language in experimental political videos

Posted · Add Comment

Conference by Marina Gržinić & Tjaša Kancler

Moderated by: Alfred Rotert

In this lecture Gržinić and Kancler reflect how a selected number of video works through trans* discursivity reformulate the film language of short and experimental video films in order to open a new politics in the field. Our analysis draws on trans*body, trash imagery, the relation of language and law, marginalizing social structures, and rebel unruly positions that through performative declarations of language and structure of their videos repoliticize the experimental video practice of the 21st century. By embracing trans* discourses, histories of subversive films from the South and former Eastern Europe, the lecture explores modes to create wild meanings.
