EDITING in TIME and SPACE
Mål og innhald
Film and video has developed as a distinct language throughout the 20th and 21st centuries¿, solidifying into
recognisable genres and narrative structures. Still, since its infancy, the medium has always been experimental and
rule-bending, be it as a blockbuster, propaganda clip or Avant-garde output. As the medium has moved into the age of
digital video, non-linear options, digital effects, sampling, and compositing has greatly advanced our possibilities to cut
and sculpt the moving image in its representation of space and time. Now that we are increasingly immersed in a
media reality, it is interesting to reflect how we can literally cut, paste and combine our own sense of reality.
This workshop will look at how artists and avant-garde filmmakers have been instrumental in this development
throughout, both in productive, innovative ways, and through strategies of resistance to the manipulative and illusory
aspect of the medium. In the more contemporary examples, we will take a closer look at work that function as stylistic
composites; mixing formats, and crossing though genres, exemplified in the works of artists like Jeremy Deller, Cecilia
Bengolea, Hito Steyerl, Elisabeth Price, Loure Prouvost, and more.
Further development in the students individual practise, within the field of moving image and sound.

Undervisningsformer og omfang av organisert undervisning
Throughout this editing workshop, we will take a hands-on approach, and play around with various sources of footage
and editing techniques. The student can approach the workshop as a new start but are also welcome to bring existing
material and ideas, that can be discussed and developed within the framework of the course. (Please note; this
workshop emphasises the editing process ¿ there will be no time for filming. The students will get information nearer
the time, of how to prepare the footage for the workshop)
