New media, old media
At a historical moment when, thanks to digital formats, languages interact and overlap with each other, the mentorship aims to accompany people who are interested in analyzing the complex interactions between the past and the present. Pre-cinema and post-cinema come together at their extremes. Aimed at artists and researchers who want to use, or get deeper into, art and technology as it relates to the use of new and old media. Aimed at those who wish to produce works in experimental cinema or video, installations, or works that make unconventional use of language. It also aims to enable students to develop academic or independent research related to media archaeology.
