|The interaction between cinema, architecture and dispositif opens theoretical and methodological perspectives of which the contributions compiled in this volume are a significant illustration.
Cinema, architecture and urbanism have developed a long and mutual relationship, and research in this field has given rise to a large body of interdisciplinary studies. The contributions in the first section of this volume present a wide array of topics including cinematic works by architects, filmic representations of architectural and urban space, audiovisual practices in urban and architectural contexts, the relationships between filmic and architectural space and recent developments in and understandings of design.
In face of new forms (such as the installation, exhibition, or performance) and technological advances (digital image processing and interactivity, among others), the definition of cinema has expanded. The contributions in the second section discuss the outcomes of this expansion and investigate novel uses of older forms in the work of contemporary artists, performers and filmmakers.
CINEMA, ARCHITECTURE, DISPOSITIF is the first of two selections of contributions to the III Paris Summerschool and the VIII MAGIS – Gorizia International Film Studies Spring School.
