Jun 08 2019 10:30 - 14:00

Birkbeck Cinema, 43 Gordon Square, WC1H 0PD London

Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival 2019 in partnership with CREAM, University of Westminster hosts a second workshop continuing discussions arising from the first Asia Through the Aperture Workshop held last year. Asia Through the Aperture is an ongoing discussion series exploring contemporary and historical Asian moving image culture and art and reframing discussions around ‘curating Asia’ and moving image practice. This second workshop will address issues around present day artistic approaches to history, and in particular finding radical approaches to presenting history through curatorial practice.

A programme of short films curated by May Adadol Ingawanij and Julian Ross will be presented as part of the workshop.

Presented in partnership with the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM), University of Westminster
