Generation Loss : Traditions in Experimental Cinema

Experimental Cinema, Video, Time-based Media
in cooperation with COLOGNE/OFF 2012 and ARTVIDEO KOELN
March 14-28, 2012

Generation Loss explores the development of experimental film and video, as well as their contributions to the current and new genres in art making particularly in the Southeast Asian region. Generation loss is a technical term referring to the loss of quality between subsequent copies of data. The project attempts to address issues of archiving and archive-usage, production, distribution, technology, education, piracy and intellectual copyright, among the various creative moving image practices employed in the region today.

Thai experimental films and videos curated by Mary Pasanga

Generation Loss is an ongoing series of dialogues, screenings and exhibitions that seek to posit parallel traditions and tendencies of experimental cinema, extended cinema, live cinema, video art and other creative practice spun from screen- and time-based media to coax/suggest a need to renegotiate imposed Western definitions of art based o
n format and schools of thought, versus the organic and culturally-directed development of these art forms elsewhere, and particularly in the context of the Philippines.
