Writing Through Editing a 5-day thematic seminar, facilitated by Sabine Groenewegen
This thematic will explore editing as a tool for research, exploration, exchange, and writing. Students are invited to respond to archive material through the lens of their own interests and explore their individual research questions. Through hands-on editing experiments we explore thinking-through-making.
The thematic seminar breaks down different approaches to appropriation filmmaking. It offers history and context of found-footage filmmaking by exploring a range of subversive filmmaking practices throughout cinema history which used appropriation to resist and rewrite dominant narratives.
The combination of case-studies and hands-on assignments, sets the context for the sharing assemblages and conversations around work-in-progress to explore the process of re-editing existing material as a way to investigate, play, and discover new paths.
