A Talk with Kim Knowles (author Experimental Film and Photochemical Practices)

Labs is the festival's annual showcase of recent analogue works by artist run laboratories from around the world curated by Vassily Bourikas.

Labs Radio Talks is part of the online section of Labs on the Channel. Structured as a series of radio broadcasts and recorded with a small live audience, the Talks focus on aspects of analogue film and the photochemical processes as these are regarded by individual artists, viewers and thinkers from the lab communities and beyond.

In the third and final episode of the Talks Kim Knowles speaks to Vassily Bourikas about her latest book, a work that pays tribute to structures and people preserving the celluloid film practice. Automatically Knowles' book encompasses important aspects of the contemporary artist run film labs and maps major areas and individuals therein. But like the book, our conversation with Kim Knowles goes beyond the labs and considers how these practices interact with exhibition, academia and other social ecosystems and utopias.

Kim Knowles is Senior Lecturer in Alternative and Experimental Film at Aberystwyth University, Wales, and Experimental Film Programmer at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. She is the author of A Cinematic Artist: The Films of Man Ray (2012) and Experimental Film and Photochemical Practices (2020). She has been jury member and guest curator at festivals around the world. She is currently an editor for Millennium Film Journal.
