Collective endeavours in celluloid


This section, dedicated to the international community of artist-run labs, began last year and will continue with a strong focus on the interaction between the celluloid, photochemical procedures and collective, independent forms of production and distribution. While the commercial utilization of analogue film reaches an end the practice of such groups, scattered around the world, becomes more relevant than ever. What perspectives of artistic work on celluloid and what collective ways of working can be found in this post-cinematic reality?
