Screening | Projection

Arika have engaged in the presentation of many types of screening works, expanded cinema practices, films and clips. The archive includes discussions surrounding the films we screened and film performances, but not the actual films we screened. Here is a few suggestions of ways into investigating this Screening and Projection theme. The Museum of Non-Participation is a live expanded cinema and spoken word event from Episode 1: A Film is a Statement, Teresa Maria Diaz Nerio's film/lecture performance about Caribbean cinema and Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz's punk, drag, queer film and lecture environment.

The proposed paired theme ‘terms’ are not synonyms nor are they binary oppositions but words that combine to (hopefully) produce un-rational anti-categories. The aim is to allow (encourage) the archive to be read in ways counter to normative or reductive categories. To allow things in the archive to appear in sometimes unlikely groupings and to resist essentialism.
