Workshop No. 4

Video Essay
23. 6. - 8. 7. 2008

Tutors: Zemira Alajbegović Pečovnik and Neven Korda
SCCA Project room, Metelkova 6, Ljubljana and selected locations

ATTENTION: Application deadline is extended till Thursday, June 19th!
Please see changes of the workshop dates as well!

The workshop's objective is to introduce workshop participants with theory and practice of video essay in the field of culture and art.

Within the frame of the workshop, the participants will work on all the phases of the making of video essay. We will shoot selected event in collaboration with the camera person, then write a script, choose the interlocutors and finally edit the essay, either alone or in collaboration with an editor, and put music and titles on it.

Compared to other media, the advantage of a video essay on a certain visual arts event (exhibition, installation etc.) lies in that it possesses the capability to present the event to spectators either in part or in its entirety, with the possibility to present at once the authors, curators and others involved. The textual part is therefore usually brief: the information, opinion, or comment should be neither extensive nor verbally saturated. The way the event is shot is however important, as well as how we choose the images out of the recorded material; how we combine them with statements and off-texts; in other words, what is the relation between the picture and the script in shaping up the essay.

Subject of the video essay will be Visiting Artist, final project of WoA Laboratorium of Curatorial Practices, within which this year's participants host Romanian artist Mircea Nicolae at Metelkova mesto between May 27th - June 27th. The opening of the final exhibition will take place in Alkatraz Gallery on Friday, June 27th, 2008.
