Moving Stills – Affective Archives
Curated by Marietta Kesting

Location: mumok Kino

In addition to Chris Marker’s well-known and much-loved photo-film La Jetée (1962) there are many filmmakers and artists who have experimented with the format of making films out of still images. Analog photography—or, derived from it, drawing—serves as the basis of these films, in which the materiality of the individual images is stressed. Due to their ambivalence regarding the production of and also the interruption of the filmic illusion of movement, these films can often be very affective and striking. They create imaginary archives, write intimate stories, and set off processes of reflection on the medium and the making of images. Formally and thematically, these works are close to the format of the (family) photo album, a privileged and emotionally charged object of memory that co-constructs its own origins.
