The talk is open only for the School for Young Artists’ participants
Masha Godovannaya will speak about film, video, and moving images. She will address issues of being involved into production of moving images consciously or unconsciously, the ways the moving images are displayed in different viewing environments (or “cinematic dispositifs" as Raymond Bellour said); re-politicization of editing and the forms of collectivity that cinema offers (friendship, cooperation, intimacy, community); transformations of an artist’s eye into his/her attitude, a body into a camera, and a camera into a pen (or whatever one uses to write).
Masha Godovannaya is a visual artist, experimental filmmaker, and queer-feminist researcher, born in Moscow, Russia. Approaching art production as an artistic research and collective action, Masha’s artistic practice draws on combinations of approaches and spheres such as moving image theory, experimental cinema, and DIY video tradition, social science, queer theory, decolonial methodologies, and contemporary art. Masha’s films and visual works have been shown at many festivals, screenings and art venues (such as Rotterdam Film Festival (the Netherlands), Oberhausen International Film Festival (Germany), London Film Festival (UK), Manifesta-10 (Russia), 7th Liverpool Biennial (UK), Galway Film Festival (Ireland), the Tate Modern (UK), Center Georges Pompidou (France) and many others.
She holds an MFA degree in Film/Video from Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College, New York, and MA in Sociology from European University in St. Petersburg, Russia. Currently, she is a candidate in PhD in Practice at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna, Austria.
