Distribution as Production
Examine distribution strategies and how they influence the production process of artists’ moving image works.
By considering three case studies, the Experimenta Workshop examines distribution strategies and how they influence the production process of artists’ moving image works. Marie Logie and Anouk De Clercq will introduce Auguste Orts, a Brussels-based artists-run production and distribution platform founded by four Belgian artists (including De Clercq) in 2006. Adam Pugh will present his work as the Artists’ Moving Image Project Manager for the Independent Cinema Office, where he runs an initiative to develop exhibition and distribution capacity in the UK cinema network. Olivier Marboeuf, founder and curator of the Khiasma arts centre in Les Lilas, near Paris, will discuss the various distribution tools and strategies that Khiasma puts at the service of the artists they commission, including those of the film production company Spectre and the recently established curatorial platform Phantom. Chaired by Maria Palacios Cruz (Deputy Director, LUX). The Experimenta Workshop is an initiative of On and For Production, a Europe-wide project that supports and facilitates the production of artists’ moving image work. Presented with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
