Editing Arts - Montage in Motion - International Symposium

To follow on from the book Montage. Une anthologie (1913-2018) published jointly by HEAD – Genève and MAMCO in 2018 (currently being reprinted), the Film Department has organised an international symposium and a series of events, Editing Arts, focusing on editing in film and contemporary arts, on 27 and 28 March 2020 in Geneva.

Editing Arts aims to be both prospective and retrospective. Focusing on the major figures in film editing, speakers are invited to address the mutations, alterations and developments that editing is going through in contemporary arts nowadays (performing and fine arts, architecture, music, literature, design, graphic novels, video games, etc.) and what these art forms might bring to cinema in return.

Editing Arts will alternate between fundamental lectures on editing in film and contemporary arts, discussions between theoreticians, critics and artists, as well as performances. Prior to the symposium, events will be organised in partnership with La Comédie de Genève, Cinema Spoutnik and the Centre d’Art Contemporain de Genève.
