This course explores articulations of “cinema” in materials other than those typically associated with the film medium. Recasting the medium as a practice, an idea, and a cultural episteme, we’ll try to think beyond received wisdom about what the “cinema” is. We’ll investigate a broad range of unconventional works: from science fiction to the proto-filmic projections of the historical avant-garde; musique concrète; and the radical exhibition and film-performance practices of the postwar period, including militant film practice in the so-called Third World. We will also devote a week to discussing works on view in the Smith College Museum of Art.
