Field Broadcast / LUX Collection Residency

LUX and Field Broadcast are pleased to announce Stefano Collicelli Cagol as the Field Broadcast / LUX Collection Residency Curator 2014.

During his research residency Stefano Collicelli Cagol will devise an online project combining news broadcasting and contemporary artists' moving image. The curatorial project will explore how news might be delivered through an artistic approach to moving images, rather than using journalistic forms, deploying facts and commentary. At the same time, the project rethinks how this process could activate an archive of art works. By reviving material from the past to face the present, it will be possible to not only re-activate a work of art within a new context (as an alternative to museums or galleries), but also to infuse the present with different temporalities, opening new points for discussion. In reconsidering traditional formats of TV broadcast news through online platforms of information distribution and digital technology, the project will ask: Is it possible to rethink the function of the news and its distribution through the mediation of an artistic perspective? And if this is the case, which kind of impact could this have on the status of the art work per se? Could digital platforms provide a new space different from that of the museum, where an archive and its material are reproduced and revitalised?
