Ex-Cinema : From a Theory of Experimental Film and Video, Hardback Book

Ex-Cinema : From a Theory of Experimental Film and Video Hardback


What does it mean for film and video to be experimental?

In this collection of essays framed by the concept "ex-" - meaning from, outside, and no longer - Akira Mizuta Lippit explores the aesthetic, technical, and theoretical reverberations of avant-garde film and video. "Ex-Cinema" is a sustained reflection on the ways in which experimental media artists move outside the conventions of mainstream cinema and initiate a dialogue on the meaning of cinema itself.
