In December 2006, there will be a four day symposium on Expanded Cinema in
Stuttgart, Germany, presented by the same team as the extensive 2004
exhibition in Dortmund.

In addition to the live performances and screenings each evening, the
Stuttgart symposium features lectures, workshops and discussions led by the
artists and guest speakers.

On Friday 8 December, there will be a particular focus on the problems of
documentation and recreation of Expanded Cinema, addressing issues relating
to the conservation, presentation and study of this filmic performance art
for the future. It is our intention to work towards a publication and study
collection devoted to this ephemeral art form. We welcome all questions,
suggestions and contributions related to this subject.

Throughout the symposium, video documentation of previous Expanded Cinema
performances and screenings will be available for viewing in the study area
during gallery opening hours.

Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart presents a four-day symposium of
performances, screenings, workshops and discussions on the theme of EXPANDED
EXPANDED CINEMA is an unfixed mode of film presentation, encompassing
multiple projection, live performances and film environments. In contrast to
installation, each individual projection is a unique and finite durational
experience. Works are structured to incorporate temporal drifts and spatial
variations, and performances often depend on the participation of the

EXPANDED CINEMA deconstructs and subverts the standard conditions of cinema
to break down the relationship between film and viewer, liberating the
mechanics of cinema from the hidden space of the projection booth and
placing them amongst the audience. In resisting documentation and
recreation, EXPANDED CINEMA is a dynamic, live art which can only be
experienced in the here and now.
