It has to happen, a serious engagement of the intersection between performance and film, one that is not restricted to "expanded cinema" or the combined uses of live art and projected media. It has to happen, an extension of the discussion surrounding Abramovic (see recent articles and interviews in Afterimage and Artforum), an engagement by film artists with controversies addressing the documentation, meaning, and restaging of performance art, the uses of film by artists engaging in live events, not just in the West, but in the East Block and elsewhere (see the book Body and the East, which lists films by artists producing live events), a conversation about film and video as media in the service of performance within a history of performance art, an art that has always had documentation at its disposal.

We are looking for film works which incorporate live additional elements, deadline is November 5th 2010. No entry fee. Information on how to enter your work can be found here along with images from last years event. Brief description below. Feel free to forward this message onto those you know who might have interest in cinema/performance. MONO NO AWARE IS AN INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF EXPANDED CINEMA PERFORMANCES. TAKING IT'S NAME FROM MOTOORI NORINAGA’S EXPRESSION MEANING "THE PATHOS OF THINGS". THE CONCEPT IS TO PRESENT WORK WHICH IS EPHEMERAL IN NATURE WITH AN EMPHASIS ON THE CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE. ALL OF PRESENTED WORK CONSISTS OF ONE PART FILM PROJECTION AND ONE PART LIVE PERFORMANCE ELEMENT. MONO NO AWARE IS OPEN TO ANY PERSON OR GROUP OF ARTISTS / MUSICIANS / PERSONS MAKING WORK ON 16MM OR SUPER 8MM FILM WHICH INCORPORATES LIVE PERFORMANCE OR VICE VERSA. NO DIGITAL VIDEO. ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY HAVE ALTERED THE AUDIENCE EXPERIENCE AND CONNECTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE CINEMA. WEBSITES, TELEVISION, AND EVEN CELL PHONES HAVE BECOME AN EVERYDAY VEHICLE FOR FILM AND VIDEO. WE BELIEVE THERE IS A MAGIC IN SEEING THE FILM PRINT. THERE IS A PRESENCE A POET HAS READING HIS/HER OWN WRITING. THERE IS A FEELING THAT RESONATES IN YOUR CHEST WHEN YOU SEE A MUSICIAN PERFORM LIVE. IN THE SPIRIT OF THE FESTIVAL WE ASK THAT THE ARTISTS NOT MAKE VIDEO COPIES OF THE PERFORMANCE. EACH MONO NO AWARE PERFORMANCE IS ONE OF A KIND, SOME PARTICIPANTS HAVE GONE SO FAR AS TO DESTROY THE FILM WORK AFTER ITS FIRST RUN AT THE EVENT. The event will take place on Sunday November 28th 2010, 5PM @ Lumenhouse in Brooklyn, NY. There is no cover charge. This year we will be offering workshops in film-making starting in August. Images from previous years, past programs, participants, & more information can be found at our website: WWW.MONONOAWAREFILM.COM Thank you for your time, we hope to see you in November.
