Steve Dwoskin has created a body of work that uses the intrinsic discomfort of the extended gaze - the oppressiveness of "being looked at" that comes with the conscious regard of the other.
Participants on this practical workshop will [in session one] be introduced to the 16mm bolex camera by filming in the afternoon. In session two tutors will screen and discuss the material generated from the previous day alongside films by Dwoskin and Warhol as well as other artists that also playfully question whether the camera or its subject matter is acting as the agent, mediator or the performer. Participants will then film with cameras for a second time.
These films will be developed in time for participants to project the results on the glass windows next to the BFI bar in a multi-projection performance conducted in the spirit of Warholıs Exploding Plastic Inevitable.
No prior knowledge of film-making required. Price includes entry to Dwoskin in Conversation.
