Becoming Again

Ullens Center For Contemporary Art, Beijing, China

No matter what has been said, the present moment is not the time of analog film’s death but a time of transformation. It has not died. It is again becoming. It is being reborn. Free from the demands and conditions of the film industry, analog film has begun a new life as a truly independent medium to be openly shared and collectively developed.
With this workshop we wanted to give an introduction to one of the easiest and cheapest ways of working with film. Participants learned to shoot, develop and project Super8mm film. They learned the rules of working with film and how to break them.
This workshop was made possible with the generous support of the Goethe Institute Beijing.
