Ted Joans in Context: Notes and Thoughts on Filmmaking [EN + FR]

A unique opportunity to engage with rarely shown and recently digitised films featuring Ted Joans. Following her extensive research on Ted Joans, art historian and curator Karima Boudou (1-54 Forum Programme Curator) will introduce several films spanning the decade of the 1990s. What is the role of archives in generating discourse and understanding histories? What can we learn from the process of archiving film and the use of archived documentary films in contemporary cultural projects? In partnership with ESAV, l'École Supérieure des Arts Visuels de Marrakech Please note that this is not a live recording. We want to take this opportunity to recognise and thank Vincent Melilli for his very kind introduction.

Our partnership with ESAV commenced with the inaugural Marrakech edition in 2018.
