Parallels of Sound and Image in Cinema
18/09/2019

As part of V4 ACADEMY program, Dušan Barok - also jury member of BEAST 2019 - will hold two masterclasses focusing on parallel roles of sound and visuals in cinema in music videos and their encounter in wider culture. The first masterclass The Cultures of Moving Image will start with the talk about behind-the-scenes of Monoskop – Platform for Avant-Garde Media Studies. Starting out as an effort to document contemporary media culture of central Europe, over the years it grew into a major resource on the arts and culture. The second part of the masterclass will focus on the role of film and moving image in a range of communities and cultures in the past and present. A broad range of works will be presented and discussed. The second masterclass Music Video from Visual Perspective will focus on music videos and music passages from selected Eastern European films considering their visual – cinematic part. The lecture consists of commented short examples.

Dušan Barok is a researcher, artist and cultural activist. He is founding editor of the arts and humanities wiki Monoskop and works as a research fellow at the Media Studies Department of the University of Amsterdam.
