Lecture 01: History of Alternative Cinema and Contemporary Experimental Screen

[Tacita Dean: Film. The Unilever Series, Tate Modern, London]

This introductory lecture provides essential information on how the subject’s aims and learning outcomes are achieved through its lecture series, workshops, and assessment tasks. It provides an overview of experimental practices in screen. Specifically, we ask: what is experimental practice? Why experimental practice? We approach these questions by exploring the role of experimentation in the context of avant-garde cinema and contemporary screen practices, and in particular, we will examine the idea of medium materiality.
