Curatorial Approaches to Cinema Technology
By Gabriel Menotti


Movie Circuits attempts to grasp media in the making. It delves into the
underbelly of cinema in order to explore how images circulate and apparatus
crystallize across different material formations. The indisciplinary
experience of curators and projectionists provides a means to suspend
traditional film studies and engage with the medium as it happens, as a
continuing, self-differing mess. From contemporary art exhibitions to
pirate screenings, research and practice come together in a vibrant form of
media scholarship, built from the angle of cinema’s functionaries – a call
to reinvent the medium from within.

Gabriel Menotti is a lecturer in Film and Multimedia at UFES (Brazil). He
holds a PhD from Goldsmiths (University of London).
