The proliferation of video installations, computer games, and mind game films in contemporary media cultures has thrown the question of perspective in the moving image into stark relief. These post-cinematic media rearticulate a deconstruction of perspective instigated by earlier experiments experiments in early cinema, the 1920s avant-garde, and the expanded cinema of the 1970s. The international and transdiciplinary conference “Post-Cinematic Perspectives” aims at discussing these changes of optical and narrative perspective in post-cinematic media and apparatuses. The conference will present art historical, philosophical, film and media theoretical reflections on perspective in post-cinema as well as the changed status of the spectator-observer.
