Seven interviews address the question as to what constitutes and characterizes each respective style of curatorial work with the moving picture. How can the specific spatial situation in the cinema be conceived as a space which evokes meaning in a special way, and what is the nature of the narrative break brought about by showing films in exhibition galleries? What are the specific ideological structures which distinguish these spaces?
"Curating Film" presents seven interviews with curators who work primarily with the format of film and/or video. These interviews were all conducted in May 2009 during the Oberhausen International Short Film Festival.
