Screen Spaces, a geography of moving image is an exhibition and lecture program within the For the Record series from 1 to 7 December 2018 in New York. The program explores video and time-based media, including net art, set-design, animation, video, reportage, music videos, television, CCTV and social media channels, as sites of reality production and circulation. By examining the material, spatial and political dimensions of the space of the screen and the territories it mediates, Screen Spaces aims to unveil the identities, ideologies and imaginaries that inform video culture today.
