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.
Het Nieuwe Instituut launches the exhibition and lecture series Screen Spaces, a geography of moving image 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.
Exhibition opening schedule
Responding to the relationship between video and the construction of the public sphere, Screen Spaces presents ten site-specific installations in Lower Manhattan. Free and open to the public, the program transforms its sites into temporal, urban viewing, recording and broadcasting stations, and nodes in a scrolling geography across the city.

Public Program 1 December
To celebrate the opening of Screen Spaces, a public program at Anthology Film Archives on 1 December will convene a group of cultural visionaries in the field of media, technology, design and video. Speakers will discuss the ways in which the production of reality is mediated by the architecture of the screen. The conversation will be documented and broadcasted by research and technology partner Are.na.
