For the Record

Screen Spaces is part of For the Record, a live-research and exhibition project on the politics of contemporary video culture, launched by Het Nieuwe Instituut in 2018. For the Record investigates how contemporary video culture operates as a public space for consumerism, activism and emancipation, by exposing existing realities and imagining alternatives. The project seeks to document and reflect upon the technologies, spatial design and forms of representation deployed in video culture and live events, and uses public programs and video production as the main research methodology.

The public program will take the form of live events inside a public recording studio, visualizing the forms of production and postproduction that are deployed in video and that shape our mediated realities. Research questions will be updated and reformulated by the team, the audience and collaborating partners as the project evolves. The project will manifest in an exhibition at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam in 2020.
