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.
Responding to the relationship between video and the construction of the public sphere, Screen Spaces presented ten site-specific installations in Lower Manhattan, and took place at Anthology Film Archives, Are.na, the Bamboo Garden, Baxter St. at The Camera Club of New York, the Emily Harvey Foundation, MATHEW NYC, Rhizome at ON CANAL, Seward Educational Campus, Spring Mart Bodega, and Whooden Collective. Free and open to the public, Screen Spaces transformed its sites into temporal, urban viewing, recording and broadcasting stations, and nodes in a scrolling geography across the city.
Screen Spaces was documented as a live-archiving channel on Are.na, who developed a digital research, documentation and sharing platform, that resulted in a publication. Are.na is a member-supported platform for connecting ideas and building knowledge globally.
For the Record
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.

Screen Spaces public program
To mark the opening of Screen Spaces, a public program at Anthology Film Archives will assemble a group of artists and cultural practitioners to discuss the ways in which the production of reality is mediated by the architecture of the screen.
