Bodies Assembling

Auto Italia in collaboration with Cinenova present Bodies Assembling, a series of screenings and workshops featuring moving image work selected by invited artists and activists.

Bodies Assembling strives to facilitate multiple readings or viewings of historical works from a current perspective, screening older film and video works from Cinenova’s collection alongside recent artistic and filmmaking practices. The construction of a temporary cinematic site at Auto Italia’s space will allow a discourse to develop that builds new relationships and knowledge.

Engaging with Auto Italia and Cinenova both as organisations but also as active communities of artists, the programme will express a range of diverse viewpoints on the struggles and feminisms present in the material distributed by Cinenova. Bodies Assembling will encourage discussion, collaborative practice and alternative approaches to the production and distribution of culture through film and video work.

Cinenova is the only women’s film distributor in Europe tracing a feminist film history from the early 20th Century. It is a charitable organisation currently run voluntarily by the Cinenova Working Group.

Bodies Assembling will act as a forum to consider the contemporary legacy of the film and video work distributed by Cinenova reflecting on the similarities and differences of filmmaking and its various economic and political contexts.

A full timetable will be released in the next few weeks with a list of participants. Please check the Auto Italia website for updates.
