DEMOCRASCOPE: OPEN CALL Democrascope is a cine-lab inviting you to help define the current political moment.
We are looking for very short videos (3 minutes or less) on the theme of active democracy in genres ranging from documentary to experimental, narrative, performance-based, sci-fi, etc. The videos will be programmed into Democrascope, an installation drawing connections between the early history of cinema as public spectacle (such as Montreal’s own Ouimetoscope and its invitation to ‘Venez en Foule!’ - Come en masse) and contemporary, crowdsourced media culture. A typical film program at the turn of the 20th century included politics, news items, human interest stories, observations of every day life, of nature, of eccentric events. The films had titles like Trouble in a Basement, John Rockefeller and the Reporter, The Last Collar Button, Niagara Falls in Winter, From Socialism to Nihilism. The exhibition will take place at Joyce Yahouda Gallery Montreal October 11 - November 5, 2012.
