3 DAY FORUM

on Engaging audiences. LOOP Studies.  June 5-7 2014

IN PARALLEL WITH LOOP BARCELONA FAIR AND FESTIVAL

LOOP Panels 2014 Engaging audiences is conceived as a series of discussions, panels and presentations that are meant to open up a space for professional encounters. Its objective is to collectively examine the concerns and challenges in the field of dissemination of artist films and videos.

What is the specific power of moving images towards audiences? How do the different audiences approach and consume these types of artworks? What challenges does a work of this sort face once it has been produced? Is it possible to characterize the publics that consume moving image art in a context of visual literacy? How is the behaviour of audiences affected by the familiarity with moving images in general? How do the various dissemination strategies foster greater appropriation of such products? What evaluation criteria must be defined in order to measure the impact of moving image works on art publics? Do we need to think ahead of screenings and exhibitions or interpret them even in new ways?

Following the interest of consolidating LOOP Barcelona as the international reference platform in the moving image sector, we found the need to discuss the current state of affairs regarding dissemination strategies and how they promote public reception, consumption and appropriation. Hence, LOOP Festival and LOOP Panels will tackle these issues both from the artistic practices and the generation of discourses. The ultimate goal is to strengthen a community of international agents involved with the production and dissemination of moving image based art practices through the exchange of knowledge.
