Rear Windows

Rear Windows explores the relationship between theatre, liveness, and cinema. It is an experiment in radical cinema that renegotiates the possibilities of interacting with the cinema screen. In the spirit of artist, curator, and writer Ian White (1971–2013) as well as Siegfried Kracauer's partly ethnographic method of critique, which he elaborated in particular in The Salaried Masses (1930), Rear Windows poses the question, how what we see is shaped by what we see it with. What follows is an essayistic reflection on cinema and performance, both as physical environments as well as art forms.
