Printed Cinema, 2004-Rosa Barba
The artist explains, “The publication project Printed Cinema continues my audiovisual work as a personal reflection on the essence of the cinematographic: images are merely articulated in the space in between images. Gaps, ellipses, dialectics between images—essentially modernist notions—are essential in that respect. In Printed Cinema, this is expressed in the editing principle, as well as in the oppositions between film and printing, between text and image. The specific distribution method, of course, extends the project into a wide range of cultural and social contexts. In this way, Printed Cinema challenges the outer edges of the artist’s book. Mechanisms proper to the film medium find their translation in a different context.”
This collection published by Dancing Foxes Press, Brooklyn, brings all issues of Printed Cinema together in a handsome archival and expandable case. The purchase of the edition comes with an ongoing subscription to future issues. (The first ten issues were published in 2008 as a box set by the Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König and quickly sold out.)
The publication box comes with a subscription for the future issues of Printed Cinema with no additional costs for the acquiring party. The issues will be sent to the box owners as they are published.
