Cinema and Video

The audiovisual programs are intended to counteract the predominant model of the black cube, even at a time in which both film and video have become fully integrated and dissolved into contemporary art museums. Their aim is to explore the projected image using different formats and discourses: historical series that broaden – and question – the narrations told by the Collection, retrospectives that draw attention to other stories in the audiovisual history and programs that examine the close links that film and video have with contemporary artistic practices. At the same time, this programming seeks to define a space for film and video outside of the usual circuits, describing itineraries distinct from the spectacle and its derivatives.

  • Coproducciones del Centro Internacional de Creación de Vídeo, CIVC
    11 february, 1993 - 27 february, 1993
    Cinema and video Film series

    In just two years of existence, the Centre International de Création Vidéo Montbéliard-Belfort (CICV) has become a model for audiovisual creation and teaching. Now, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía is presenting a small sample of its co-productions from the selection made by Pierre Bongiovanni, the centre’s director. Since the first Manifestation Internationale de Video et Television Montbéliard held in 1982, this biannual festival has gone from strength to strength to become one of the oldest international festivals around. As a result of the success and integrity of the event in 1991, the CICV, a unique institution in its genre, opened its doors. The CICV promotes work and research visits for video artists, producers, teachers, researchers and creators, who live together for the time they need to get their projects done. The initial goal of this centre was to create laboratories that are “decentralised, autonomous, organised into networks, traversed by creative flashes of resistance, lethargy and investigation”, to support the production of independent videos and educational and cultural television programmes.

  • Val del Omar. Fuego en Castilla, 1958-1960
    1 december, 1992 - 18 december, 1992
    Cinema and video Film series

    In February 1992, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía’s Department of Audiovisual Works began organising the Moving Image Biennial ’92: Spanish Visionaries, dedicated solely to the work of Spanish audiovisual artists. The goal of the exhibition is to settle a debt with the artists who have used film, television, video and synthetic images and who have investigated and worked with these languages in Spain, taking a visionary and often daring approach. The intention of the exhibition is to both recover and revitalise video production in the country.
