Lost Frames on Di/Visible Re/Public

Hear from more than twelve artists on publicness, collectivity, and the visibility of minority communities in Filipino moving image. This two-hour discussion complements M+’s guest programme Di/Visible Re/Public, curated by Manila-based collective Lost Frames, on view in the Mediatheque and on Eventive.

How does the use of archival footage in documentaries and video conferencing platforms contribute to notions of a community? In the first hour, artists and collectives will discuss their ideas of collaboration, where the self either completely dissolves or is strengthened through creative acts of political mobilisation. They will address the shared and distinctive characteristics of grassroots, minority communities across the Philippines.

The second hour explores the relationships between artists and the public. What is the ‘public’ and how has its definition changed in our age of digital deluge, where information can be easily accessed, but also submerged online? How do artists share their works, and how do personal and subjective works find value in manifesting private imaginations and experiences? Are there limits to how moving image can be distributed? How do older formats fare?

This event, held in English, will be moderated by M+ Curator of Moving Image Ulanda Blair and Lost Frames’s artist representative Cocoy Lumbao. Simultaneous interpretation in Cantonese will be available.

About Lost Frames

Lost Frames is a non-profit, community-based initiative for showcasing artists’ moving images in the Philippines. It started with a small group of artists in Manila who organised evening events that included presentations of work and discussion alongside a video projector. Since then, Lost Frames has become a platform for artists to share their work and ideas, extending beyond video into the general conditions of art and image-making. Lost Frames has staged regular screenings and talks, and the group has hosted programmes across institutions in the Philippines and abroad.
