What are the changes in the medium of moving image? Does the evolution of film language change our ability to tell stories? Do we recognize new genres or types of narratives? Philippe-Alain Michaud will try to answer these questions. The aim is also to discover how the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement 2021 (BIM’21) is the instance and articulation of a broader evolution that affects our perception of moving image in the art world, but also in our relationship to media in everyday life.
Philippe-Alain Michaud is curator in charge of the film collection at the Centre Pompidou, and teaches at the Faculty of Art History at the UNIGE. He is the author of Aby Warburg et l’image en mouvement (Macula, 1998), Le peuple des images (Desclée de Brouwer, 2004), and Sur le Film (Macula, 2016) as well as numerous articles. He has curated several exhibitions, including: The Movement of Images (Centre Pompidou, 2006), Electric Nights (Museum of Photography, Moscow and Laboral Gijon) 2007, and Flying Carpet (Villa Medici, Rome and Les Abattoirs, Toulouse) 2010. He is particularly interested in the relationship between film and the visual arts.
