MFJ 76 “Worlds”

Fall 2022

Central to Millennium Film Journal 76 is a collection of texts commissioned by guest editor Barbara London, the founder of the Video-Media Exhibition and Collection Programs of  the New York Museum of Modern Art. Her dossier, “Focal Points”,  provides an impression of political and artistic worlds beyond US- and Eurocentric institutions and movements. Throughout the issue, authors are attentive to the way film and filmmakers engage with Worlds: those of media culture, geo-political hotspots (Hong Kong), and more generally the political-cultural and post-colonial linguistic formations (Singapore) of the various countries and cities in which these artists operate.  

A dozen distinguished media theorists and critics have contributed reviews of exhibitions, new books, films, video works and installations, including the 2022 EMAF and Media City festivals, practitioners Jonas Mekas, Alisi Telengut, Walid Raad, Sarah Bliss, Abraham Ravett, David Claerbout.

The full introduction by Nicky Hamlyn is available here.
