MFJ 59 “Since ’78 and Beyond” – 35th Anniversary, Vol.2

Spring 2014


One aspect of the Millennium Film Journal project is documentation of the changing territory of artists’ cinema, which sometimes highlights seismic redefinitions of underlying aesthetic and social ideologies. Pinning down trends and tendencies is a hypothetical exercise, fraught, always open to dispute, and no time period in avant-garde cinema has been more explosive, variable, and variously described than the three and a half decades of the MFJ’s existence.

This issue, the 35th anniversary edition Volume 2, maps out a few aspects of this mercurial landscape, from the late 1970s’ re-emergent interest in narrative and political ideologies, through the mid-1990s eruption of gallery and museum installations, to recent developments in exhibition policies and politics, with the fluctuating cinephilia of moving image artists of the last 35 years a theme that appears with varying intensity throughout the period.
