Media Archaeology of Films

Seminar
Media Archaeology of Films

Speaker: Ege Berensel

How are the remnants of past media apparatuses and cultures, their products, their forms of production, their moving-images that have remained outside the mainstream and were transformed into waste material, reconstructed in today’s media apparatuses and today’s art, with a multiplex history and temporality? It was stated that media archaeology views “media cultures as sedimented and layered, a fold of time and materiality where the past might be suddenly discovered anew, and the new technologies grow obsolete increasingly fast.” How can an archaeological study be conducted on analogue data and media, such as 8mm, super 8mm, 16mm films? How could these media remains be collected, found, archived and mapped? How could a counter-memory and counter-narrative be generated with them? How could singularities, coincidences, noise and processes be archived? How can a new field of knowledge, a new plane of deliberation be established by mapping and classifying this visual information, and how can a realm of artistic research be constructed by utilising archives of moving-images?

Ege Berensel is a media artist and visual researcher based in Ankara. He studied Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Industrial Design in Middle East Technical University (METU). His three-channel video installation Orasıburası [here(t)here] (2004) was exhibited at the Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, in 2005, and at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona, in 2007. Another three-channel video installation of his, Türkü Söylemeyen Tepe [The Hill Doesn’t Chant Anymore] (2007) was exhibited in the 10th International Istanbul Biennial, and his multi-channel video installation Dinamo Mesken was exhibited at SALT Ulus, in 2015. In 2016, at Goethe-Institut Ankara, two video installations of his, Devlet Dersi [State Lesson] and Militan Sinema [Militant Cinema], were showcased in the exhibition Terk Etmeyeceğiz [We Won’t Leave]. In 2014, with his film 1963, he participated in the exhibition Yazlık: Şehirlinin Kolonisi [Summer Homes: Claiming the Coast] at SALT Beyoğlu, and in 2018 he participated in the exhibition İdealist Mektep, Üretken Atölye [Idealist School, Productive Studio] with a visual research titled İmgeler Okulu [The School of Imagery]. In 2018, he participated in the event Lab of Labs at the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial. He continues working on his “8mm Turkish Family Films Archive”.
