Extra Work: Taking the Figure of the Extra in Cinema as a Metaphor
|Publisher:||merz&solitude, Reihe Projektiv|
|Format:||paperback, 21 x 23,5 cm, 86 pages, English/Bulgarian|
Edited by Jean-Baptiste Joly. Authors: Iara Boubnova, Ivaylo Ditchev, Jean-Baptiste Joly, Alexander Kiossev, Hedwig Saxenburger.
EXTRA WORK is an invitation to a journey into the hyper-real world of moving images where no familiar thing should be taken for granted. It can be seen as a meditation and critical analysis on the language of cinema and its influences on contemporary culture. The publication gathers four art projects (photographs, video, film and installation) by Krassimir Terziev that elaborate on specific procedures of film production. Essays by experts in art history, philosophy, anthropology and literary studies show an interdisciplinary perspective towards the cinematic image beyond the polished surface of the film industry.
