Found Footage: Cinema Exposed

    This spirited work commemorates the opening of the EYE Film Institute in Amsterdam in spring 2012. Found Footage: Cinema Exposed shows how artists and filmmakers use the virtually inexhaustible reservoir of images from film archives, TV, DVD, online and from all sorts of collections. The 'found' material comes from home movies, celebrated Hollywood classics, early silent cinema, TV fragments, anthropological study material, as well as industrial film, documentaries and advertisements. This publication highlights the wealth and variety of the practice of re-using and re-working found material, demonstrating its power to generate different meanings within new artistic strategies. "">Found Footage: CInema Exposed, the first exhibition in the new building, takes as its theme the museum's vast and valuable collection and shows how filmmakers and artists repurpose recent and historical footage to create new works: older narrative structures are unraveled to create new stories, images are recontextualized to produce new meaning, and different edits of the film footage are used to highlight new political or emotional significances. A beautifully illustrated and constructed volume, Found Footage reveals the power of film to be reused and recycled to create endless new pieces of art.
