Action Files. Collective self-production of Cinema to come

“The first thing to note here is that insofar as the identity of a postconceptual work is not tied to any particular materialization, but rather to the temporally open totality of its materializations, in reflective relation to its idea, it has an immanently constructive and procesual carácter. Each materialization ―and the boundaries of what is included in the work are porous― becomes at once a documentation of the work and a set of materials for a subsequent presentation of the work. In this respect, the work includes its own documentation and, to the extent that it proliferates and its materializations are collected, its own archive as well”.

Peter Osborne, “Archive as Afterlife and Life of Art”

Last December 22, the documentation of the Cinema to come workshops of 2018 was presented in La Posta, with the title “Exhibition documentation of the Cinema to come workshops”. With this event, a process of recovery, archiving and exhibition of the collective audiovisual documents that the project has produced since its inception in 2013 began.

The exhibition “Action Files” presents audiovisual materials (auto)produced in workshops and activities developed in the last four editions of the Cinema to come project, from 2015 to 2018. The focus is on audiovisual materials from the “Action” section of Cinema to come, dedicated to workshops and formative activities of creation and reflection.
