Saturday 15 January 5:00 pm
World premiere of three newly commissioned artists’ films inspired by the life and work of boundary-pushing experimental filmmaker Stephen Dwoskin (1939-2012). Rather than films about Dwoskin these new works take creative inspiration from his work and the themes he explored throughout his life of masculinity, sexuality, disability, illness, pain/pleasure, voyeurism, movement and desire.
The films are commissioned by LUX and the University of Reading as part of the Legacies of Stephen Dwoskin, a three year research project supported by the AHRC.
This event also launches DWOSKINO: The Gaze of Stephen Dwoskin, a new book visually documenting the filmmaker’s life and work edited by Rachel Garfield and Henry K Miller.
The Dwoskin Archive is housed at the University of Reading and contains a wealth of material relating to Dwoskin’s life, work and the period he lived in. The Legacies of Stephen Dwoskin is a three year AHRC-research project looking at Dwoskin’s social, political, technological and cultural influences, considering his work in relation to new scholarship in gender, disability studies and phenomenology, and digital forensics and data exploration.
Part of the London Short Film Festival.
