On March 11th, 2016, the book Exposing the Film Apparatus – The Film Archive as a Research Laboratory will be launched at an international seminar in EYE. The book was compiled by Giovanna Fossati and Annie van den Oever and consists of a collection of essays on historical and contemporary film equipment and media technologies.
The book contains contributions from 32 international authors, including collection specialists, curators, theatre operators and academics from different disciplines. The topics range from Augmented Reality browsers and portable Bolex cameras from the American avant-garde period to greater post-production equipment such as 35mm film printers. The book will appear in the series Framing Film, a collaboration between EYE and Amsterdam University Press.
