Expanded Cinema: Film as Spectacle, Event and Performance – curated film screenings (10-12; 17-19; 24-26 September 2004) and 4-day symposium staring 10 December 2006 and 1-day event on 27 January 2007.

‘Expanded Cinema’ is an unfixed mode of film presentation, encompassing multiple projection, live performances and film environments. In contrast to installation, each projection is a unique and finite experience and often requires the participation of the artist. This is a dynamic, live art which subverts the standard conditions of cinema and breaks down the conventional relationship between film and viewers.
Expanded Cinema: Film as Spectacle, Event and Performance (Dortmund 2004) was the largest survey of the field to date, featuring 32 artists. These included William Raban (UK), Valie Export (Austria), Tony Conrad (USA) and Wilhelm Hein (Germany).

All works were shown in their original formats and configurations. The entire programme was professionally documented on video and digital photography for future use as a study archive and publication. Webber made all of the selections of the works and organised the presentations and participation by many of the filmmakers.

A symposium Expanded Cinema: Space/Time/Structure was subsequently held in Stuttgart 7 – 10 December 2006, and was followed up by Electric Cinema Redux at Amsterdam’s Venster on 27 January 2007.
Taken together, these three events reveal the importance of expanded cinema through screenings of rarely seen works and opening up a debate about the future of creating a research archive for Expanded Cinema.
The December 2006 event was reviewed by Luke Fowler in Map, issue 9 (2007) and Expanded Cinema material can be viewed on:
