Wendelien van Oldenborgh | Lecture/Audience/Camera

Viewed: 0 time

TrAIN Open’s Autumn programme begins with the first UK screening of Wendelein Van Oldenborgh’s Lecture/Audience/Camera, a 30-minute film produced – in a public process – via a series of three lectures.

It proposes the museum as a location, the lecturers as protagonists and the audience as part of the cast, and the lectures and surrounding dialogues form the basis for the script. Relations – between speaker and audience, audience and camera, camera and speaker, film and viewer – are addressed by both the lectures and the film itself.

With its title openly referring to Dan Graham’s Performer/Audience/Mirror, Van Oldenborgh’s film pays homage to this well-known inquiry into the cross relationships that exist in the production of knowledge and meaning in public situations, such as that of a performance or a lecture.

Followed by discussion between Wendelien van Oldenborgh and David Dibosa, (Wimbledon School of Art/Tate Encounters and a member of the film’s cast), chaired by Deborah Cherry, Associate Director, TrAIN.
