Published as part of a research project conducted by ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne, directed by François Bovier & Adeena Mey, and funded by HES-SO/University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland. 

This volume offers case studies of “exhibitions,” understood as events whose singularities emerge through the problematic they raise, articulated to the formation and redefinition of larger “exhibitionary complexes”: the intention is to sketch alternative archaeologies of film exhibitions and complicate their histories as indexed either to the black box or to the white cube. Instead, we aim to map situations of cross-pollinations and hybridization, as well as exclusions, between these devices, yet accounting for the singularity—resulting from the relationship between the aesthetic domain, technical apparatuses, discourses and audiences in their spatial settings—of each of the events studied.
