Roundtable discussion concluding the triple residency Imaginary documentary
May 30, 2019 from 5 to 7 p.m.

This residency proposes to explore and experiment with expanded documentary practices based on a durational non-fiction film/video project called Tranzicija [Transition]. This project operates across multiple forms and registers, drawing on a rich archive of material shot over the course of ten years that follows the impacts of the post-socialist political and economic transition in post-Yugoslav Serbia at the level of everyday life. Elements of the project being completed outside of (but in conversation with) the OBORO residency include a feature-length cinematic documentary (in post-production) and a Web-based documentary. This residency proposes to explore installation-based and live multiplatform performance potential of non-fiction cinema in the context of the Tranzicija project. The main objectives of the residency involve working through and experimenting with how to adapt non-fiction material to an exhibition environment and live setting, to explore projection and display options, and to develop the possibilities of more modular and light scale, portable approaches to both installation and live performance.
