SCF partners with Alchemy Film & Arts to host A=A

Stuart Croft Foundation, in partnership with Alchemy Film & Arts, presents:


ONLINE, Thursday 29th April, 13:00 – 16:15 BST
Free, registration required

We are partnering with Alchemy Film & Arts to host A = A, a discussion event examining questions of repetition, duration and the loop in artists’ moving image.

Inspired by the late Stuart Croft’s concept of circular storytelling, the event will work through questions and provocations relating to the ways in which ideas of repetition, duration and cyclicality inform assumptions integral to the structural organisation of life under capitalism – and, in the context of the current moment’s multiple crises, to the reproduction of capitalism itself.

Featuring talks by four artists – Panteha Abareshi, Rebecca Jane ArthurJennifer Martin (recipient of the 2018 SCF Education Award) and Hogan Seidel – the event marks a year since the first, and what was wrongly assumed to be the only, online edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival.

A = A will launch the eleventh edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival (29 April – 3 May 2021) which presents 171 works of experimental film, artists’ moving image and animation across live screenings and on-demand programmes. The event is also a special iteration of Questions, an online season of events delivered by Stuart Croft Foundation inviting artists, curators, researchers and writers working with artists’ moving image to discuss the process of thinking and making behind their projects.

More information about A=A, including speakers, structure and how to register, is on the Alchemy website.
