From research to writing, through performance and film, this seminar led by BFMAF 2019 Artist in Profile Marwa Arsanios follows the different stages of building a work—from the act of reading and writing to performing a text out loud to an audience and in front of the camera.

Arsanios will open up different aspects of her practice focusing on the textual, articulating the tensions that emerge from processes of reading, writing and performing. She will also talk about the different methodologies she uses for her research and how the filmic apparatus is used as a tool for research. How can casting or montage, for example, be used as a way for doing research? While articulating the apparatus itself, what kind of images are created and what labour is put into their creation?
