Below are some photos from the Kinetica Book Launch that took place October 6th through 9th 2011 at Gran Lux in St Étienne.
Here is an excerpt from a blog entry by our wondermental friend in Leeds, Cherry Kino, who attended the event:
Kinetica “is about alternative spaces for cinematographic experiments, i.e. spaces used for cinema activity that weren’t originally cinema spaces. The [authors of the book] visited loads of these places around Europe [LaborBerlin included] and compiled their information and photos into a gorgeous book. The launch event had loads of projections, live film performances, and installations, including a sound performance too. There was food too, and we all met lots of different people engaged in similar cinematic activity, with similar aims and desires, it felt like it had a really big impact on everyone there, and it was really enjoyable. I feel wiped out with tiredness (and partying) but absolutely invigorated at the same time, passion rising for cinema cinema cinema!”
