Experimental film is one of the most exciting forms of cinematic expression and, paradoxically, also one of the most ignored by the various (historical, theoretical, critical, economic, educational, etc.) discourses on the cinema. It has long been predominantly the domain of rather marginalized theory and practice, separated from the mainstream.
The exhibition at the Moderna galerija is the first comprehensive presentation of the phenomenon of experimental film in former Yugoslavia in a museum setting, linking it also with other art forms. The focus is on the most prominent experimental filmmakers, developments and trends, festivals (GEFF, the Mala Pula, Belgrade Alternatives, Marčevska osmica in Novi Sad, Amateur Film Festival of Slovenia etc.), production associations (cinema clubs etc.), formal and informal networks, and on films "made with other means".
