The Inter-View

UMBC’s Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) presents The Inter-View: Practices for Slow Encounters: A Festival for Camera & Body.

In 2018, artist and archivist Cori Olinghouse and UMBC assistant professor of visual art Jules Rosskam formed a long-term research collaboration, Practices for Slow Encounters. Bringing their respective forms of documentary filmmaking and performance into conversation they ask: “How do we look with the body, not at the body?” Rosskam and Olinghouse will engage the diverse learning community of UMBC in their praxis-based research through a series of public programs including a screening of short film/video works and an experimental lecture. These events follow their workshop Camera-Body, a workshop for cinematic arts and dance makers presented through CIRCA in spring 2020.

The Inter-View is a video presentation of one facet of the research Jules Rosskam and Cori Olinghouse carried out for Practices for Slow Encounters. Over the course of this collaboration, ‘the interview’ surfaced as a character, slipping through multiple sites and manifestations. Moving between witness, listener, antagonist, manipulator, interrogator, oral historian, journalist, therapist, and hypnotist they look closely at a range of interview forms and strategies. Olinghouse and Rosskam explore what might constitute an embodied witnessing, what strategies produce a slow encounter, and how to make present rather than represent. After the event, they will participate in a live Q&A, covering all aspects of the three-part program. We invite anyone who has attended the previous events to join us for this robust conversation.
