Maud Ceuterick will moderate a conversation on the event Latent City – Invisible Fields #2, 29 November at Bergen Kjøtt.
Maud Ceuterick is a research fellow in Digital Culture at the University of Bergen. Her research deals with gender and power relations in everyday spaces, as portrayed on screen. Her postdoctoral project ‘Affirmative Post-Cinema: Narrative and Aesthetic Responses to Gender and Power’, which received EU funding (Horizon 2020), deals with the narrative and aesthetic mechanisms of digital media, immersive technologies in particular. Originally from Belgium, she studied and worked in Spain and Ireland, and completed a PhD in film and media studies in 2016 at the University of Otago (New Zealand), which led to her first book, Affirmative Aesthetics and Wilful Women: Gender, Space and Mobility in Contemporary Cinema (2020). She has also published on the road movie genre, space tourism in science-fiction films, gender and domesticity in transnational cinema, and on the act of walking as activism on screen and across social media.
Latent City presents artistic productions dealing with the city’s hidden stories. Seen through the lens of artistic observation, hidden stories, latent infrastructures and questions of digital presence and of power and democracy in our cities, meet in an exhibition that takes place over three weeks. The Latent City is the city that awaits, the one that is about to unfold, our common future city.
Several of the art projects are financed or commissioned by BEK, while others are existing works presented in new formats. A video program will be on show throughout the project period and there will be an extensive program of talks and performances. Please read more about the project and the programme here.
