Wherever we go, we are surrounded by moving images. In art as in daily life, they have long since developed a life "beyond the cinema," scuttling the conventions of dark auditoriums for images projected onto walls, staged in specially-designed environments, and aggregated in multiples. Beyond Cinema centers around approximately 25 important film and video works, primarily the major installations of the 1990s, including the ravishing projections of Pipilotti Rist, the existentialist image of the body put forward by Bruce Nauman, the psychologically charged filmic spaces of Eija-Liisa Ahtila and the highly conceptual installations of Rodney Graham. Each elaborates on notions of the projected image that were developed in the 1960s, and groundbreaking works from Marcel Broodthaers, Dan Graham and Valie Export are presented to contextualize investigations of identity and body image, film cooperatives, representations of time and other topics.
