We offer guided visits free of charge that work as an introduction to experimental cinema as well as a way to discover the Archive's content. 

On Experimental Cinema 
An introductory approach to the history of experimental cinema through which to discover the main milestones, the most influential currents and some of the most radically free filmmakers of this anti-industrial, imperfect, imaginative, sensory and playful cinema.

Dates: February 27, March 10, April 14

Cinema Without a Camera
There is no need for a camera to make a film. The works of Man Ray, Len Lye or Stan Brakhage prove that the artistic exploration of the possibilities of the cinematographic medium exceed the act of filming. Either through direct animation, in the case of Norman McLaren, or by darkroom work and manual contact printing, like Peter Tscherkassky, this group of films bring both technical and expressive innovations.

We're here, we're queer

Such a free and radical cinema has historically been the perfect medium for dissenting discourses and sensibilities. A personal, amateur, anti-industrial cinema, connected to experience and intimacy, through which “deviant” perspectives around gender and sexuality are expressed.
