JAR26 OF HAUNTED SPACES

JAR26 – THE JOURNAL FOR ARTISTIC RESEARCH

The exposition Of Haunted Spaces-The Artistic Research in Filmmaking is published and online: https://jar-online.net/en

Of Haunted Spaces is an artistic research project conducted into Chinese ghost cities. It interprets the paradoxical urban phenomena where cities are built for millions, but not lived in. The research process is presented through the publication of Ghost Paper, a reference to the traditional Chinese joss paper that is burned as an offering to the dead, which I developed with Ralph K.C.Wu.

The first issue used a newspaper format that can be unfolded into a poster. This online version uses the reference to the traditional papers to connect the online with the offline world, the imaginary and the real world, to reveal the effects of capitalism that are haunting our living conditions.

Artistic Research in Film Conference 2021

Artistic Research in Film Conference 2021

International GEECT Conference// Transversal Entanglement // Artistic Research in Film

3-5 June 2021

The freedom of searching the unsearchable in the process of filmmaking as artistic research allows combining different disciplines, such as philosophy, cultural studies, urban studies and film studies to enhance each other’s range of knowledge production. In her ongoing art-based research project, Ella Raidel investigates China’s urban spaces in and through cinema.

The subject investigated is how global capitalism is affecting and haunting the living conditions of our time. In exploring the line between documentary and fiction, Ella Raidel develops a method of performative documentary to create a discursive space in which facts, analyses, commentaries, and references can be woven into one narrative. This research is not only to scrutinize the social reality and to render the social discourse but also to reflect on the convention of filmmaking and its representations. Her new film A PILE OF GHOSTS on Chinese Ghost cities will be released in 2021 and will be the subject of this talk.
