The love affair between art and film started the moment the film camera was invented. A Trip to the Moon is an anthology, with contributions from various writers and artists who investigate this century-long relationship.
A century after the first film experiments, moving image is an inevitable part of our visual culture, available to everyone. One could say that we have now reached the stage after film, a shift in technology as decisive as the invention of film itself. A sad cosequence of the invention of new technologies is that other techniques are assigend to the graveyard. How those shifts, those births and deaths in the history of the moving image, influence and change art is at the core of this book and the eponymous exhibition at Boniers Konsthall in 2012.
