The animate! book: Rethinking Animation


In stock

animate! is a groundbreaking commissioning project established by Arts Council England and Channel 4 to support risk taking and experimental animation works for television. Exploding the traditional preconceptions of what animation is and could be, animate! exists to break down barriers and challenge expectations. The animate! book explores the vibrant discourses round the project, taking it as a jumping off point for a wide ranging exploration of the relationship between art and animation and the place of animation and its concepts in contemporary art practice. Includes essays: Animation = A Multiplication of Artforms? by Edwin Carels; Build It and They Will Come: animate! and the Extended Imagination Gareth Evans, with Dick Arnall Occupation: Animation and the Visual Arts by Ian White; Curating The Animators by Angela Kingston; Artist interviews by Mike Sperlinger with AL + AL, Paul Bush, Ann Course, Inger Lise Hansen, Jonathan Hodgson, Tim Hope, Ruth Lingford, Tim Macmillan
