7 December 2011 to 9 December 2011
Expanding Documentary: Sound, Image, Text 2011 is the eighth biennial documentary conference held in Aotearoa New Zealand. Arising out of a ‘small country’ context, the event has been distinguished over the years by its concern to engage artists, makers, academics, writers, industry professionals and community activists interested in questions of theory and practice.
Focusing on non-fiction and documentary-related work produced within Aotearoa, Australia and the Asia Pacific region, the conference includes presentations of works-in-progress or recently completed works, as well as academic papers.
In 2011, the overarching, interdisciplinary ethos of Expanding Documentary continues the event’s emphasis on new and revised directions in thinking and practice while keeping in sight significant questions of subjectivity, embodiment, ethics, history, politics, economy and technology in the process of making and interpreting documentary works.
Organised in association with The University of Auckland (Department of Film, Television and Media Studies, Faculty of Arts) and Auckland University of Technology (Schools of Communication Studies and Art & Design, Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies).
