Experimental Film and Architectural Critique in the Works of British Avant-Garde Filmmakers

Experimental Film and Architectural Critique in the Works of British Avant-Garde Filmmakers This article examines the aesthetics of experimental film as a medium for architectural critique with reference to the urban films of three contemporary British avant-garde filmmakers: Patrick Keiller, William Raban and John Smith. It argues that the aesthetics of experimental film, dependent on the employment of certain cinematic techniques, such as montage, mediate visuality beyond the focused perspectival vision to create critical mediations of contemporary global urbanisms. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
