Event Description : EXHIBITION "Footnotes on Documentary Practice : The beginnings of enquiry"

The exhibition at Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan with the students of the Creative
Documentary Course (CDC) is a proposal for Unravelling, Gleaning and Fragmenting as modes of enquiry into documentary film. Footnotes on Documentary Practice invites conversations and questions around seeing, framing, thinking and listening to the world and to ourselves, as documentary practitioners. The exhibition seeks to find ways to articulate, through multiple forms and experiments, the ephemeral processes of making and witnessing in a landscape of wildly fluctuating truths. Do our responses require a new set of ethics as we manoeuvre this complex terrain? And what of our increasingly tenuous relationship to questions around reality and representations of it?
The students at CDC have been through a journey of reflection and making for several months as part of their course. Hence the processes leading up to the exhibition will be within frames of footnotes, working notes, annotations and drafts. We are looking for forms for tentativeness, restless queries, unfinished rummaging and incomplete but significant discoveries. The expectations from documentary tropes are shifting and there are few footholds for reinventing and unlearning. The exhibition will attempt to inhabit this place of difficulty and simultaneously a possible freedom, within this shift.
