ACTORS & EXTRAS. Argos Centre for Art & Media, Brussels, 2009. Organized and published in association with Siemens Arts Program, Munich. 168 pp. 24 x 18 cm. ISBN 9789076855004 In English.
Five authors explore the dynamic between actor(s) and extra(s): George Didi-Huberman's contribution "People Exposed, People as Extras" looks into how cinema represents the masses; Sven Lutticken highlights the performance tradition in the visual arts in relation to the producing of subjectivity; Paul Willemsen composes a typology of the extra and subsequently gives attention to the aberrant status of the extra in modern cinema and contemporary art; Thomas Trummer's "Volonte Generale: Extras in Film and Democracy" questions the responsibilty of the anonymous individual; "The Passing Actor: Sketch of a Renaissance" by Jean-Louis Comolli analyzes how the concept of acting in a documentary has a different interpretation than in a fiction film. The last part of the publication describes the selected works in the exhibition. Volume is in very good condition.
