Diecke, Josephine; Basaldella, Dennis (2018). Digitizing marginal objects – amateur films from the GDR in color. In: Media history from the margins, CSF Summer Seminar, Monte Verità, 19 August 2018 - 24 August 2018, 1-6.

Abstract

[Blog-Beitrag im Vorfeld des an der Konferenz gehaltenen Vortrages mit Diskussionsrunde].
The Film Colors projects of the University of Zurich and the Filmmuseum Potsdam joined forces, in order to digitize selected color films from the Filmmuseum’s holdings. This blog post focuses on the results of a cooperation between the SNSF project Film Colors : Technologies, Cultures, Institutionslocated at the University of Zurich (Switzerland) and the Filmmuseum Potsdam (Germany), established by Josephine Dieckeand Dennis Basaldella. The aim is to present an innovative collaboration that brings together specialized knowledge in the realms of film production and film technology with a particular focus on typically marginalized topics, such as amateur filmmaking and film stock manufacturing in selected historical contexts. How can both approaches enrich the debates about the preservation, digitization and circulation of marginal objects?
