This special double issue of FRAMEWORK appropriates the Surrealist game “exquisite corpse” as a method of creativity to make experimental and collaborative film histories. An “exquisite historiography” offers a flexible framework for working together, inventively exploring new concepts of authorship, and cultivating bonds of community. It orients film history to chance, imagination, and the “hidden.” We encourage serious and playful reflections on and responses to the disciplinary norms of film history, and new forms of film history for our present moment.
We invite new means of authorship, critical fabulations, video essays, reflective and theoretical essays, dialogic exchanges, collective conversations, experimental micro-histories, assemblages and annotations of primary materials, and other creative and experimental responses, including work that focuses on a question (rather than answers one) for this special issue.
