The notion of “tacit cinematic knowledge” designates a broad variety of epistemic environments in which knowledge is configured in and through cinematic practices. As an operative term, tacit cinematic knowledge, is supposed to help scholars and practitioners in their engagements with moving images as everchanging aesthetic and epistemic configurations.
The podcast series engages with the potential spaces in which we encounter filmic images in our everyday lives. On smartphones or billboards, in airports, in our working environments and laboratories – but always outside of the cinematic dispositif. Together with their guests, Dr. Rebecca Boguska and Sophia Gräfe discover cultural phenomena and visual worlds that would not have existed without film.
This publication introduces the concept of tacit cinematic knowledge to designate a broad variety of epistemic environments in which knowledge is configured in and through cinematic practices, and in the interaction with moving images – from political campaigns to medical care, corporate communications and the study of animal behavior.
The online conference entitled “Histories of Tacit Cinematic Knowledge” took place from September 24 to September 26, 2020, in the virtual space of the Goethe University Frankfurt. It was also the final conference of the first cohort of PhD students at the Graduate Research Training Program 2279 “Configurations of Film.” This webpage provides access to the pre-recorded talks and keynotes, which, drawing on the notion of “tacit cinematic knowledge,” explored the groundwork for theorizing implicit epistemic templates configured by film forms and techniques.
