New Issue published APPARATUS 7 (2018)


Apparatus Issue 7 continues the exploration between the "invisible" art of editing and the creative work of women editors in Russia and Eastern Europe, by widening its geographical and chronological scope to include historical and contemporary editing practices and case studies of women editors working in Central and Eastern Europe, who have influenced and continue to shape film form in national contexts and further afield. This issue includes contributions by Raluca Iacob, Anastasia Khodyreva, Daria Shembel, and Jelena Modrić, as well as Szilvia Ruszev's digital études, introducing a new section "Artistic Research", which aims to open up the realm of practice-led research.
