My Culture, I Perform It, I Can Change It: Film, Audience and Cultural Critique

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

In this article I analyze how filming and screening rituals and other cultural performances
can contribute to a process of distancing and reflection for all people
involved—anthropologists, filmmakers, performers and participants. In particular I
address the question as to whether such use of the camera can contribute to cultural
critique, here defined as a mode of inquiry and reflection that involves the
development of new concepts to grasp and influence what is emerging in the present.
I argue that the use of audiovisual media is a strong method to create spaces
for critical reflection and dialogue, which is a precondition for cultural critique.
