Ongoing Research

Together with Miguel Fernandez-Labayén (Madrid) I have a project about the histories of the New American Cinema tours in Europe and the emergence of European experimental film cultures (2021-2024). I am also researching the Swedish history and context of the film "Finally Got the News" (1970). A long-term project is research on time and experimental film.
