Besides the Screen is an international research network on the subject of
experimental audiovisual media. It aims to reconfigure the field of screen
studies by refocusing it on the seemingly secondary objects, processes, and
practices that exist within cinema. Besides the Screen also means to
promote an open and horizontal academic environment, favouring
practice-based approaches to research and artist collaborations.
