The artists, writers and curators in this group are concerned with the theoretical and historical study of artists' moving image, through their practice.

The group's concerns cover film, at the intersections of cinema and architecture - what lies beyond the clichés of cinema's visual history and experimental film practices in relation to theories of place. The British Artists Film and Video Study Collection, and the establishment of an MRes Art: Moving Image course founded with LUX provide an unprecedented context for developing the expanded field of moving image research within contemporary art.
