Unnamed

Third session of the informal meetings between peers from the audiovisual, sound, and media arts community.

PAM (Platform for Audiovisual and Media arts) shares knowledge about the development, production, distribution, presentation, and reflection of audiovisual and media arts. With this aim we started PAM p.m, gatherings where this exchange can take place in an informal setting. Pieter-Paul Mortier (Courtisane, KASK) and Marie Logie (Auguste Orts) assembled a group of well-versed conversation partners ranging from producers to curators, artists and filmmakers, at your
service.

Sofia Dati has recently been appointed visual and audiovisual arts programmer at Beursschouwburg, Brussels. She has been part of the curatorial team in WIELS, Brussels, since 2019, where she is currently curatorial assistant for the group exhibition Risquons-Tout. Sofia studied Literature at La Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3, Cultural Studies at KU Leuven and Curatorial Studies at the Fine Arts Academy in Rome, and has written for the magazines Po&Sie, Arshake and Conceptual Fine Arts, among others.

Luckily she grew up with the knowledge that patience is the key to happiness. She graduated as an experimental filmmaker and works as an editor, cinematographer and director in cinema beyond genres and formats. She equally loves well balanced steady high-def shots and lo-fi trash, as well as analogue visual experiments, as long as the poetry shines through. She teaches at the Film and Media Arts departments of LUCA, Brussels and KASK School of Arts, Ghent.
