The idea of expanded cinema came into being at the turn of the 50s and 60s. In recent years, it has marked its presence in relation to the phenomena that exist in visual and audiovisual arts. Today, it is most visible in experimental film and video installations. However, this is only a fragment of the potential of expanded cinema in its broad sense. One can imagine a cinema that uses many screens placed freely in a specified or unspecified space. Screens could be made of different “materials”, creating movable structures of changing shapes and sizes. Many expanded cinema creators experiment with projectors. In this case, the spectrum of possibilities is determined by films without a projector, but also projections without films.
