Abstract

This article addresses the most recent projects in early and silent film exhibition at the EYE Film Institute Netherlands (Amsterdam), in particular those promoting users’ remixes of digitized clips from its silent collection. By placing current curatorial strategies within a longer history of the Museum’s changing approaches to preservation and exhibition, the article examines the kind of interaction and historical understanding of silent cinema that “crowd-curated” remixes foster. Digitization, open access, appropriation, and remix open up new and controversial historiographic approaches and curatorial avenues to explore.
