To all the lost tapes
We were invited by On & For Production and Distribution to produce a creative report on the new Dummies workshop series. As artist and curator, peers and dummies before anything else, we were both present when it was launched in 2019, in Brussels, with a roundtable on artists' moving image (AMI) distribution that focused particularly on the Belgian context. One year later, in 2020, we participated in a virtual Dummies workshop on AMI production. When signing up for these workshops, one is asked to submit two questions that will be addressed to the panel of experts. The accumulation of these questions, of this matter, has become our focal point for this report. While a good number of the questions posed by the Dummies workshop participants were discussed and debated during the public moments, some of them were left suspended and have remained present ever since. We invite you to ponder the questions, both lost and found, in our text and image contribution to this publication.
