AMERICAN MUSEUM OF THE MOVING IMAGE
Permanent Exhibition Planning
The history of the moving image was divided into three sections as an organizational strategy: 1) The Screen, 2) In Front of The Screen, and 3) In Back of The Screen. Each section addressed specific topics in film theory/history; audience and media reception were addressed in "In Front of the Screen" while representation, genre and the manufacturing of stars was addressed in "The Screen". "In Back of the Screen" addressed technology, innovation and production.
