In his keynote lecture, prof. Erkki Huhtamo will discuss the magic lantern from the point of view of the screen and the rich cultural imagination that surrounded magic lantern projections.

Understanding the magic lantern as a performative screen practice, he will outline the principles of Screenology, a media-archaeological approach to the screen, which he has been developing for over a decade. The lecture will be richly illustrated with material from Huhtamo's own collection. 

The keynote is part of the international conference A Million Pictures: History, Archiving, and Creative Re-use of Educational Magic Lantern Slides.
