Kill Me Sarah silverpoetics archives & mythologie des lucioles An Open Letter to Our Colleagues Film and Museum Professionals in Russia and Abroad On 27 October 2014, the entire professional staff of the Moscow Cinema Museum – 22 employees, including all curators, archivists and film programmers – delivered to the Minister for Culture of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Medinsky, a letter informing him they resign their posts because of the impossibility of continuing their work under the new leadership of the Museum.

About UbuWeb Film & Video UbuWeb is pleased to present thousands of avant-garde films & videos for your viewing pleasure. However, it is important to us that you realize that what you will see is in no way comparable to the experience of seeing these gems as they were intended to be seen: in a dark room, on a large screen, with a good sound system and, most importantly, with a roomful of warm, like-minded bodies. However, we realize that the real thing isn't very easy to get to. We realize that the films we are presenting are of poor quality. UbuWeb art & research The arguments in this paper are, from the point of view of academic research, unsoundly reasoned and quite unsubstantiated. The paper’s polemical tone perhaps generates more heat than light. It is not intended to be a closely-argued presentation of empirical data or a contribution to critical theory. I present it simply because I feel that it verbalises many things said to me by colleagues and friends about the conditions in which they work, which perhaps, bound as they are to institutions, they are unable to say themselves, and that many reading it will recognise at least some of the aspects that I’ve summarised. ‘Research’ for the purpose of the RAE is to be understood as original investigation undertaken in order to gain knowledge and understanding.
