enough to create some confusion in the wide realm of today’s artistic audiovisual production. This is where The Audiovisual Breakthrough comes in: the book is the result of a collaborative project that brought together six international researchers with the view to untangle the reigning confusion regarding these terms. The event presents the book and its design; the discursive concepts are introduced by video examples.
