Description - Truth or Dare by Gail Pearce

"Truth or Dare" is the innovative product of a Whitechapel Gallery conference, bringing together renowned artists, filmmakers, writers and curators. "Truth or Dare" examines the clash between the authenticity claimed by documentaries and their association with imagination and experimental contemporary art.An experienced group of practitioners, artists, and theorists here question this binary - and the idea of documentary itself - in a cross-disciplinary volume that will force us to reconsider how competing interests shape filmmaking. As the distinction between different art forms becomes more and more blurred, "Truth or Dare" explores the shift from two separate entities of documentary film and contemporary art to the obscuring of boundaries.It is an edited collection based on a two day conference held in 2006, where artists, filmmakers, writers and curators met to discuss moving image used by artists and documentary makers.It provides transcriptions of panellists in conversations at the conference, and a large number of stills depicting moving image artists' work.
