Caroline Martel has a BA in Communications (1996) and an MA in Media Studies from Concordia University (2001) and is currently a PhD candidate in Communications Studies (Concordia University, Montréal) and a documentary filmmaker/artist; her work uses historical narrative in experiential and experimental ways. She has a special interest in archives, invisible histories, and audio/visual technologies and heritage.
Spectacles du monde, her 35-screen installation revisiting a slate of Expo 67 cinematic experiments, was commissioned by the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal's exhibition In Search of Expo 67. Over the last year, she has been involved in Expo 67-related exhibitions as a researcher and filmmaker for the Centre d’histoire de Montréal (Explosion 67 – Terre des jeunes) and the Place des Arts (Expo 67: Place aux arts!). She remains dedicated to integrating theory and practice, and her work, under the supervision of Dr. Charles Acland, focuses on the place where the moving image meets the history of technology.
