Colour in the 1920s: cinema and its intermedial contexts

In the 1920s, there were intense debates about colour, and its cultural, scientific, philosophical and educational significance. This project aims to investigate the major spheres of colour expression in commercial and experimental motion pictures of the era. Taking cinema as the focus, it will also examine colour's intermedial role in other arts - including commercial and print culture, fashion and industry, theatre and the performing arts - in order to produce a comparative, interdisciplinary study of the impact of colour during a decade of profound social, economic and cultural change.
