Hi all:
  In an essay published in the 2002 Documenta catalogue, Michael Nash pointed out that, “much writing on video and film in the gallery can too easily gloss ‘sitting in a cinema’ with ‘passivity,’ or ‘mobility’ with ‘freedom’….” As Nash goes on to elaborate, going to the movies in Puerto Rico, Lagos or Mumbai is to encounter a very different, active, call-and-response approach to spectatorship. 
  Can someone point me to writings on spectatorship practices in Puerto Rico, Lagos, Mumbai or elsewhere?  A description of the practices of Italian viewing audiences by Umberto Eco is widely circulated, but I have yet to find articles that focus on the groups that Nash listed.
