Abstract

This article aims to explore how filming can be understood as a method from the perspective of the Feminist New Materialisms, the Affective Turn and the Artistic and Visual Methods. To do so, the method is examined in a fieldwork session of the MiCreate project. This session was done with a group of 11-12 years old students of a primary school based in Barcelona. From this case study, the article claims that filming becomes an affective experience of knowledge. The method affects the fieldwork as well as it is developed in its relation with it. Furthermore, it focuses on the bodies, movements and affects of the experience from the situatedness and partiality of the camera. The method modifies the researchers and participants’ power to act and enables their response-ability. Through the affective and affirmative capacity, the method allows generating knowledge about the research, the contextualized experience and the method itself
