The Cinepoetics Lectures are a very special format in the center’s work since they stand for interesting talks by internationally acclaimed scholars that are in close contact with our work on the poetologies of audiovisual images. Besides different perspectives from the field of film studies, the lectures feature a wide range of influences from the humanities, most importantly from media studies and the arts. The Cinepoetics Lectures are a collaboration with Kino Arsenal (Institute for Film and Video Art), open to the public and free of charge. Each lecture is accompanied by a film screening that complements the talk’s topic. For the film, Kino Arsenal will charge the usual admission fees.
Following Mikhail Iampolski, intertextuality is a rich framework for studying the processes by which allusions to other films or texts are used in cinematic figuration, as well as for exploring the intricacies of the chains of associations that come to produce the energy and force of individual films. In an age of increasing multimedia scholarship, how better to explore filmic allusionism than to experiment with working through it to materialize new acts of poeisis, audiovisual works of comparative screen studies? In her lecture, “The Poiesis of Cinematic Allusionism,” Catherine Grant (Birkbeck, University of London) will discuss some of her videographic studies, focusing particularly on her 2019 work “The Haunting of The Headless Woman.”
After the talk, LA MUJER SIN CABEZA (Lucrecia Martel, ARG 2008) will be screened. The lecture is free of charge and starts on January 20 at 6pm at the Kino Arsenal at Potsdamer Platz. The admission for the screening corresponds with the usual fees of the Kino Arsenal.
