(Lecture in German)

Pier Paolo Pasolini’s relationship with the postwar neo-avantgardes is exceedingly tense. This becomes evident when after Pasolini’s murder in 1975, Edoardo Sanguineti, one of their leading exponents in Italy, proclaims: "Finally we’ve shaken it off, this confusionist remnant of the 1950s." This tension is all the more remarkable, as the neo-avantgardes appear quite critical of capitalism and understand their creative work as decidedly political.

Focusing on the work of Isidore Isou who, just as Pasolini, turns from literature to filmmaking in the 1950s, film scholar Bernhard Groß (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena) will explore the intricacies of this intellectual 'enmity' in his lecture Der Geifer des Autors. Filmende Schriftsteller, Lettristen und ihre Manifeste. Afterwards, TRAITÉ DE BAVE ET D'ETERNITÉ (FR 1951, Isidore Isou) will be screened.

Admission to the lecture is free. Tickets to the screening are available fro the usual prices of the Kino Arsenal. For daily updated hygienic measures, see: www.arsenal-berlin.de
