facs of life

a film between deleuze and his students

8 Dec 2010

TATE BRITAIN - Turner Prize Exhibition : Facs of Life

Wednesday 8 December 2010, 14.00–17.50

For the last in the series of the IMAGE IN QUESTION at the Tate Britain The Otolith Group have invited Silvia Maglioni & Graeme Thomson to explore their effort to realize a cinema that would both be an encounter with Deleuze's thought, as well as an encounter with the traces left of a collective process which were the courses taught by Deleuze at Vincennes. The session will include the first UK screening of the film Facs of Life (2009) which they have made with some of the former students from Vincennes, as well as another screening of Through the Letterbox (2010), where a close reading of the footage from the lectures allows for an exploration of an expanded version of their cinematic research/work.

Screenings and excerpts followed by a roundtable discussion with The Otolith Group - Kodwo Eshun and Anjalika Sagar, Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson.
