Film has afforded us many sequences where thought detaches itself from the image and leaps out of the screen in search of the viewer. Examples can be found in the form of improvised actions like the scene of Marceline in Chronique d’un été by Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin, when she is walking through Place de la Concorde in Paris and spontaneously starts to narrate an experience with her father in a Nazi concentration camp; others can be found in more abstract fortuitous forms like the street scene recorded by Jean-Luc Godard and D.A. Pennebaker for the unfinished film project One A.M. (One American Movie) where the poet Amiri Baraka and a group of musicians deploy their bodies in the public space to appropriate the time of the film. The line of flight that opens from the screen towards the minds of the spectators comes from these formless moments of cinema. These well-known scenes can be used to reconceive the course of thought once it abandons the image; in other words, when it detaches itself from it and reaches out to the spectator through numerous recourses like the black screen that introduces Gilles Deleuze’s irrational cut between sequences or the blank white screen that makes the projection mechanism visible. 

This symposium will examine the assemblage of images and space for the commonality opened between them. Likewise, it will address issues related with this outside of film, and of photography. Based on a series of projections, viewings, reflections and the practice of certain artistic methodologies, we will exercise the power that lies in seeing, studying and thinking images together.

International seminar: deadline for presenting projects, May 18, 2016. Free registration to attend the seminar from June 1, 2016.
Workshops: free registration until June 10, 2016
