Cinepoetics Lecture #11: Joseph Vogl


Inasmuch as Jean-Luc Godard’s PASSION (F/CH 1982) breaks away from script, text, and narrative, the film itself creates a space of transition within which images only react to other images, testing the powers of the visual between the poles of painting and cinema. Pursuing the question of what images are and what they do, Joseph Vogl (Humboldt University of Berlin) focuses on different components related to an ontology of the cinematic image. His lecture “Im Innern des Bildes” undertakes a journey to the “interior of the image” (Godard) – following the path to an entirely possible and unborn world. Afterwards, PASSION will be screened. The Cinepoetics Lectures are organized by Cinepoetics – Center for Advanced Film Studies at Freie Universität Berlin. (er) (17.6.)
