Poetics and Politics – Jacques Rancière as a Guest

GABBLA, 2008

In September, the French philosopher Jacques Rancière will be Fellow at the Collaborative Research Centre 626 "Aesthetic Experience and the Dissolution of Artistic Limits" of the FU Berlin. On Sept. 24 he will deliver a short lecture at Arsenal titled "Narrations of Time and Space". Beforehand, the film GABBLA (Inland, Algera/F 2008) by the young Algerian director Tariq Teguia will be shown. It was screened last year in the competition in Venice. GABBLA tells the story of a topographer in the Algerian South-Oran region, where he is confronted with police violence, Islamist violence and the migration of Africans to Europe. The times mesh: The present is haunted by the past.

In cooperation with the CRC 626 of the FU Berlin. On Sept. 21, a public lecture titled "The Reality Effect and the Politics of Fiction" will be held at ICI.
