According to Mikhail Iampolski, intertextuality is a helpful concept for understanding processes by which allusions to other films or texts are used in filmic figurations; it can also guide us to explore complex chains of associations that make up the energy and power of individual films. These are processes of making and seeing that are motivated by intertextuality - acts of "poiesis". So what would make more sense in the context of media studies than to investigate them in the form of experimental audiovisual works? In her lecture "The Poiesis of Cinematic Allusionism", Catherine Grant (Birkbeck, University of London) discusses some of her own videographic works (with a focus on her 2019 video essay "The Haunting of the Headless Woman"). LA MUJER SIN CABEZA (The Headless Woman, Lucrecia Martel, RA 2008) will be screened after the lecture. (er)
The Cinepoetics Lectures are organized by an eponymous research group at the Freie University Berlin. (20.1.)
