Symmetry Film Debate Art Science

Posted in Events on

In de dans- en operafilm Symmetry en de bijbehorende documentaireSymmetry Unravelled komen de kunsten en wetenschap op een bijzondere wijze samen. Filmmaker Ruben van Leer combineerde dans en opera met de hightech omgeving van de Large Hadron Collider in het Zwitserse Cern.

Naar aanleiding van beide films organiseert de Akademie van Kunsten een kritisch debat over de relatie tussen kunst en wetenschap. Kunnen kunstenaars en wetenschappers nog van elkaar leren? En zo ja, wat en hoe? Hoe stappen kunstenaars en wetenschappers over de grenzen heen van hun eigen disciplines en welke vaardigheden zijn daarvoor nodig? Ook het feit dat CERN een kunstbeleid voert is interessant. Waarom doen ze dat, hoe doen ze dat, en wat hopen ze er mee te bereiken?

Beinvloedingsmachines: Cinema en Waanzin

In deze lezing geef Patricia Pisters een overzicht van de verschillende manieren waarop cinema en waanzin met elkaar zijn verbonden.

WORKSHOP & SYMPOSIUM FILM AND FEMINIST FILM THEORIES

20 mei 2015 19.00 - 21.00   EYE Filminstitute Netherlands, Amsterdam

What has changed in the field of film and film studies since the 1970s, when Laura Mulvey published her seminal essay Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema in Screen?

EYE Film Institute Netherlands and the University of Groningen will host a Symposium on Film & Feminist Film Theories, including a workshop and a special program accompanying the book launch of the publication Feminisms (Amsterdam University Press).

From 7-9 pm, the symposium will witness the launch of a completely new volume of the international book series, The Key Debates: Feminisms, edited by Laura Mulvey and Anna Backman Rogers. The presentation will be delivered by Jeroen Sondervan on behalf of Amsterdam University Press, followed by a roundtable discussion involving the editors of the volume on Feminisms, film and media studies scholars, and members of the Research School for Media Studies (RMeS), moderation by Patricia Pisters.

The roundtable discussion will focus on cutting-edge and contemporary theorising in the field of feminist film theory. The discussion will centre on questions such as: What has changed in the field of film and film studies since the 1970s, when Laura Mulvey published her seminal essay “Visual Pleasure & Narrative Cinema” in Screen in 1975? Why and how to study gender-related questions in the field of film and TV? What was and is the impact of feminist films and projects on individuals and culture?

As part of the event, fragments will be screened of Laura Mulvey’s spectacular avant-garde movies, made in part with Peter Wollen.
