Taking a summer vacation from Deleuze’s Cinema 1, June’s meeting will focus on Slavoj Zizek’s The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, Part 1. The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema offers an introduction into some of Zizek’s most exciting ideas on fantasy, reality, sexuality, subjectivity, desire, materiality and cinematic form. Part 1 explores the fictional structures that sustain our experience of reality and the chaotic netherworld of wild drives and desire that undermine that very experience.
Interested parties are encouraged to join in Thought on Film at point and to draw strange connections to their practice, be it film or not.
