Preparation for the 32. Film- und Fernsehwissenschaftliches Kolloquium (FFK) in Potsdam begins, a colloquium for the latest researches and results in film studies. Together with fabulous fellow members including Frédérique Dubois (www.netzdoku.org), we will try to reflect about a new and extended understanding of cinematic and artistic liberty in interaction with scientific procedures.

a good experience: During two days, together with the
students of Clemens v. Wedemeyer I tried to explore the
essay as a form. Through his historic origins, picked up later
on by Adorno, we focussed on day
two on the video essay. Hoping to have succeeded in
providing some useful information for these smart students,
I already prepare myself for the third round of TEMPORAL
DISORDER with Kevin B. Lee!!! <<< LINK

Happy to prepare the upcoming Temporal Disorder-episode, in which we will discuss the temporal structure of linearity, which is possibly only a point of view.
Caspar Stracke's neo-psychedelic film essay presents speculative concepts like an idea of the Deleuzian philosopher Manuel DeLanda, whose book 'A thousand years of nonlinear history" has been a huge interdisziplinary success all over the sciences. redux/time/OUT OF JOINT is built in plateaus as well in an esthetic manner as a textual meaning. A movie about a reversal time understanding, which is moreover self referential in its representation. www.temporaldisorder.com

This summer semester, I will engage myself in the genre of 'Amateur film', which is often also called 'Home movie'. Being a long time ridiculed as a kind of hobby for geeks, only practiced for passion and enjoyment but not for business, at least it is worth to reconsider this definition. Together with Prof. Christina Natlacen, I want to explore that widely unexplored and foremost underestimated field, which turned in the last years into a quite popular platform for artistic expression.

As well as general informations about the essay since its
transfer into the moving image, there will be also a
documentation about the emergence and progress of the movie
"Vom Versuch einer Kritik". What is nowadays
significance of the essayism in regard to cinema and
contemporary art? As an initial suspicion, essayism as a
method can be equated to critic. Representation thus
appears as the focal point in which widely divergent
forms of critique and their heterogeneous cultures
lend themselves to comparative discussion. That`s
why the movie will explore through the (film) essay as a
form those untrodden paths of a field, which overcome media
forms and sciences.
