  • Climate Control, Modernism, and Mass Production

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Air-conditioning (AC) made images modern. It enabled two of modernity’s paradigmatic and seemingly opposite visual forms: abstract painting and the mass-produced image. AC transformed art conservation, securing the field’s scientific authority and adapting it to the demands of modernist painting. AC also played a crucial role in the development of industrial mass production, including the production of “mass images” in newspapers and magazines and on film. In both cases, AC transformed the labor of image maintenance and production by de-emphasizing the roles of gesture and manual inscription in favor of environmental management. Rather than touch up a damaged canvas, the twentieth-century conservator preferred to ... Read More

  • Dancing the Dance of Another: Allegory, the Diagram, and Suspiria (2018)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Nothing lets me think more clearly through a problem than reading and alternating between two mysteries at the same time.The climax of Luca Guadagnino’s 2018 adaptation of the 1977 horror film Suspiria presents the viewer with a mystery. Suspiria’s narrative follows Susie Bannion, an American ingenue who comes to Berlin in the autumn of 1977 to audition for the renowned all-woman Markos Dance Company. Susie’s audition is impressive, and soon she is preparing to dance the lead role in the group’s upcoming performance, a visceral exploration of postwar women’s experience titled Volk. The lead choreographer, Madame Blanc, invests Susie with confidence and more: it turns out that the dance company is a cover for a ... Read More

  • Ways of Lying: Parafiction in Contemporary Latin America

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2009, Carrie Lambert-Beatty noted the emergence of fiction as an “important category in recent art.”1 She was, of course, not referring to fiction as is traditionally understood in the humanities but rather to certain “unruly experiments with the untrue.”2 Her article “Make-Believe: Parafiction and Plausibility” dissected a number of such experiments,3 a group of interdisciplinary contemporary artistic practices that produced “fictions that [were] experienced, however briefly, as fact.”4 Lambert-Beatty proposed the term “parafictional” to refer to this phenomenon and explained that “with various degrees of success, for various durations, and for various purposes, these fictions are experienced as fact. They ... Read More

  • Embalmed Air: The Case of the Cinematic Bubble

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Cinema and other forms of screen-based media have many ways of representing the air, of somehow rendering its presence in an image or a soundtrack palpable. The air’s kinetic interaction with solid objects in the form of wind, its saturation with liquid particles in the form of fog or steam, and its intimate implication in the movements of the breathing body all testify to its tangible profilmic materiality.1 One of the most complex and least attended of the air’s many onscreen revelations, however, is the bubble.Bubbles seem to have drawn the attention of both amateur and professional filmmakers from the medium’s formative days. Georges Méliès’ magical “trick” film Les Bulles de savon animées / Soap Bubbles ... Read More

  • Artaud’s Contagious Cries: Virtuality as Aurality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The plague takes dormant images, latent disorder and suddenly carries them to the point of the most extreme gestures. Theatre also takes gestures and develops them to the limit. Just like the plague, it reforges the links between what does and does not exist, between the virtual nature of the possible and the material nature of existence.The viral and the virtual bear an uncanny affinity in an age marked by a deadly global pandemic and a profusion of new media. Two works by Antonin Artaud are particularly timely to think through contagion and technology together in the current environment, where the shock effect of real life exceeds the foresight of artistic representation. During a global scourge, life itself ... Read More

  • Cultivating History: Sergei Eisenstein’s The General Line and the Cinema
           of Agrarian Transition

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: “There is no material more discredited in cinema than the village. There is nothing more difficult, nothing more frightening for the director. Yet there is nothing more necessary.”1 So begins an article published by Sergei Eisenstein in 1926 upon commencing work on The General Line (1929). Secured by the mythic status of the Lumière brothers’ Workers Leaving the Factory (1895), wherein the “first camera in the history of cinema was pointed at a factory,” cinema has often been taken to be the art of industrial modernity.2 Following what Inga Pollmann identifies as a “mutual definition of cinema as a modern medium and modernity as cinematic,” film scholars have often situated prewar European cinema within the context ...

  • Hate Speech in Threads: Stitching and Posting a Resistance in the Tiny
           Pricks Project

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On February 24, 2020, President Donald J. Trump tweeted the following: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We are in contact with everyone and all relevant countries. CDC World Health have been working hard and very smart. Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”1 The first sentence of this tweet was then shortly after reposted on the Instagram account @tinypricksproject, this time in red thread on a blue and white surgical mask worn by an elderly person (figure 1).2 The tweet is stitched on a mask, an object that has become indispensable since the COVID-19 pandemic, that acts as a textile canvas. The stitched words reach deep into the mask, thus rendering the object useless, an act akin ... Read More

  • Refoliating Vietnam in the Post-9/11 American Homeland: Debra
           Granik’s Leave No Trace

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The spectacular images of terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, evoked a variety of cultural and historical memories in regulating the shock. For most spectators all over the world, the conventional aesthetics of the Hollywood film, an American product par excellence, ironically served as the handiest framework to register the sublime event. Most Americans remembered the recent domestic terrorist bombing in Oklahoma City in 1995. The 9/11 attack, some observed, was the worst intelligence failure and a cunning surprise attack ever since Pearl Harbor. Others immediately feared that it might be caused by nuclear weapons, and the collapses of the twin towers reminded them of the two ... Read More

  • Sex, or the Illegible: AIDS Video Art and the Erotics of Abstraction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A typeface “A” emerges from an empty black screen, its faded orange hues casting an extended glow across the otherwise impervious background. After a moment’s pause, this background is slowly eclipsed. A textured image of whites and purples fades in and takes its place; it might be marble, liquid captured in stasis (figure 1). Stasis is, however, shortly met by motion; a shadowed overlay of two men performing anal intercourse begins to play, at times taking on a glitch-like repetition, at times tending toward a rhythmic sensuality. As if responding to this newfound corruption, the once-prominent “A” fades out, absolving its engagement in the video’s graphic hedonism and resigning itself to a plane of total ... Read More

  • Spectatorship’s Scenes beside the Screen

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Caetlin Benson-Allott’s The Stuff of Spectatorship: Material Cultures of Film and Television is an invigorating study of the material culture that surrounds spectatorial and cinephilic environments, recentering what is taken for granted in spectatorship studies to demonstrate how “stuff” shapes the viewing experience in fundamental yet unacknowledged ways. The book makes a significant intervention into spectatorship studies, arguing that what is often dismissed as peripheral in examinations of viewing environments actually influences and alters how viewers make sense of media objects. This approach accounts for diverse objects and experiences surrounding the scene of the screen, including the format of ephemeral ... Read More
