"Ni…Ni: La Flaque (Neither…Nor: The Puddle)"
A talk by Kristina Lee Podesva
Saturday, March 7, 5:45pm

Drawing inspiration from Benoît Maire's work, Kristina Lee Podesva’s talk entitled "Ni…Ni: La Flaque (Neither…Nor: The Puddle)" will be centered around the haunting inheritance we have received from Enlightenment thought and institutions, considering it as something that exists as a perpetual, nagging ghost in pedagogical and philosophical spheres. As a way of illustrating this idea and its potential undoing, Podesva will show a series of school scenes from Fellini's film Amarcord, and will present some thoughts on perception, perspective, poetry, and the body as integral elements that break down the regimes of knowledge and power.
