Life Expectancies: The Body between Exposure and Development
Films by Sandra LAHIRE and Discussion between Elsa RICHARDSON and Kerstin SCHROEDINGER
In the context of the exhibition Looking at the Present through Rear-View Mirrors, artist Kerstin Schroedinger will be showing two films – Arrows (UK, 1984) and Plutonium Blonde (UK, 1986) – by British filmmaker Sandra Lahire (1950-2001). This will be followed by a conversation between Elsa Richardson and Kerstin Schroedinger about the production of emotions and the relation between capitalism and feelings, as considered through moments in history that have challenged the relations between the economy, the body, the image and the mind. Kerstin Schroedinger will expand on this with regard to her performance piece The Alleged Body, which is part of the current exhibition at the Kunstpavillon. The Alleged Body looks at the shift from Fordist to immaterial labour during the 1980s. They will talk about the relation between women’s bodies and (mental) health, within the framework of the capitalist production of emotionality relating to British filmmaker Sandra Lahire’s work.
The event will be held with kind support from CINENOVA – Feminist Film and Video Distribution.
Sandra Lahire (1950-2001) was a British filmmaker who worked around body-image and the social, material, and economic impacts of (capitalism) on the (female) body and self. The screening shows two of her works, each from a larger work cycle. Arrows (1984) is based on a poem by Sylvia Plath and reflects the continuous negotiation between one’s body, the larger political context and the way that society/the camera frames such a body. Plutonium Blonde (1986) explores the toxic effects of Uranium mining.
Elsa Richardson is a lecturer in the history of medicine at the University of Strathclyde Glasgow, affiliated with the Centre for the History of Health and Healthcare. Amongst other things her research considers the relation of heterodox practices, beliefs and movements to mainstream society and culture, focusing in particular on the interaction between medicine and the imagination, psychology and the occult, emotions and science. Her forthcoming monograph examines the place of extraordinary visionary experience in the Victorian scientific and popular imaginary, and her new research project looks at the history of vegetarianism and narratives of wellbeing in the early twentieth century.

Strategies of Conveyance
The workshop will take place in 3 sessions:
First session: 23rd – 25th of May 2016, 6-9 pm
Session 2 and 3 will take place in September 2016 and January 2017. Participants need to be able to attend all sessions of the workshop.
Language: English. Translation to Arabic provided.
The workshop is free of charge.
The workshop series Strategies of Conveyance is conceived as a material-based study group with the aim of producing a collective film. Each of the three sessions will focus on an element of film, such as sound, movement, colour or montage. The workshop intends to reveal and deconstruct practices of visibility in film so that we could shift perspective to elements of the moving image that are not (just) working on a representational level. Through this change of perspective we aim to find forms of filmmaking that challenge attitudes to image making as making visible and destabilise the dominance of the visual within the moving image. In the process of the workshops we will critically discuss images and try to take them apart in order to open up the possibility for other elements of film to form new relations.

‘In Fugue, we see projections of sentences, signs or checkered lines, always modified by a human figure and its movements, which vary in each of the three parts that structure the work. The visual construction acquires a certain common texture that involves the lights, sounds and words. At the same time, the moving body constitutes a real noise superimposing the image, interfering with the shapes we see and reverberating on the audio track. This intense biomechanical choreography disturbs the experience of vision, eliciting the sensitive reorganization of the relations and senses that compose the visible.’ (programme notes by Luis Felipe Flores)
