About the Event
More often than we know it, the surface of things encapsulates a deviant story or materiality that flees from the present time or from expected modes of perception. Be it as ways to maintain power, as fossilized expressions of marginalization or as delusions, we see secrets as an important motif to critically approach History, Science and all modes of accumulated knowledge.
As part of The Cursed Assembly‘s programme, a new series of gatherings will facilitate a discussion around secrets & secrecy, taking films as a starting point for a conversation. We will gather on every last Wednesday of the month, and each gathering will focus on a different mode through which secrets come to be.
Each session will consist of a short contextualization of a movie, a screening, and a discussion. We want to create a space to watch movies together, but we also emphasize the discussion-based part of it. We want to know what you think! The discussion will follow the film, but the topic will most likely feed forward into the viewing of the film itself.
