Sexuality in dystopian movies, Tuesday’s lecture, was a surprising success. Contrary to the Sunday’s workshop which didn’t happen, for the talk about twenty people came! I was naturally nervous to speak in English, which I really don’t know perfectly, in front of mostly unknown people. But the audience was kind to me, almost no technical problems occured (which are always killers even of the best lectures).
We went through Louis Althusser and his article „Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses“, term „dystopia“ and watched exerpts from movies such as Nineteen-Eighty Four, THX 1138, The Handmaid’s Tale, Brave New World, Logan’s Run and as a cherry on a pie Demolition Man.
Presentation from the lecture is publicly accessible here.
As I was writing in my previous post since DAY 11 I finished my first, „psychogeography“ phase of the residency. Preparation and presentation of the lecture began the second. The informations gathered for the lecture will be used for my final school work „Dystopic Systems in Japanese Anime“ as well as for the exhibition on sexuality and ideology I will have from May 2015 in GASK, Kutná Hora, Czech Republic.
