Panel: Appearing as such but not necessarily so

Ghosts, spirits, apparitions, the undead, and disembodied voices make their appearances in the panelists’ works. They embody a crucial element of cinema, a substance of film which often remains unaddressed: the non-verbal, that which uncouples from the screen, voices and images outside and folded into the images that are given to be seen: Creating a non localized space of cinematic experience, re-materializing the immaterial third image and thus raising new questions regarding an aesthetics of cinema.

Panelists: Lucien Castaing-Taylor/Véréna Paravel (Sensory Ethnography Lab, Harvard, Forum Expanded 2013), Constanze Ruhm (Wien, Forum Expanded 2007, 2010, 2012, 2013), Philip Scheffner (Berlin, Forum 2007, 2010, 2012).
