The Films of Marcel Broodthaers

On May 15, the University of Chicago’s Film Studies Center hosts “The Films of Marcel Broodthaers: Between Art History and Film Studies.”

According to the announcement: “This event is a rare opportunity to screen his 35mm films, and to explore their formal and political audacity as “reading exercises.” While Broodthaers’ films and conceptual works openly engage the history of French literary practice, they also critically examine France’s predominance within art and political history.” The event includes a keynote by Benjamin Buchloh, and roundtable with Bruce Jenkins, Anne Rorimer and Rachel Haidu.
