Cinematic Image and Historical Experience


On December 4th 2017, Erica Carter will give the Fourth Cinepoetics Lecture at the Berlin Arsenal on "Spectres of Colonial Whiteness." The lecture elaborates on recent reckonings with white ghosts in post-colonial film, connecting these with films including Jean-Marie Ténos' Le Malentendu Colonial (2004), Martin Baer's Weisse Geister (2004) and Claire Denis' Chocolat (1988) as well as Isaac Juliens Installation "Fantôme Afrique."
