The Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein initiated what has become a very long and multifaceted conversation about James Joyce in relation to film.  He was the first director to contemplate an adaptation of Ulysses, for instance, and the only one to discuss such a project with the author himself. Although that adaptation project never came to fruition, Eisenstein was the first film theorist who used Ulysses and Finnegans Wake as reference points to describe how film worked and how it might continue to evolve in the future. He was also the first filmmaker to apply these concepts in practice.

This session will focus on Samuel Beckett, the preeminent advocate for the clown. In Beckett’s novels, the protagonists and the narrator are often clowns. Waiting For Godot was written for actors who donned the attire of tramp-clowns. Beckett’s inspiration often sprang from silent film— he emulated Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

FEW HOURS LEFT_Avant-Garde Humor and Political Aesthetics

updated: 
Monday, June 10, 2019 - 12:11pm
PAMLA, San Diego, CA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

This panel explores the interconnection of avant-garde humor with forms of political action that defied conventional art and lifestyles. Literally meaning “advance guard” in French, the term holds a military sense that applies to artists and works characterized by their combative nature and their tendency to question the acceptability of norms and traditional aesthetic genres. Avant-garde artists made use of humor as a political weapon that destabilized the status quo by challenging moral values and promoting radical reforms on a sociocultural level.
