CFP: Peter Greenaway: The Impure Image (Spain) (6/30/06; 11/23/06-11/25/06)

full name / name of organization:




Murcia, 23rd-25th November 2006

   This congress is intended to analyze the work of the British film
director Peter Greenaway, concerning both cinema and art. He is one of
the most important film makers nowadays, as well as one of the
philosophical reformers of cinema, a draughtsman, a painter, a writer,
a critic and a organizer of exhibitions. This multifaceted personality
makes it necessary a cross-disciplinary approach when studying his
work. In this congress, and in accordance with its subtitle,
Greenaway's work will be analyzed from three different and essential
perspectives which, likewise, will structure the three days of

1. Cinema. Papers related to any aspect of Peter Greenaway's filmic
practice and theory will be accepted in this area, specially those
questions concerning the cinematographic discipline itself.

2. Body. This area is intended to examine one of the main themes in
Greenaway's poetics, body. Papers dealing with the study of corporal
representation both in his filmic and his artistic practice will be

3. Painting. There is no doubt that the reference to painting is one
of the common places in Greenaway's cinema. We would like to encourage you
to present papers concerning not only the relationship between cinema and
painting but also between cinema and any other form of art.
