The Desire & Repetition programme is coming back with another screening at London’s Open School East on March 11.
The event –curated by LUX curator-in-residence, Tim Steer –is focused on the relation between repetition, desire, and moving image. Steer has released a four-part series of blog posts to accompany the event, ‘Some Notes on Desire and Repetition’, in which he explores the nature and function of repetition in various films, including The Social Network (part 1), Gilles Deleuze’s ‘D’ for Desire (part 2), Samuel Beckett’s Quad (part 3), and the works of Bruce Nauman (part 4).
Throughout the event, the audience will see a range of films from the last 50 years, including Mike Dunford‘s True Love (1972), Nauman’s Good Boy Bad Boy (1985), Lynn Hershman Leeson‘s Electronic Diaries – Part 1: Confessions Of A Chameleon (1985), Michael Curran‘s Disclaimer (1993), Annika Larsson‘s 40-15 (1999), and Boris Charmatz and César Vayssié‘s Levée (2013).
