“The Image Behind the Image: The Crisis of the Movement-Image in Gilles Deleuze”

At the core of Gilles Deleuze’s works on cinema lies the contrast between the two regimes of the image; the movement-image and the time-image. Although Deleuze starts the first volume of Cinema, by saying “This study is not a history of cinema” and adds that he merely attempts at a classification of images and signs, Deleuze’s study traces the historical development of cinema and demonstrates how the crisis of the movement-image makes it possible for a new regime of the image to emerge. This seminar will be focusing on the crisis of the movement-image, arguing that images do not just serve to reveal images, sounds, and emotions, but that while a regime of the image makes certain things visible, it also renders others invisible. It will be demonstrated, together with the crisis of the movement-image, how the previously invisible and inaudible become established at the foundations of a new cinematographic aesthetic.

Hakan Yücefer was born in 1980 in Istanbul. He graduated from the Department of Philosophy at Galatasaray University, and went on to write his doctoral thesis on Aristotle’s understanding of the soul at the University of Paris 1. He has translated several books of Gilles Deleuze into Turkish, including Bergsonculuk [Bergsonism] (Otonom, 2006), Kıvrım, Leibniz ve Barok [The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque] (Bağlam, 2006), Issız Ada ve Diğer Metinler [Desert Islands and Other Texts] (with Ferhat Taylan, Bağlam, 2009), and Anlamın Mantığı [The Logic of Sense] (Norgunk, 2015). He was the editor of the Deleuze special edition of Cogito magazine, titled “Gilles Deleuze: Ortadan Başlamak” [Gilles Deleuze: Beginning from the Middle] (Issue 82, Winter 2016).
