The Spectacle  brof Dysmorphia

The Spectacle
of Dysmorphia

in Moara Passoni’s film Ecstasy

Screening and Discussion, 6 Dec 2021, 19:30

Cinematic narratives of eating disorders run the risk of presenting their characters largely passive – a risk compounded by the fear of ‘contagion’ that haunt the images of bodies affected by these disorders.

Organized by Clio Nicastro
An ICI event in cooperation with the Volkswagen Foundation.

The number of participants at the ICI Berlin is limited. Please register on the event page.  Public Livestream available.

The Other Side brof Italian Thought

The Other Side
of Italian Thought

Emanuele Severino

Symposium, 20 Jan 2022

Emanuele Severino (1929–2020) shows a radically different side of Italian philosophy: unabashedly metaphysical, uncompromisingly Parmenidean, and increasingly recognized as one of the most remarkable and challenging thinkers of the twentieth century — in the words of Italian philosopher Massimo Cacciari, the only alternative to Martin Heidegger.

Organized by Giulio Goggi, Federico Perelda, Damiano Sacco, and Ines Testing. In cooperation with FISSPA University of Padua and the Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Berlin.

Class Struggle in the Psychoanalytic Consulting Room

Lecture, 25 Jan 2022, 20:00

Focusing on examples by British psychoanalysts, including Marion Milner and Christopher Bollas, this talk will attempt to construct an alternative to existing analyses of the encounter between Marxism and psychoanalysis that focus on abstract theories by grounding itself instead in socially and economically contextualised accounts of clinical practice.

A cooperation of the Berlin Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (BiPP), the Cultural Science Institute of the Humboldt University Berlin, the International Psychoanalytic University (IPU), and the ICI Berlin, organized by Wilhelm Brüggen (BIPP), Monika Englisch (BIPP) and Andreas Gehrlach (HU Berlin)

Registration opens on 10 January 2022. Public livestream available.

Violence, Care,

(Self)perceptions Within the Medical Encounter

Symposium, 3-4 Feb 2022

The symposium seeks to address the ambiguities of and tensions among perceptions at the cusp of internal (subjective) and external (social, cultural, political) 'gazes'. What the individual experiences, at either end of the consultation room, is a complex interlacing of personal vicissitudes, global structures, and community practices: a prismatic network in which 'care' and 'violence' are reflected and refracted in a variety of oftentimes overlapping and divergent interpretative modes. 

Organized by Clio Nicastro and Marta-Laura Cenedese

The symposium is co-funded by the ICI Berlin, the VolkswagenStiftung, the Centre Marc Bloch, and the Nordic Summer University.

Deadline for abstracts: 10 Dec 2021

Queeres Kino / Queere Ästhetiken brals Dokumentationen des Prekären

Queeres Kino / Queere Ästhetiken
als Dokumentationen des Prekären

Hg. von  Astrid Deuber-Mankowsky
und Philipp Hanke

Cultural Inquiry, 22

Berlin: ICI Berlin Press, 2021

Open Access

Wenn queeres Kino und queere Ästhetiken das Prekäre dokumentieren, dann intendiert dies auch eine Revolution im Symbolischen. Oder anders formuliert: ihr ästhetisches Unterfangen, Rahmungen zum Vorschein zu bringen, ohne sie zu wiederholen, erweist sich, wie die hier versammelten Beiträge namhafter Film-, Medien- und Queertheoretiker*innen zeigen, als prekäre Form der Dokumentation.

Print version (Paperback) 25 €
