Lecture by Katharina D. Martin | Date: 1st February 2016 at 10.45 | Location: AKI ArtEZ Academy of Art & Design | Room 0.53

This lecture is as much an analysis of certain aspects in Orson Welles’ “The Lady from Shanghai”, as it is an introduction to the philosophical concept of faciality, developed by the French Philosopher Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari.

Katharina D. Martin will elaborate on notions like: signifier, signified, signification and sign, to then clarify the notion of the 'machine of faciality' and its effect within Orson Welles' work. The lecture will be followed by the screening of "The Lady from Shanghai".
