Guattari & AntiPsychiatric Cinema

“Félix Guattari attempted to develop a conception of cinema across a number of short and occasional pieces that would parallel his more focused work on minor literature. In this presentation I develop some his major preoccupations and influences, including the cinemas of alternatives to psychiatry in Europe in the early-mid 1970s, and the important role that genre mixing, activist action in supoprt of engaged filmmaking, and access to a-signifying cinematic matter connected with real institutional change played in his thinking.”
