Event description
an experimental film by Christopher Janke

About this Event

ABOUT THE TICKETING:

Each half hour segment is for one individual or one quarantine pod (folks who have quarantined together and do not need to maintain distance from each other). Reserve your spot with a donation of your choice; suggested sliding scale donation is $2-$10 per person.

LAVA will host a Zoom meeting with Christopher Janke for a Q&A and chat about the project, on each Sunday following the programs. When you register here for the program, you'll also receive via email an invitation to the Zoom chat for the Sunday of the weekend you're attending.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

Hacking up styles from Chris Marker, Marguerite Duras, and Plato, this experimental film is an inquiry into racialized fear and “the turn” from politics to violence—and to what extent politics can ever be distanced from violence. The second in a series, this “episode” evokes and lives in the uneasy time between the election of 2016 and the inauguration of 2017.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Christopher Janke is a poet, artist, dad, and local business owner. He’s interested in the fact that words are always objects, that money always contains a certain level of violence, and that, in agreement with Patrick, ethics are a form of aesthetics. His books of poetry are available, in spite of being called inaccessible. He has an MFA in poetry and one in Studio Art. He teaches at UMass and at Springfield College, and he is the Senior Editor of Slope Editions, a small poetry press. He can be viewed locally somewhat-grumpily crunching numbers at The Rendezvous many Sunday mornings.
