Lisa Robertson reads from CINEMA OF THE PRESENT (COACH HOUSE BOOKS)

11am-12 noon + Q&A on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31st 

What if the cinema of the present were a Möbius strip of language, a montage of statements and questions sutured together and gradually accumulating colour? Would the seams afford a new sensibility around the pronoun ‘you’? Would the precise words of philosophy, fashion, books, architecture and history animate a new vision, gestural and oblique? Is the kinetic pronoun cinema?
