Camille Bourgeus is preparing a Ph.D. research on the cinema of Chinese filmmaker and visual artist Wang Bing. The question raised by Wang’s work is whether the established paradigm in modern art theory that sees the real as always already mediated, has been overtaken by a new realist turn. With her research, Camille hopes to clarify what she holds to be the contemporary fascination with factuality and ‘realness,’ and elucidate its relevance to the development of contemporary art cinema, by returning to the concept of totality as elaborated by first (Lukács, Bloch), second (Lefebvre, Sartre) and most recent generation Marxists (primarily Jameson).
