Public Lecture
Utrecht University, 

March 23, 2016 

Robert Stam 

University Professor of Cinema Studies
(New York University, Tisch School of the Arts) 


Keywords in Subversive Film/Media Aesthetics




Robert Stam will present from his new book Keywords. Keywords offers a conversational journey through the overlying terrains of politically engaged art and artistically engaged politics, combining a major statement on subversive aesthetics, a survey of radical film strategies, and a lexicon of over a thousand terms and concepts. 
No other book combines an ambitious essay on radical politics and aesthetics in film with a lexicon of terms and ideas, many of which are new and innovative.
