blown up !
an eventwork by Silvia Maglioni & Graeme Thomson

blown up ! is an eventwork, mapping an investigation at once philosophical, cinematic and relational. In a manner similar to Antonioni’s film Blow-Up which follows a photographer’s quest to locate a body in a London park from a blow-up of a snapshot he has taken, Silvia Maglioni & Graeme Thomson explored 1970s video footage of Gilles Deleuze’s courses at the University of Vincennes to locate participants in the seminar who then became collaborators in their film, Facs of Life. But blown up ! equally derives from an explosion, recomposing scattered shards of a political moment, a research process, a corpus of images, voices and concepts, within the framework of a temporary autonomous classroom that exhorts us to “make rhizomes, not roots, never plant ! Don’t sow grow offshoots ! Don’t be one or multiple, be multiplicities. Run lines, never plot a point !”
