the rare event



'The Rare Event' is a 46-minute 16mm film made in collaboration with Ben Rivers and Ben Russell. It documents a series of dense theoretical conversations between such luminaries as Jean-Luc Nancy, Étienne Balibar and Hans Ulrich Obrist. It was born out of a three-day symposium whose theme, ‘Resistance’, was inspired by the title of a planned but never staged exhibition by the late philosopher Jean-François Lyotard.

This film premiered in 2018 at Berlinale.
