Hunter vs Hunted
This event is part of 2011's Walls and Bridges: Transatlantic Insights, Season 1.
The fugitive slave, the 17th century European peasant turned prey, the tracked native American, the stateless Jew, the colonial witch, all examples from a violent history of manhunting in the western world to be considered in this presentation which will thread together video clips, short films, B-movie fragments, compelling lecture and lively debate.
The French philosopher Grégoire Chamayou will introduce the dialectic of the hunter and the hunted, a theory he proposes in his new book, Chasses à l'homme ("Manhunts"). Media selections chosen by Chamayou, Jamie Hook, and Katie Salen will serve as both evidence and interruption in pursuit of understanding of this powerful philosophical thesis.
