K-WAVE AND BODY MEMORY – WHAT NATIONS CAN LEARN FROM POP CULTURE
Conversation with Sulgi Lie and Anna-Catharina Gebbers
K-Pop and K-Drama are conquering the world to an extent that would have been inconceivable a few years ago. But how do images and sounds shape our physical experience of a nation or community? What does it mean for our perceptions when body memory is moulded by pop culture? How do sounds and voices affect the visual perception of a film? Are sounds capable of creating a new political ecology of perception? Film scholar Sulgi Lie discusses questions like these with curator Anna-Catharina Gebbers, using selected works from the Nation, Narration, Narcosis exhibition by way of illustration.
Sulgi Lie is a fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. He is the author of Towards a Political Aesthetics of Cinema: The Outside of Film (2020) and Gehend kommen. Adornos Slapstick: Charlie Chaplin und die Marx Brothers (2022).
