Renowned philosopher and moving-image maker Manuel DeLanda makes a rare public appearance with selected films, videos, and a lecture, “Cinema as an Emergent Phenomenon.” After relocating from Mexico to New York City in the 1970s, DeLanda created a body of radical films that were visceral and that had profound theoretical underpinnings. Unique for being lauded by punk, experimental, and academic communities, DeLanda’s work defied definition, taking seemingly familiar genres into outlandish and unexpected territories. DeLanda is now an internationally respected philosopher, author, and teacher who has also created a stream of astonishingly original and kinetic videos. Regardless of medium, DeLanda is a great contemporary provocateur who brings a sense of danger, excitement, and renewal to each experience.
