NYU’s Department of Cinema Studies and Undergraduate Film & Television present the 8th Annual Experimental Lecture

Bradley Eros

 “Disappearing soon at a theater near you
(ephemeral cinema & other acts of life)"

In many ways an animating spirit and catalyzing agent of the NYC underground film scene from the 1980s to the present, Bradley Eros' radical, sumptuous expanded cinema works stand at the forefront of a movement to redefine our understanding of film as an art form. For his Experimental Lecture, Eros will “attempt to dismantle a few beliefs, by prying history loose, not nailing it down." His lecture will take the form of a series of questions, interrupted by quotations, collaborations, expanded and contracted cinema, jokes & aphorisms, music, poetry, and surprise. Eros will talk on the nature of process, the immaterial, unfixed forms, hybrid works, resistance, desire & its discontents.

Eros works in myriad media, in addition to film, including video, collage, photography, performance, sound, text, and installation.  His conceptual framework includes: ephemeral cinema, mediamystics, subterranean science, erotic psyche, cinema povera, poetic accidents and musique plastique.   Recent works & obsessions include:  Black Hole Cinema (‘zine & lecture), eau de cinema (perfume & exhibit), Narcolepsy Cinema (text & installation) & Optipus (expanded cinema performance laboratory.)
