Schizoproduction and Artistic Research

Tero Nauha

In my artistic research for my PhD at the Theatre Academy in the University of Arts, Helsinki, I have used the metamodel of schizoanalysis both in creating artistic works and in pedagogical contexts.

Hollywood Flatlands: Taking a Line for a Walk

Verina Gfader, Mikhail Karikis

Sergei Eisenstein’s conceptual contribution to an infinitely elastic cartoon line—he was working on an unfinished book on Walt Disney at that time—is centred on the capacity of stroke drawing to assume any form whatever in a continuous amoeba-like contour: an ability he describes as “plasmaticness,” behaving like the primal protoplasm.
