(p.107) Chapter 5 An Instant or an Eternity: Thinking Cinema After Deleuze
Badiou and Cinema

Alex Ling

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter investigates the relation of Alain Badiou's philosophy of cinema to that of Gilles Deleuze, reconsidering how space and time operate in cinema, whereby cinema figures as an art whose foremost concerns lie with disappearance and re-temporalisation. It highlights Badiou's recognition of the problem that the visual arts present to philosophy and discusses Deleuze's opinion that cinema-ideas are irreducible to any communication, where communication is understood as the transmission and propagation of information.

Keywords:   Alain Badiou, philosophy of cinema, Gilles Deleuze, space and time, re-temporalisation, visual arts, cinema-ideas
