How does democracy relate to cinema in a moment of the supposed crisis of democracy?
 
With a focus on three case studies of relatively new players in the global cultural economy, all of which combine the emergence of a popular cinema with the consolidation of liberal democracy – India, Nigeria and South Korea –, this conference explores how cinema, and particularly popular cinema, configures the demos in modern democracies by articulating and dramatizing the conflicts and crises of democratic polities, while developing a significant appeal beyond the geographical and political boundaries of these polities.

The Conference is open to all interested parties – No registration or conference fee.

Date: June 20-22, 2019
Venue: Aula der Städelschule, Dürerstraße 10, 60596 Frankfurt am Main
