On the Anarchic Organization of Cinematic Spaces – Evoking Spaces beyond Cinema
This publication engages with a futuristic progressive vision on the condition of cinema. By questioning and analyzing cinema’s past and present industry with respect to various forms of staging from the perspective of artistic practice and research, a new space beyond is formulated. The author takes on a journey to reveal an imaginary—astronomical—political trope on and through what can be called the cinema of the present.

Employing the concept of an anarchic organization of cinematic spaces, the author embarks in this volume on a journey toward an imaginary political trope for the cinema of the present – a working principle that aims to form a new way of thinking by destabilizing outdated structures of cinema.
