Invisible Fluidly Narration(s) of Marginography. Time Based Representation of Micro narrativity within the Hyper-politicized Time, Place, and Body

My PhD project will, by collaborative and collective approaches, map filmic experience and a form narrativity shaped within what I have chosen to call a hyper-politicized time, place and body. I position my research between the notion of micro and macro, individuality and public according to the multipilicity of one individual identity within extreme, politicized and marginalized environments. It tries to explore the notion of political subjectivity within the micro-narrativity in filmic experience and thereby questioning the relational aspect between reality and truth, fact and fiction, visual and image.

I will investigate how visual, filmic tropes, not just create narratives within these hyper-politicized spaces but also subjects, how the representation of what is made to be outside and outsider within the multicultural society is at the same time the representation of what could be called to be inside and insider. Therefore I will question ethics and political content in artistic representation and presentation in film, and not least, their possibility of establishing structures for social co-existence fundamental to the area of research.
