“The pleasure of the text, it is that moment when my body follows its own ideas – for my body does not have the same ideas I do.” (Roland Barthes)

 

Three discursive moments, intertwining and evolving to an open discussion

 

 

GERHARD NEUMANN: Eroticism and knowledge – Writing scenes in Roland Barthes

The micro-lecture concentrates on the eroticism delivered by the knowledge generated between body and script – as ‘life text’ (Barthes). It is Eros that drives us, that makes us acquainted with the world and with ourselves, the biggest mystery. It is the pleasure of ‘knowing’ in the double meaning of Eros and philosophy.


ANNE JUREN: The point of pleasure

The lecture enters the limbic system of the (reclining) audience, which navigates between concrete physical sensations and the pleasure of the text: An attempt to find poetry within the analytical terminology and theory within the pleasurable sensation – at the moment when the intellect leaves the mind, the skeleton the body, the sensation its cultural references.



GABRIELE BRANDSTETTER: The certain body. Suspensions of pleasure

The heart of this discursive moment is formed by the sensual qualities of the pleasure of the text as body pleasure: Those passages Barthes mentions – the sticky reading of voluptuousness; the losing-oneself in interstices; the cohabitations of language and movement; and the smacking between voice and text.
