Agamben: Filming Life, Profaning the Image
Benjamin Noys

Although Giorgio Agamben has devoted no major work to the concept of image it forms a minor (in the sense given by Deleuze and Guattari) current in his work: a line of flight which flees the image as an operation to capture the imagelessness of the image. Agambenís profanation of the image aims to release its encrypted potential in a secular eschatology which disrupts and refigures the forms-of-life so as to give us a previously unseen film of life. This article critically reflects on Agambenís attempts to freeze and release a new potency of the image.
