The Closed Circuit as a film performative

Posted on:

This article shows film as a performing “object”, which induces controversies, establishes new fields of conflicts and discloses knowledge of interpretive communities. For this reason I use theory of posthu­manism, what is a part of performative turn in the humanities. The main part of this article is an analy­sis of The Closed Circuit’s reception. It is an example of how film influences on viewers, establishes inter­pretative communities and becomes an active agent.

Keywords: performance theory, posthumanism, analysis of reception, interpretive community, The Closed Circuit
