Ontology and Appearing: Documentary Realism as a Mathematical Thought
Keywords:Badiou, Ontology, Documentary
AbstractThis paper exposes the relation between the different mathematical orientations, on the one hand, and the modes of documentary film on the other. When we take, with Badiou, mathematics as ontology, and mathematical orientations as orientations to Being, we find in the structural similarity of mathematics and documentary an equivalence: between modes of documentaryand mathematical-ontological decisions, regarding the inscription of 'what is'. From here we move to consider Badiou's notion of 'in-appearing' through a reading of Alain Resnais' documentary Night and Fog.
