During Tangent_Fear, Del Favero's video piece Pentimento will be shown, and he will discuss the aesthetics of trauma through Nachtraglichkeit a work in which he introduces the work of Pierre Janet, the contemporary of Freud who coined the classic formulation of trauma. As opposed to the normal course of events, personal experiences are processed by the brain to enable them to be recognized as memory. Trauma, however, resists such processing, rendering the familiar unrecognizable.
