Benjamin Léon

Benjamin Léon is a Ph.D in Film and Visual Studies (University of Sorbonne Nouvelle – Paris 3) and a Teaching Assistant (University Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée). He concludes a dissertation (dir. Philippe Dubois) on frame’s plasticities from Andy Warhol’s work and American experimental cinema. It’s a reflection between different mediums: painting, photography and cinema with frame (device) in image space (perception) as the main topic. He contributes to various issues (Vertigo, Cinema & Cie, Aniki, Artforum) and he’s now a member of the editorial staff “La Furia Umana”. He wrote some articles about experimental cinema and more precisely on Andy Warhol, Stan Brakhage, Jonas Mekas, Paul Sharits, and Peter Hutton.
