In this joint session, we will inquire into the various ways cinema figures the end of the world (be it through global nuclear annihilation in American cinema of the 1950s or through climate anxiety in contemporary [post]apocalyptic fictions), wagering that questioning the bewildering effects of apocalyptic pictures through the singular lens of the aesthetics of cinema allows for a more nuanced and (re)generative account of what pictures can do and which affects they can produce. We will focus both on the transhistorical character of the end of the world in cinematographic iconology and on the aesthetical questions it raises about the very essence of the medium, eventually arguing for a typology of images according to their abilities to knit together or else destroy worlds.
