This essay was commissioned by Picture This, Bristol as part of a writing residency undertaken in summer 2010. The essay was selected for inclusion by editor Bridget Crone for 'The Sensible Stage: Staging and the Moving Image', a collection of newly commissioned texts that explore the moving image in relation to performance, time and the event. The essay explores the work of Brissels-based artist Jimmy Robert, and in particular his 2005 film 'L'Education Sentimentale'. The issues of appropriation and touch are discussed in relation to critical positions set out by Craig Owens, Jan Verwoert, Roland Barthes and Jacques Derrida. It is the first substantial scholarly text written on Robert's work, which has been exhibited internationally, including recent exhibitions at Jeu de Paume, Paris, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. <p/>The book was launched at the Institute for Contemporary Arts, London, as part of the Biennial of Moving Images organised with LUX artist's film agency.
