Pietro Bianchi’s research sits at the crossroad of three different disciplines and theoretical traditions: Marxism, Lacanian Psychoanalysis and the study of cinema as an ideological formation. His first monograph is titled Jacques Lacan and Cinema. Imaginary, Gaze, Formalisation (Routledge, 2017) and is an overview of the Lacanian theorization of the visual field. He wrote articles on Psychoanalytic Theory, Critical Theory, Aesthetics, Film History and Theatre Studies. He also collaborates as a film critic to several Film Studies journals and media outlets.
His current book project tentatively titled “Eisenstein Occupies Wall Street” is a reflection on the contemporary modes of appearance of the capitalist economy and on the different strategies of its visual representation.
