Ultra-red | Art, Collectivity, and Pedagogy: Changing the World in which we Live

Ultra-red | Art, Collectivity, and Pedagogy: Changing the World in which we Live, Chto delat?:

The art world is going through a period of intense fascination with collectives. This is often combined with an enthusiastic interest in pedagogy. Curators, critics and institutions champion collectivity and pedagogy as, among other things, an alternative or corrective, if you will, to the art-star economy of the 1990s and its spectacular demise. These recent interests have benefited from the enormous influence of the French philosopher, Jacques Ranciиre. Seeking an explicitly political inflection in the terms of pedagogy and collectivity, many have turned to Ranciиre’s writings on spectatorship and the emancipatory potential in art. This appropriation in the visual art context has tended to ignore the extent to which Ranciиre’s own thinking occurs within a nexus of pedagogy and the collectivities that occur in performance.

Raising Dust: Encounters in Relational Geography [uk London]

[Image: Navroze Contractor, “Street sweeper in Jodhpur,” 2009. Photograph, dimensions variable] Raising Dust: Encounters in Relational Geography :: December 8, 2010 – February 20, 2011 :: Calvert 22, 22 Calvert Avenue, London E2 7JP.

Curated by Richard Appignanesi, writer, theorist and editor Raising Dust is a provocative multimedia exhibition which explores contemporary notions of identity and relativity by inviting a group of predominantly Eastern European artists to respond to the poetry and politics of place.

Arguably, the very idea of Europe is in itself a dislocation, a ‘nomadic horizon’ which responds differently to the shifting perspectives and desires of its inhabitants. Each artist in Raising Dust has contributed work which addresses this proposition and foregrounds the urgency of creating an autonomous ‘space for life’ that overrides dominant mainstream distinctions.

Contractions of Time: On Social Practice from a Temporal Perspective

Contractions of Time: On Social Practice from a Temporal Perspective by Nato Thompson, e-flux journal #20: Rather than make normative claims regarding the display or function of these works, my intention is to clarify the emerging cultural landscape across which these aesthetic experiments function. The reenactment of these performance artworks of the past allowed the work to fit neatly into the current aesthetic needs of a public deprived of its own bodies, wherein any renewed interest in performance has to be reframed and displayed in a manner that accounts for the dematerialized and accelerated climate of today.

“[…] When Marina Abramović sat for hours at a time in the central gallery of MoMA, bright lights beaming down on her as she met visitor after visitor with her steady gaze, what shook the audience was her commitment. Continue reading

Catalytic: Communities/Networks/Participation

Catalytic: Communities/ Networks/Participation :: Call for Relational Work — Deadline: October 11/18, 2010.

We are interested in what is going on in art right now. As entertainment, critical resistance, or one more commodity fetish, art can provide an outlet for those of us who dream of revolutions and utopias. We want to track the diverse ways in which art is currently being produced with catalysis in mind.

We are looking for projects, proposals, propositions, participatory actions, performances, behaviors, street acts, acting out art, art acting out, politicized situations, situations that involve politics, and anything else considered or not considered under the heading of art. Continue reading
