  1. The Politics of Mental Health

    At the intersection of the personal and the political, we explore the relationship between mental health and economics, politics, and society at large. Is it even possible to distinguish between mental illness that derives from an individual’s physiology or childhood experience and that which has broader social or political causes? Why do particular mental illnesses appear to characterize certain eras? Could social change limit the spread of mental illness in contemporary society?

  2. How Are We Now? | Will Davies | #CIMStreams

    “What’s on your mind?” This is the question to which every Facebook status update now responds. Millions of users sharing their thoughts in one giant performance of what Clay Shirky once called “cognitive surplus”. Contemporary media platforms aren’t simply a stage for this cognitive performance. They are more like directors, staging scenes, tweaking scripts, working to get the best or fully “optimized” performance. As Katherine Hayles has pointed out, media theory has long taken for granted that we think “through, with and alongside media”. Pen and paper, the abacus, and modern calculators are obvious cases in point, but the list quickly expands and with it longstanding conceptions of the Cartesian mind dissolve away. Within the cognitive sciences, cognition is now routinely described as embodied, extended, and distributed. They too recognize that cognition takes place beyond the brain, in between people, between people and things, and combinations thereof. The varieties of specifically human thought, from decision-making to reasoning and interpretation, are now considered one part of a broader cognitive spectrum shared with other animals, systems, and intelligent devices.

    Today, the technology we mostly think through, with and alongside are computers. We routinely rely on int…

  4. DISCUSSION | Alenka Zupančič: Objective Humour; Robert Pfaller: The Laughing, the Loving, and the Low Thing; chair: Gregor Moder

    Concept/s: Hegel’s Aesthetics

    11 to 14 January 2018

    Museum of Modern Art, MG+, Cankarjeva 15, Ljubljana

     

    Hosted by: Aufhebung – International Hegelian Association

    Partners: MG+MSUM and University of Ljubljana

    Invitation and programme [PDF]

     

    Organizing committee: Mirt Komel, Bara Kolenc, Martin Hergouth, Ana Jovanović, Goran Vranešević

     

    Advisory board: Mladen Dolar (University of Ljubljana), Andrew Cole (Princeton University), Robert Pfaller (University of Art and Design Linz), Gregor Moder (Aufhebung), Sami Khatib (American University of Beirut), Zdenka Badovinac (MG+MSUM), Simon Kardum (Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture), Mara Ambrožič (John Moores University of Liverpool)

     

    The Concept/s conference is conceptually affiliated with the symposium What’s in a name? organised by Maska, Institute for Publishing, Artistic Production and Education, an accompanying event for the exhibition Janez Janša (curated by Domenico Quaranta and co-produced by MG+MSUM and Aksioma – Institute for Contemporary Art), to be held the 10 January 2018 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova.

     

     

    Hegel’s lectures on Aesthetics–perhaps the least explored work by the author of the Phenomenology of Spirit–is part of the vivid German tradition stretching from Lessing, Kant, Schiller, Goethe, to Nietzsche, Heidegger, Adorno, and others. Hegel’s philosophy of art encompasses a wide range of topics, from ancient architecture to modern theatre, from religious paintings to secular literature. However, the most interesting interventions by Hegel are not only those that were influenced or that themselves influenced the distinctive philosophical discipline of aesthetics, but also those that provided us with a very precise conceptual apparatus for our own contemporary debates on art. One prominent example is Hegel’s thesis that art became more and more philosophical in the course of its history according to the logical development of the idea(l) of beauty; a thesis that was the springboard for speculations about the end of art and that anticipated different debates regarding the status of conceptual artworks. All these themes are significant not only for contemporary art theories, but can, even more importantly, redefine the status of philosophy as such.

  6. ‘Dramaturgy of the Dialectic’ by Rebecca Comay | Concept/s: Hegel’s Aesthetics

    Concept/s: Hegel’s Aesthetics Conference Ljubljana 11-14 January 2018 Hosted by Aufhebung International Hegelian Association

    Rebecca Comay Dramaturgy of the Dialectic

    Abstract:

    The temptation is to pit the Aesthetics against the Phenomenology: the one provides a museum or mausoleum of dead artworks, the other presents an open-ended artistic experiment. The one examines art from Olympian heights of absolute knowing, the other mobilizes and transforms art from (almost) within: philosophy of art vs the art of philosophy—mention vs use, constative vs performative, Hegel’s Aesthetics vs Hegel’s aesthetics. This opposition in turn recalls the contrast between Aristotle’s Poetics and Plato’s dialogues: the former provides an anatomy of tragic poetry, the latter disarms tragedy by sublimating and absorbing its resources for philosophy. Things aren’t so simple, of course, but I’d like to understand why. I’ll be exploring the theatrical elements of Hegel’s Phenomenology. How does Hegel’s dramaturgical practice relate to this ambivalent praise of drama, at the end of the Aesthetics, as the “highest” - which means also the most self-overcoming or self-relativizing — of all the arts?
