  3. Communism will be the collective management of alienation*

    with Nadia Bou Ali, Ray Brassier, Dimitra Kotouza, Mattin, and Paul B. Preciado.

    The Parliament of Bodies: Communism will be the collective management of alienation* with Nadia Bou Ali, Ray Brassier, Dimitra Kotouza, Mattin, and Paul B. Preciado SEP 5 Workshop 8–11:30 pm Fridericianum, Friedrichsplatz 18, Kassel Live stream available Add to iCal or Google Calendar Previous revolutionary theories thought that it was possible to live in unalienated conditions. However, the question of mediation and how we understand ourselves is being radically challenged today: technology accelerates certain forms of socialization but also shapes our interactions and the way we think; neuroscience challenges the notion of selfhood and computers know more about ourselves than we do. The concept of alienation is back, this time without its connotations of authenticity. What does it mean to be a subject in conditions of real subsumption when our most intimate details are being commodified (from our DNA to our choices and social relations on the internet)? Where is our room for agency? These questions are preliminary requisites in order to answer how we might develop a common idea of what emancipation means. Alienation is a helpful concept because it forces us to ask what is being alienated, what is producing aliena…

  4. Acid Communism - Consciousness Raising w/ classtraitor (Threads*BROOKLYN) - 01-Aug-19

    Consciousness Raising w/ classtraitor’s hallucinogenic reading of Mark Fisher’s Acid Communism (Repeater Books, 2018.

    Exploring the intersection of music and politics.

    During the civil rights movement, socialist feminists formed ‘consciousness-raising groups’, in which people would relate their personal feeling to larger structures and realise that the common problems they faced weren’t their fault. This idea of raised, or ‘higher’ consciousness also has roots in Buddhist and Hindu teachings of the individual self as an illusion.

  5. Remembering Agnes Heller - The Philosopher’s Zone - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Hungarian philosopher Agnes Heller was a Holocaust survivor, a dissident under Hungary’s communist regime, and one of the great modern political thinkers. She was also a wonderfully engaging speaker, and this week we hear her in conversation from 2013, as well as the reflections of a close friend and colleague.

  6. Sprechsaal Interviews, Joseph Vogl - 1.06.2015

    Lars Dreiucker invites — enablers, authors and teachers; millers, drinkers and fishermen; theatre folk and the hoi polloi; couch potatoes and cosmopolitans, critics who push buttons, the human catalysts for energy and secretions; artisans and the incurably arty-farty. Centrifugal to the interviews will be matters relating to the question of how these conflicting worlds confluence in one globalized cultural mash-up. Whereas popular interviews seek to discover only the person itself, a modern technician cannot settle for such limitations. The Sprechsaal Interviews will reveal the structures in which our contemporaries live and work. An individual’s commitments and their specific background are, for the most part, difficult to map. But who are the powerful currents flowing through the tributaries of our diverse social spaces? And at which point does deliberate agency acquiesce to the confusing indeterminism of our social matrix? A dialogical photograph can represent a mainstream slice of any society. Your greengrocer can pick out the constraints fettering an entire generation just as accurately as the playwright. The Sprechsaal interviews will investigate the limits to which we can collectively push our own individual boundaries.

  8. Armen Avanessian & Enemies #35: NO MORE DICK SOUP

    For decades, people of colour, womxn and other marginalized communities have drawn attention to the violent disparities that continue to persist in cultural institutions. How is it possible, then, that museums, galleries, symposia and other cultural initiatives continue to place such a disproportionate focus on the cultural practice and achievements of white men? The art community, in particular, likes to prides itself on protecting freedom of expression above all other principles. But whose freedom of expression does it celebrate and amplify, exactly? And at what cost to those whose voices are marginalised as a consequence? Can we really grasp and narrate the complex world in which we live, when voices of privilege continue to resonate so dominantly and so disproportionately, effectively sidelining the voices of so-called ‘others’? Are universalist defences of freedom of expression merely an alibi, serving to distract from the urgent and necessary work of transformation that lies ahead, if institutions wish to commit to dismantling existing infrastructural hierarchies and broadening their programming? The aim of this panel is to discuss various possibilities via which to move beyond commonly-used consciousness-raising strategies (as exemplified, for example, in the practice of the Guerrilla Gir…

  9. Armen Avanessian - Postcontemporary Angst and Fear

    SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL - THE NOISE OF BEING Armen Avanessian - Postcontemporary Angst and Fear 25 February 2017 - De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam, The Netherlands —- Postcontemporary Angst and Fear The 21st century marks a new dimension of time itself. That the direction of time has changed is indicated by the prominence of various phenomena of preemption such as preemptive strikes, preemptive personalities, and preemptive policing. The media are increasingly occupied not with what happened or what is happening, but what could happen (premediation). This is a helpless symptom characterised by a general loss of a real, open future and present: we have lost the future as a political object. Avanessian argues that the systematic production of fear within neoliberal politics is symptomatic of the failure to grasp the speculative temporality arriving from the future. Instead of addressing our angst facing this new post-contemporary time-complex we stick to the increasingly regressive invention of feared objects.

    Armen Avanessian studied philosophy and political science in Vienna and Paris. After completing his dissertation in literature, he worked at the Free University Berlin from 2007-2014. He has previously been a Visiting Fellow in the German Department at Columbia University and in the German Departme…
