Wiederholung: Mi 17.08.2016, 21.00 Uhr MEZ
Eine Sendung in Zusammenarbeit mit: Marina Vishmidt, kuda.org, Group for Conceptual Politics

Mitschnitt (Teil 2 von 2) der gleichnamigen Diskussion, die am 17. Juni 2016 im Rahmen der Büchsenhausen-Ausstellung Störwerte / Nuisance Value im Kunstpavillon der Tiroler Künstlerschaft stattfand.

Die Büchsenhausen-Fellows Anthony Iles und Marina Vishmidt luden kuda.org / Group for Conceptual Politics aus Novi Sad, Serbien zu einer Diskussion ein, in der es um Fragen der politischen und künstlerischen Form in ihren gegenseitigen Spannungen und Annäherungen ging. Welche Methoden ermöglichen uns, in diesem Spannungsfeld aktiv zu werden, ohne dabei aber vorhandene Konzepte zu reifizieren, und das Spekulative im Zentrum unserer Untersuchungen beizubehalten? Was würde es bedeuten, uns selbst als „Subjekte, die zu Technologie erstarrt sind“ (Theodor W. Adorno) zu verstehen, oder als geschichtlich hergestellte Objekte, die „durch die Schaffung von Beziehungen kulturell miteinander verbunden sind“ (Howard Slater)?

kuda.org is an independent cultural organization based in Novi Sad (Serbia), which since 2001 brings together artists, theoreticians, media activists, researchers and the wider public in the research of contemporary art theory and practice, cultural policies, activism and politics. kuda.org tends to make an intervention in the sphere of research and artistic and social experimentation within the field of art and cultural production, from the position of institutional critique and critique of cultural policies.

Group for Conceptual Politics (Grupa za konceptualnu politiku) is an artistic and political organization which is the result of local conflicts and clashes by which people in this struggle are fleeing while avoiding antagonism as a model of articulation of their own practice and thought. It seeks to construct a space which it ironically designates an ‘institutional commune’. It comprehends that work needs to be published in order to be created (written, read or translated). The Group’s work is therefore the political project of the deconstruction of cultural policy and state education.
