The United Nations: On the Performative Institution

First broadcast: Mon 02.11.2009, 11.00 Uhr MEZ

The second part of the broadcast on the Start Up Lectures in the frame of the International Fellowship Program of Art and Theory at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen has the focus on new forms of institutional critique.

Inga Zimprich is dealing with the institution of the United Nations, its space of speech, and the resulting performative power of the “ceaselessly active diplomatic entity.” Zimprich aims to unhinge the terminology from the institution and to appropriate it, to process it anew, and thereby to put it to another, different performative use.
