Practices of the Essential In-Between

75% PhD seminar STEALTH.unlimited (Ana Džokić + Marc Neelen)

When: Monday, 15 June 2015,14.00 – 18.00
Where: City in the Making, Pieter de Raadtstraat 35, 3033 VC Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Practices of the Essential In-Between is an explorative journey with a transformative consequence for STEALTH.unlimited’s practice. The seminar on June 15, part of the PhD trajectory at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm (KKH), will take place in Rotterdam, at the very site of one of STEALTH’s ongoing projects, co-initiated within the association City in the Making. Moving between the floors of a set of buildings recently rescued from a destiny of long-term hibernation, the seminar will reflect on this particular endeavour from the perspective of the mind- boggling issue of how and on which premises to common the city, in the context of the unravelling welfare state and re-emergent struggles forurban existence.
The seminar brings contributions by Martijn Jeroen van der Linden (researcher and PhD candidate at TU Delft /Economics of Innovation and Technology), since 2009 involved in new economic thinking, his PhD thesis focuses on the purposes of money and capital, and aims to propose a new design for the monetary system, Aetzel Griffioen (political philosopher, co-ordinator of Skillcity Rotterdam), who researches new forms of collective prosperity and works on socioecologic education in neighbourhoods of Rotterdam-South, and City in the Making community – Erik Jutten, Guido Marsille, Piet Vollaard. Throughout the seminar Ana and Marc will enter a conversation with Saskia van Stein (curator, director Bureau Europa Maastricht) that will zoom-out on the larger framework of STEALTH’s work, particularly in the last couple of years.

The Royal Institute of Art continues The Domain of the Great Bear

Water & the City

A Lecture by Kunlé Adeyemi/founder of NLÉ based in Amsterdam and Lagos

Where: Royal Institute of Art
When: Tuesday, 24 March, 2015 at 16.00

NLÉ aims to critically examine two of the most significant challenges of our time: rapid urbanization and climate change, in the continent with some of the world’s greatest opportunities, Africa. The impact of rapid urbanization and economic growth of African cities is now common knowledge, yet it cannot be overemphasized. At the same time the impact of climate change through water has now become day-to-day reality, with sea level rise, increasing rainfall and frequent flooding. The relationships of ‘water and the city’ on the African continent, have therefore become critical points of intersection for understanding the future of development in Africa.

The Royal Institute of Art/Kungl. Konsthögskolan in Stockholm announces:

The International Visiting Chair in Philosophy in the Context of Art

Professor Peter Osborne & Professor Catherine Malabou

About The International Visiting Chair

Professors Peter Osborne and Catherine Malabou will share the position. It is designed to encompass a range of annual projects based on the reflexive relocation of ongoing research in modern European philosophy into the context of postgraduate education at the Royal Institute of Art. The programme will involve research taking the form of, for example, an investigation of the current state of one or two concepts central to philosophical research that have a distinct but as yet unexplored relevance to art practices and discourses more generally. These concepts may be philosophical versions of concepts that have historically been a part of art discourse – such as form, image, and the interesting (Osborne) – or they may be concepts derived from the history of philosophy or current scientific practices, such as inscription and plasticity (Malabou). In each case, the research will intervene directly in the current philosophical debates about the concepts at stake and will reflect on the experience of presenting this research within the context of art education.

Forensis: Architecture at the Threshold of Detectibility
A Lecture by Eyal Weizman, Professor of Spatial & Visual Cultures, and Director of the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London

In his lecture, Eyal Weizman will also present work undertaken with the Forensic Architecture teams in relation to urban and architectural destruction in Israel/Palestine, environmental violence in Guatemala and their research for the UN on drone warfare in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia. Forensic Architecture, an agency composed of artists, filmmakers and architectural researchers, uses architecture as sensor and an agent that can detect political force-fields and respond to them. Weizman will show how architectural methods and new sensing technologies could be used to expose the logic of violent conflict while raising a host of conceptual problems to do with the thresholds of vision and law.

The Royal Institute of Art launches The Domain of the Great Bear
with: “Information, Image, Story: Some Conceptual Aspects of Contemporary Art”
A Lecture by Peter Osborne, Director of the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), Kingston University, London

As the didactic titles of three canonical New York exhibitions indicate (The Machine at the End of the Mechanical Age curated by Pontus Hulten (1968) and ‘Information’ curated by Kynaston Mc Shine (1970) both at MoMA, and ‘Software: Information Technology – Its New Meaning for Art’ (1970) curated by Jack Burnham at the Jewish Museum) analyses of the social significance of conceptual art have tended to rely upon technologically based narratives about the changing communicational forms of modernity. Walter’s Benjamin’s 1936 account of the ‘destruction of tradition’ and the replacement of ‘the story’ by ‘information’ has provided a model here. On the one hand, the uses of digital imaging in contemporary art appear to confirm and extend such technological narratives of conceptual content (misrecognized as ‘dematerialization’ and ‘immaterial labour’), yet, on the other, they complicate them by virtue of the pervasiveness of the image.

Practices of the Essential In-Between

50% PhD seminar by STEALTH.unlimited (Ana Džokić + Marc Neelen)

Practices of the Essential In-Between is an explorative journey with a transformative consequence for STEALTH.unlimited’s practice. The event on May 16 explores the changing landscape in which spatial practices have been opereating since the start of the global crisis in 2008.

Triggered by three ongoing projects, STEALTH.unlimited will open up the discussion on the creation of existential spaces of sharing or resilience, of doing good, while tackling uneasiness towards emerging career paths modelled upon comparable spatial practices (until recently labeled alternative or experimental).

With contributions by Henrietta Palmer (Mejan Arc, KKH, Stockholm), Doina Petrescu (Atelier d’architecture autogérée, Paris and Sheffield School of Architecture) and Tor Lindstrand (KTH School of Architecture and Economy, Stockholm).
