FRANTZ FANON (1925-1961)

Algerian political theorist Frantz Fanon analyzed the nature of racism and colonialism and developed a theory of violent anti-colonial struggle. In his first book, Black Skin, White Masks (1952), Fanon examined the social and psychological processes by which the white colonizers alienated the black natives from any indigenous black culture; he showed that blacks were made to feel inferior because of their color and thus strove to emulate white culture and society. Fanon hoped that the old myths of superiority would be abandoned so that a real equality and integration could be achieved. Alienated from the dominant French culture, (except of connection with Sartre and some others), Fanon deeply identified with Algeria's revolutionary struggle for independence. He had secretly aided the rebels from 1954 to 1956, when he resigned from the hospital post to openly work for the Algerian revolutionaries' National Liberation Front (FLN) in Tunis. He worked on the revolutionaries' newspaper, becoming one of the leading ideologists of the revolution, and developed a theory of anti-colonial struggle in the "third world."

Using Marxist, psychoanalytic, and sociological analysis, Fanon summed up his views in The Wretched of the Earth (1961), arguing that only a thorough, truly socialist revolution carried out by the oppressed peasantry (the wretched of the earth) could bring justice to the colonized. He believed that the revolution could only be carried out by violent armed conflict; only revolutionary violence could completely break the psychological and physical shackles of a racist colonialism. Violence would regenerate and unite the population by a "collective catharsis;" out of this violence a new, humane man would arise and create a new culture. Through all this Fanon stressed the need to reject Europe and its culture and accomplish the revolution alone.

The project “Seminar Decolonizing Knowledge and Life through Theory and Art” is conceptualized as a continuation of the theory reading group that was organized in the past summer semester in 2009 in the Post-conceptual Art Practices class by Marina Gržinić and Ivana Marjanović. The theory reading group has proved that there is a growing interest by students for reading theory and discussing it in the format of reading group and thus the idea of organizing a special seminar appeared.

Schedule will be updated every month on m1.antville.org.
Students are invited to join at any point.

First meeting of the Seminar “Plattform Geschichtspolitik” [Platform History Politics]
The seminar is conceived and organized by Eduard Freudmann

Seminar description [ENGLISH]
How are and how were different History Politics conducted at the Academy of Fine Arts?
Until which extent were and are Colonialism, Fascism and National Socialism considered in the Academy? Where do gaps, ruptures, continuities occur? Which role plays dis-remembrance, repression, self-victimization? Which history-political manifestations exist at the Academy – and which do not exist?

These questions mark the start of the course – and thereby the beginning of establishing a continuing “Platform History Politics” at the Academy. They should be related to other questions that are to be developed. The critical examination of history-political processes in comparable institutions should raise the sensibility for a survey of the current state in the direct study and work environment. A preliminary visualization of traced habits and usualness, of oddities and tremendousness as well as of other remarkable [ab-]normalities, should initiate broader discussions about History Politics at the Academy.

“History Politics” is a literal translation of the German term “Geschichtspolitik” and used since there is no generally admitted translation existing. It refers to the fact that the construction of history and its political interpretation are immanent to history as such.

Seminar description [DEUTSCH]
Wie werden und wie wurden Geschichtspolitiken an der Akademie der bildenden Künste betrieben? Inwieweit wird und wurde dabei die Teilhabe an Kolonialismus, Faschismus und Nationalsozialismus eingeschlossen? Wo treten Lücken, wo Bruchlinien, wo Kontinuitäten auf? Welche Rollen spielen Vergessen, Verdrängen, Selbstviktimisierung? Welche geschichtspolitischen Manifestationen gibt es an der Akademie – und welche Manifestationen gibt es nicht?

Diese Fragen markieren den Beginn der Lehrveranstaltung – und damit der Etablierung einer kontinuierlichen „Plattform Geschichtspolitik“ an der Akademie. Sie sollen mit weiteren, zu erarbeitenden Fragen in Verbindung gesetzt werden. Die kritische Betrachtung exemplarischer geschichtspolitischer Prozesse an vergleichbaren Institutionen, soll die Sensibilität zur Bestandsaufnahme des Ist-Zustands im direkten Studien- und Arbeitsumfeld schärfen. Mit einer vorläufigen Sichtbarmachung aufgespürter Gepflogenheiten und Gewöhnlichkeiten, Kuriositäten und Ungeheuerlichkeiten, sowie anderweitig bemerkenswerter [Un-]Auffälligkeiten sollen breitere Diskussionen über Geschichtspolitiken an der Akademie angestoßen werden.

Guest lecture by Ronen Eidelman (IL): Medinat Weimar

Part of the Seminar “Plattform Geschichtspolitik” [Platform History Politics]
Conceived and organized by Eduard Freudmann

Medinat Weimar is an art project that created a movement to promote the idea of the Jewish state in Thuringia, Germany, with the city of Weimar as its capital. The movements goal is to convince the German people to call the Jews (and anyone else who wants to be one) to gather in Thuringia, a post-industrial area emptying more every year, and found there another Jewish state. One that would not only satisfy the need for a secure Jewish home, appease the Palestinian Israeli conflict, help the German with coming to terms with the past, but would also save Thuringia from its own bleak future. In the lecture Eidelman, the Movements' secretary, will present the Movement, explain the political and artistic context it was born in, as well as show other art projects he has created in the past that are related to the movement.

The lecture will be in English.
