PCAP December 2019

December 2, 2019, Monday At 9.40 to 12.30 Taking part in the rehearsal, DIE HAMLETMASCHINE (THE HAMLET MACHINE), directed by Oliver Frljić, as listeners and viewers.

Where: Burgtheater Universitätsring 2, 1010 Wien



Just two years after the Reunification, at the age of 16, Oliver Frljić fled the war that was raging in his home country of Bosnia and settled down in Croatia. Later, he studied philosophy and theatre direction in Zagreb and was invited to bring his highly political way of directing to many important European festivals, among them the Wiener Festwochen. Like Hamlet or Müller he is also an intellectual and artist on the brink between different eras, but centuries or generations apart from them.

Organization of the project Mika Maruyama.

07 lecture Politics of Emotions /Affect in Contemporaneous Visual Culture The lecture will consider the role of emotion and affect and also the shift in theoretical and visual study. Emotions are closely related to process of globalization in digital humanities. The question to be posed are: How emotions, sensory and sensible life become the crucial target of control and power in contemporaneous world that is fully embraced with new media, that performed the fear, aggression, hyper- anxiety, precarity and also de-re-territorialisation of visual culture. How political and affective capacities are appropriated/privatized in neoliberal capitalism? We will also question emotions as crucial bases of artistic and political representation/life have become the toll of creation as well as oppression? In this context, inquiry into production of visual becomes fundamental, rather than trivial, where everything is about representation and where emotions are play the role of new telos of control- what Jean Baudrillard calls “interactive loneliness” in cyberspace. This leads to an instructive paradox where emotions and affect incisively influences the relationship between visual, artistic production and political condition of system of representation.

Yara Mekawei, Egypt Agnieszka Kozłowska, Poland Organized by Marina Grzinic, Studio for Conceptual Art (Post-conceptual Art Practices) at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. The presentation is possible thanks to the Artists-in-Residence program of the Austrian Federal Chancellery and KulturKontakt Austria.

Yara Mekawei Title: Wish you were ear

Yara Mekawei is interested in the philosophy of architecture, history, and literature. Her work is based on sound as a tool of vision; the philosophy of composition is shaped by sophisticated practices that convey messages of conceptual dimension to the public. She will speak about her sound practicing, transacting from the image to the sound, transforming the digital images to sound, seeing the soundtracks. Mekawei uses the optical transfer from the musical conversation, transferring the sound waves to visual forms.

CV: Yara Mekawei is a Cairo-based electronic music composer and sound artist. A prolific artist and scholar, Mekawei’s sonic bricolages draw inspiration from the flow of urban centers, and the infrastructure of cities. She follows her projects through a research point of uniting her work to the work of the other. In her work, she shows an intangible aspect of her personality that exposes the femininity in an East African society. yaramekawei.wixsite.com

Agnieszka Kozłowska Title: Carved by light: photograph as a direct physical trace

The presentation will give an overview of Kozłowska’s practice, which stems from experiments in the medium of photography and is driven by a fascination with the moment of photographic exposure, when a tangible link is formed between the light-sensitive surface and the physical world. She continuously researches unconventional light-sensitive materials that allow her to make unique photographic artefacts directly in the camera, without the need for printing or other post-production processes. Carrying a self-constructed 10×8in. camera, she performs carefully planned solitary walks across uninhabited landscapes to make photographic exposures that are several hours long.

Agnieszka Kozłowska (*1985) is a Polish artist and researcher whose practice combines performative engagement with remote landscapes and the radical understanding of photography as a mechanism for creating unique physical traces rather than reproducible images. She earned her PhD from Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom, and BA and MA from University for the Creative Arts, Rochester, United Kingdom. She has exhibited in Kunsthaus Zug, Switzerland, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, NAIRS Contemporary Art Center, Scuol, Switzerland, Fotogalleriet, Oslo, Kunstmuseum Chur, Switzerland, among others. She is a laureate of Forecast mentoring programme 2015/2016.

08 lecture Critical approach to Images and Representation: Feminism, Art and Affect The lecture focuses on the role of emotional and affects in the occurrence of artistic practice between feminism and political. Drawing from the historical importance of women and the theoretical resonances between the feminine sexuality, art and visibility the theory of affective turn has gained significant currency over the last decade as a transdisciplinary practice in art. affect theory rightly questions the inherited Western philosophical idea that the fundamental relation of human beings to the world and to others What is often missing from these framework is feminist knowledge on affect, and also discussions about used narrative/methodology in representing emotions as political attachments and medium in contemporary capitalism, that draw out the intimations from very neoliberal hyper sensible attachment to capital. Thus, the question of affects and to be affected is question of power relation. Theory of emotions and feelings, in turn, has yet to address the challenges posed by digital cultures to affective politics of images. The affectivity in digital age can be perceived as politics of new era. Book: Ann Cvetkowich, Depression: A public feeling (Duke University Press, 2012)

At 12.30

Hosted by Elke Gaugele and Elke Krasny in the frame of the Gender Studies Course, Institute for Education in the Arts.

In her presentation Sara Farris will discuss some of the themes laid out in her new book, In the Name of Women's Rights. The Rise of Femonationalism (Duke, 2017). Farris' book explores the ways in which feminist ideas are often exploited by anti-Islam and xenophobic campaigns. She coins the term ‘femonationalism’ to describe the practices and claims that, by characterising Muslim men as oppressors and by emphasising the need to rescue Muslim women, these anti-Islam groups use gender equality to justify their prejudice.
