Form / Formlessness
What is a stable form? – It is a conception
Understand formlessness as a process of undoing form
Start from the middle – Deleuze
Work with and through the unstable
Improvisation reveals what forms are already there
Formlessness and potentiality are conected.
Manchev – for thansformation to exist there must be a limit
Bataille – base matter, lower than low / an analogy between base matter (scatological) to the “lower”, marginalized layers of the society (misérables)
“identity” produces the social forms (ex.: whiteness produces blackness) – historicity. The ideologies (eg. neoliberalism) produces new subjectivities, base on how lives are organised, on the expectations towards behavior.
labor is connected to survival
work towards a final product
praxis -> political
arts need to be always in relation to politics -> in disagreement
Artworks are political (work), not the artistic practice (she’s interested in the public sphere)
How the work has an afterlife after it has been “concluded”. The effects it will cause and go through
“holistic approach” to art -> not necessarily differentiation between process and final work.
Object Day 2: I asked a group of performers to do the score in the studio. Instructions: The score starts with a group meditation on its key ideas. Find a spot in the room, choose a position and close your eyes. I then read the score while walking around the space [whilst doing it, I thought the sound should move around the space]. Time frame: 15 min. (it went a bit over that)
