Lecture by Aneta Stojnic, Belgrade, organized by Elke Gaugele (IKL) and Marina Grzinic (IBK):

LIMINAL BODIES, (DIS)EMBODIED SUBJECTIVITIES AND TECHNOLOGIES OF CONTROL

performance theory.jpgThis lecture is to examine the major reconfigurations introduced into the body politics and genealogies by the influence of new technologies (both of insurgency and of control). Therefore, Stojnic argues that it is neither intersectionality not assemblage, but liminality that needs to be in the center of transfeminist genealogies. She will question the meaning of the crucial shift from natural, through cultural to technological bodies in the era of the “society of control” (Deleuze) addressing the manifestations and representations of the body and the corporeal, as socio-cultural, political, psychological, physiological and virtual entities. Contesting the “post-human hype” and taking into the account the genealogy of global changes that lead to the current mass migrations, commonly known as “refugee crises” she will look at the processes of dehumanisation that precede the mechanisms of a subjugation of the other. The question that will be examined is what are the new subjectivities and embodied politics that emerge in such conditions.

Opening of the exhibition

The  Art of Ignorance  / Kunst der Ignoranz

MAIZ, Hofgasse 11, Linz

The exhibition is a result of a long process of workshops with migrants and refugees in which we were dealing with topics of ignorance, un/knowledge and de/learning. In a series of theoretical and practical workshops we explored the epistemic violence in the context of migration, as well as the topics such as art and activism; knowledge and power; decolonial aesthetics; solidarity and alliances; strategies of empowerment and possibilities for struggle etc. Various artistic methods were applied in order to address the issues brought up as important by the workshop participants.
All the art works in the exhibition were developed by the workshops participants in the collective process of learning and discussions.
Workshops participants: Ahmad Alnachem, Firas Karh-moham, Gulbahar Sallo, Germana Palmiotti, Hannah Goebel, Mariya Zhariy, Miguel Sánchez Barea, Saif Sahoud, Twana Kushnau, Victor Tapio Rangel Kuoppa
Workshops leaders and curators: Aneta Stojnić and Vivian di Iorio

Tracing Information Society

With: Noit Banai and Aneta Stojnić (special guests) and the working
group Technopolitics (Sylvia Eckermann, Doron Goldfarb, Armin Medosch,
Gerald Nestler, Felix Stalder, Axel Stockburger, Matthias Tarasiewicz,
Thomas Thaler and Ina Zwerger).

Tracing Information Society is a project by the Technopolitics Working
Group that engages with the development and institutioning of
information society. It’s current version is a graphical timeline in the
format of 2 x 7 meters, which is on view at the exhibition SOCIAL
GLITCH. Radical Aesthetics and the Consequences of Extreme Events at
KUNSTRAUM NIEDEROERSTERREICH, Vienna. The working group Technopolitics
is a circle of artists, theorists, curators, and journalists who have
been meeting regularly since 2011. The timeline entries are as
heterogenous as the group, they can therefore not be subsumed under one
umbrella theory but follow different threads – on global protocols and
the political economy, on arts, culture and intellectual currents, on
science and technology – which all share modes of criticality.

Setting the Stage for the Post-human Performer

This paper responds to the political and ethical focus of the conference addressed through the question of digital identities and analysis of changes that digital technologies brought in contemporary understanding of the body. Referring to Jon Mckenzie’s proposition of performance as onto-historical formation of power and knowledge, on the one hand, and revisiting Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto after the species have met, on the other, I shall analyze the crucial shift from natural through cultural to technological bodies, in relation to the performing subject. Thirty years after Cyborg Manifesto the question of the body as a social construct is more relevant than ever. The technological environment that is here at stake is neither politically nor ideologically innocent. The information communication technologies are defining the conditions of neoliberal globalization. Therefore we need to constantly re-articulate our position when we perform with(in) technology. In this regard I will focus on the construction of the social, cultural and personal identity in media-dominated environment. What happens with the body when it performs in the digital space? How does it relate to its digital representation? What happens with performer’s subjectivity in a digital era, it the situation when the performer becomes the final instance in the global network structure of cyberspace? Human beings no longer perceive their own bodies as fixed, finished, organically complete entities, but rather as fluid, extendible bodies in the permanent process of becoming. In this context I intend to explore how the meanings are created through interrelation between the body and technology and elaborate how these newly established relations, protocols and procedures are, and can be used in performance (artistic) practices.

Occupy Antigone Tradition, Transition and Transformation in  Performance

DSCN3556

Within the pannel Antigone’s Scenes of Death (18th March at 15h) I will present my paper:

(Un)dead and (Un)buried From Antigone to Chelsea Manning  

abstract: The the main topic in this paper will be the motive of burial, and the impossibility of it, in the Oedipus Trilogy, as the allegory of suppression e.i the unsuccessful suppression of a trauma that keeps reappearing as a symptom. Methodologically I intend to approach the Antigone as a performative discourse, thus asking a question how to stage a discourse of Antigone today? Relating to Michel Foucault’s text “What is the author?” and his understanding author’s name as serving to characterize a certain mode of being of discourse, I shall try to extend this idea on the concept of Antigene who’s name in not marly a name of a character in a play or myth, but rather a name that performs a certain role with regard to narrative discourse, assuring a signifying function. To occupy Antigone as the conference suggest thus means to answer the question what is the performative discourse of Antigone today? I shall first approach the issue from psychoanalytic aspect (deriving from Freudian theory, but also Butlers’ interpretation of kinship), then elaborating it in the framework of contemporary performance and theatre studies. Central analyses in my paper will consider three moments I designate as key for understanding the Antigone myth, and play, in above mentioned context(s). These are: a) the burial of Oedipus (Oedipus at Colonus) – that had to be performed secretly so that no one could find out the location of his grave and relocate his dead body; b) ban on Polynices’ burial, as the focal point of conflict in Antigone; c) Antigone’s fate of being sentenced to death by being blurred alive. In the first part of the paper I will argue that those three bodies: the absent body, the unburied body and the undead body – function as different manifestation of suppression of the same conflict. They become the bodies active in their death, appearing as a locus and symptom of the collective trauma, and at the same time speaking about it. They become performative in a way that escapes both the governance of biopolitics, and, in contemporary terms even more importantly, governance of necropolitics. In the second part of the paper I will try to examine what is the (un)suppressed conflict, and collective trauma that Antigene is or can be talking about today, and finally who is contemporary Antigone. In this regard instead of a analyzing a specific theatrical performance I shall use the tools of performance studies (as if a performance) to case study the case of Bradley Manning and its media representation.

These shifts produced and keep on producing, unstable changes in the architecture of the reality, indicating the influence of the symbolic aspect over the physical aspect. Weather we talk about (bio)technologically and medically altered physical bodies or mediation of the so called “natural” body into the cyber/digital space, human beings no longer perceive their own bodies as fixed, finished, organically complete entities, but rather as flux, extendible bodies in the permanent process of becoming. This will be connected with questions of biopower and biopolitics.

Book Presentation Utopia of Alliances, Conditions of Impossibilities and the Vocabulary of Decoloniality. Löcker Verlag, Wien 2013 Edited by the Editorial Group for Writing Insurgent Genealogies

The book is the outcome of processes of studying, learning and de-learning, established in the Post-Conceptual Art Practices class at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. What’s at stake here is to reflect not only on historical colonialism but also on the ways in which capitalism frames the world we inhabit. The notion of decoloniality has provided a radical option with which to rethink learning processes coming from positions that are not exclusively Western-orientated but are instead formed by other political-social contexts and perspectives.

Seminar by Dr Aneta Stojnic Conceptual Art and Techno-Bodies (“cyborg” and “queer” in the new technology environment) 2 Lecture: Re-elaborating the “Cyborg manifesto” (D. Haraway, 1984)

Abstract: The lecture no. 2 will re-elaborate the “Cyborg manifesto” (D. Haraway, 1984), after 30 years in the first world the question of the body as a social construct is more relevant than ever. The technological environment that is here at stand is neither politically nor ideologically innocent. In the contemporary world, information communication technologies are defining the condition of neoliberal globalization. Therefore we need to constantly re-articulate our position when we interact with(in) technology. We need to “queer the cyborg”. In this light Stojnic will offer a historical analysis starting from occurrence of the concept of cyborg in fiction to the present moment of “cyborg society”. Her thesis is that unlike cyberpunk distopian fictions where the cyborgs represented the margins of the society i.e. the asymmetrical others, today the possibility of “cyborgization” of once own body becomes the privilege of those who can afford it. Contemporary cyborgs have become the first in relation to whom are constructed the imperfect, dispensable, mortal others. _____________________________________________________________________

Seminar by Aneta Stojnić Conceptual Art and Techno-Bodies (“cyborg” and “queer” in the new technology environment)

1st lecture: Interrelation between the body and technology

A short history of projects of how these newly established relations, protocols and procedures are, and can be used in performance (artistic) practices, with the emphasize on the practices that affirm critical thinking in post conceptual art. Abstract: The lectures will focus on the construction of the social, cultural and personal identity in media-dominated environment, relating to the contiguity between “cyborg” and “queer” and their implications in the new technology environment. The cyborgs represent liminal beings that do not seek for the stable essentialist identities. In the myth of the cyborg Donna Haraway sees the political potential to liberate feminism from tendencies toward unified identification, arguing that instead feminists should seek for alliances based in affinity rather than identity. However, almost 30 years after the “Cyborg manifesto” (Haraway, 1984) self-design has become a common, one could say, an everyday practice in the first world, thus the question of the body as a social construct is more relevant than ever. The mentioned topics will be addressed within the discursive framework of conceptual art practices, performance studies and theory/philosophy of media. Last but not least we will focus on the question of how these newly established relations, protocols and procedures are, and can be used in performance (artistic) practices, with the emphasize on the practices that affirm critical thinking in post conceptual art. http://m1.antville.org/

Open Systems | Issue 3 and ARTSLAB

Open Systems is pleased to present Issue 3 in which the guest editor Saša Nabergoj intends to explore and generate new ideas on current curatorial practices that bear the important overarching shifts. The issue evaluates prevailing models of the curatorial activity from curating that “situates itself between research, teaching and reform” to also understand curatorial practice in its diversity as something beyond the realm of art. The project curators Aneta Stojnić and Nikola Dedić address in ARTSLAB 3 the need of re-thinking the politics of memory as a crucial aspect in understanding the present – since the power over memory is the power over identity – towards “re-reading” Yugoslavia in the light of the current national-capitalistic consensus and its consequences. _____________________________________________________________________

lecture:
Video Killed the Theatre Star
To understand the contemporary moment in which the change of the ontology of the performance is happening, as well as the change of time-space paradigm and the subjectivity itself, firstly we need to comprehend the complex set of social, cultural, artistic and historical circumstances that brought to these shifts during the past hundred years. In this lecture I examine the influence of the appearance of the new media to the development of contemporary theatre in 20th and 21st century as well as the establishing of the performance as an autonomous discipline. Usage of new media technology in performing arts allows simultaneity as well as introducing uncertainty into the status of reality. The question is: what this means for the performing arts i.e. what is their possible role and function in the contemporary “screen society”.

Aneta Stojnic, Ana Isakovic, Marko Đorđević, Sava Jokić ; This collage is a theoretical art work – meaning that we used theory as artistic material in order to create a textual and visual plane for discussion of the subject ofthe politicality of performance (and art in general) throughout the 20th century. We are not offering unambiguous narrative or chronology – but we tried to to see more profound inartistic relations / associations in the treated material by pointing out similarities, developments, or ruts of certain ideas, through juxtapositions. It is designed to invite viewers to think of new concepts for relating art and politics by means of visual, and intellectual stimulation. *Umetnost i/kao politika (Art and/as Politics) is a working group within the Deschooling Classroom project, whose activities are based in the structure of self-educational working process. Our theoretical practice developers in the area of re-politization of the humanistic discourse.

ENPARTS OPEN CAMPUS – Part Two Dansens Hus STOCKHOLM, Sweeden I participated ENPARTS open campus in Stockholm where I worked together with 14 international artists on development of interdisciplinary projects within framework of performing arts. The daily work consisted of discussions and workshops complemented by inspiring lectures, and visits by selected experts from various fields. Dansens Hus offered its magnificent facilities and technical support for the workshop, and stands as the main venue for Open Door – an open presentation of the workshop. participating artists: Tom Engels (BE), Jan Rohwedder (DE) Miguel Alvarez-Fernandez (EP), Josue Moreno Prieto (EP), Claire Cunningham (GB), Erika Tasini (IT), Aneta Stojnic (RS), Ljiljana Tasic (RS), Miona Petrovic (RS), Jovana Rakic Kiselcic (RS), Dorna Aslanzadeh (SE), Rosalind Goldberg (SE) During the intensive proces we organized ourselfes into working groups developing specific projects. Finally we ended up with six performances, two films and one installation turning the whole Danses Hus into one exhibition space on the Open day.

11th – 13th june 2011 ENPARTS OPEN CAMPUS – Part One ENPARTS – Open Campus is an interdisciplinary and intercultural project organized by Dansens Hus Stockholm. ENPARTS Campus is dedicated to creating extraordinary conditions for young artists. The first workshop, The Electric Body, was held in Venice in 2009, and the second, Body is What Remains, in Belgrade in 2010. Dansens Hus will host the 2011 workshop, Open Campus, focusing on artistic practice and the changing role of artists. It will use open methods to establish the concerns and wishes of the participants, and together with the artistic coordinator Anna Koch, launch an investigation of artistic processes in an interdisciplinary context, through collaboration. ENPARTS (European Network of Performing Arts) is a five-year EU project seeking to establish sustainable collaboration between different partners and artists in the field of contemporary performing arts. The network consists of seven European partners from five different countries headed by the La Biennale di Venezia in Italy. In addition to Dansens Hus, the other ENPARTS partners are Berliner Festspiele, Spielzeit’Europa and Musik der Jahrhunderte in Germany, Dance Umbrella in the U.K., Musicadhoy in Spain and Bitef, Republic of Serbia, with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union. On a two day pre-meeting selected artists will discuss and set the theme for the workshop in August. The meeting will use open space as a method to map the interests and concerns, and then through discussion choose the topic(s) and methods for the workshop.

Within the panel “Reconfiguring Memory” – 29th May at 10h – I will present my paper
Decolonizing New Media Technology – Questions of Politics and Performativity
Starting form the thesis that the digital constitutes one of the most important contemporary sites for production of the political power, in this text I’m researching the role of technology in geopolitics of knowledge.In the contemporary information society cyberspace has become the major site for the production and construction of global memory, knowledge and history. However, (digital) technology does not carry the ideological status of its own, but it appears both as the tool and the environment for reproduction of the capitalism and colonial matrix of power. Analyzing the role of technology in the contemporary system of power I argue that today technology has become the most powerful tool for the governance of population through the control of the body, the mind and every aspect of life, especially those directly related to subjectivity, i.e. the most powerful tool of biopolitics.
In this light we need to once again re-investigate and try to re-interpret the relation between (what we call) the reality and the cyber space. This relation I analyze through the phenomenon of performative repetitive mechanism – process that simultaneously produces and eschews content leaving us with an empty form. I argue that performative repetitive mechanism can be applied to cyberspace and its function in/towards reality where cyberspace and reality relate to each other as form and content, where content is abnormal and form is normal. Cyberspace becomes the form for normalization of abnormality, the tank for emptying the reality i.e. “the place” of executing the nullifying of the ideology.

SKC Belgrade / 18:00 h

lecture: New Media Image and Performing Arts: Modes of Interaction

 In this lecture I deal with modes of interaction between performance/performing arts and screen image, as well as the role of new media in post-drama theater. In the context of electronic representation and reproduction of performing arts that most often reduce itself to translation to screen image, I’ll analyse the phenomenon of the screen in terms of its genealogy and position relating to body of the viewer and the body of the performer. Taking as theoretical framework the performance studies, discourse of post-drama theater, and screen theory I’ll investigate the possible modes of interaction between new media image and performance in the fields of theater, performance art and video installation. I’ll discuss in detail the relation between the screen and the body of the performer where the present body becomes the final destination whilst fascination with the living body evokes the striving for that which lies behind the frame of appearance. Discussing the ethical implication of this matter, I’ll try to show the processes in which the use of technology in performing arts provides the simultaneity and brings uncertainty in the reality status of that what has been shown. Key words: screen image, performance, interaction, body ________________________________________________________________________________________
