III International conference
"Discourse of Other as Jouissance"
November 17, 2017
After 1,5 years of unsystematic existence APXIV as an artistic multitude continues to research the strategies of the self-organisation without any vertical structures, or a single vector uniting fields. Is it possible to have a full or partial concordance in a spontaneous set of subjects? How to find your own discourse without recreating systemic relations being structured by language and culture?
On the 17th of November, 2017 APXIV has featured one-to-one discussion sessions with its residents in the form of speed-dating as a part of the closing event for the Third International Conference “Discourse of Other as jouissance”. Thus we renounce the traditional presentation format where the knowledge is passed from orator to the listeners and turn the structure to the dialectical form of the knowledge production which is created in a dialogue between an artist and a visitor.
Artists and topics proposed for discussion:
Ruslan Polanin: Children of the Saturn. Melancholy as an ontology
Lika Gomiashvili: Archetypical models in the digital environment
Exhibitionism as an artistic strategy
Vladimir Savostin: Consumption as an inability to accept death
Reality and the digital utopia
Fluid identities and emerging in this context the concept of dissociative fugue
Maria Cheloyants: Gender-normative matrix and mass culture
Implosivity of the meme into modern mind
Anastasia Soboleva: Room spectacles of war
