Art Critique and Social Practice cluster
"Avant-Garde and Fantasy"
Presentation Description: In recent years, theorists of engaged art have proposed either an art critical set of concerns - relational aesthetics, dialogical aesthetics, participatory art - or, alternately, a pragmatic programme for politicized cultural practice - tactical media, transversal practice, communicative action and extradisciplinary practice.
This lecture will present some of the background research for my concept of sinthomeopathic practice and will also examine the outcome of this research in terms of a conjunctural complex that is conditioned by drive and fantasy formation.
