Ala Younis: Curating Contemporary Archives

Since the onset of modernity, ‘the archive’ has taken center stage in contemporary situations of crisis and transformation, in both private and public life. Today, as catastrophe repeats with near compulsion, archives are everywhere, across academic disciplines, art media and exhibitions, indeed archives have become the stuff of our urban built forms. What do we do with contemporary archives in modernity? And what does the ubiquity of the archive do to/for us? How might we rethink our approach to ‘curating contemporary archives’?

https://youtu.be/bHHDFaz4Ch4

 

Contemporary scholars, artists, curators, governments, and everyday citizens have responded to the near repetition compulsion of catastrophe in diverse ways around a single belief: human suffering recurs because we forget to remember the traumatic experience of pain. ‘Never Forget’ has become the global humanitarian mantra of our post-Cold War world. Yet catastrophe, human suffering seems to persist, indeed perdure the more we remember its supposed pastness; remembering has become an almost auto-erotic activity without goal. In this talk, we will reorient the faculty of memory – work through human suffering – by asking why catastrophe repeats, how memory has become untethered from its goal, by considering trauma outside experience in contemporary philosophy and the visual arts.

You Are Here: An Adventure in Mapping Exploration and Observation

This workshop takes place at Warehouse421.

This workshop aims to introduce students to the creative process of mapping. Artists, photographers, and designers have long appropriated maps as a means to document and make sense of experience and place. Traditional maps say ‘this is how the place is,’ but artists weave their narratives into subjective, personal, and equally valuable perceptions of place.

This Happening, hosted by the Faraway Bistro will manifest itself into a collective meal in which each participant will be encouraged to interact with their tablescapes in an unconventional manner within the parameters set by the bistro at the time of the Happening.

The napkins also present a sense of community between the participants as they feast alone.

Total Landscaping

Curated by Murtaza Vali, Total Landscaping investigates the ways in which plant life is commonly understood, encountered, represented and consumed in the Gulf, and within similar emergent urban formations across the global south. It focuses in on instances when the unruly vitality of flora is arrested in the service of capitalism and politics, a process that abstracts and reduces it to a color, a verb and an image.

In the Philippines, women get deployed abroad to work as domestic workers or nannies. In order to do so, they frequently leave their own children behind, before throwing themselves into the unknown. In one of the many training centers dedicated to domestic work that can be found in the Philippines, a group of trainees are getting ready to face both homesickness and the possible abuses lying ahead. During role playing exercises, they alternatively play both the roles of the employee and that of the employers. Bordering on fiction, OVERSEAS brings to light the question of modern servitude in our globalized world, while emphasizing these women’s determination, their sisterhood, and the strategies they find to face the ordeals that awaits them in the near future.

Rohit Goel: Remembering, Repeating, Working Through

https://youtu.be/bHHDFaz4Ch4

 

Contemporary scholars, artists, curators, governments, and everyday citizens have responded to the near repetition compulsion of catastrophe in diverse ways around a single belief: human suffering recurs because we forget to remember the traumatic experience of pain. ‘Never Forget’ has become the global humanitarian mantra of our post-Cold War world. Yet catastrophe, human suffering seems to persist, indeed perdure the more we remember its supposed pastness; remembering has become an almost auto-erotic activity without goal. In this talk, we will reorient the faculty of memory – work through human suffering – by asking why catastrophe repeats, how memory has become untethered from its goal, by considering trauma outside experience in contemporary philosophy and the visual arts.

Curated by Murtaza Vali, Total Landscaping investigates the ways in which plant life is commonly understood, encountered, represented and consumed in the Gulf, and within similar emergent urban formations across the global south. It focuses in on instances when the unruly vitality of flora is arrested in the service of capitalism and politics, a process that abstracts and reduces it to a color, a verb and an image.

In the Philippines, women get deployed abroad to work as domestic workers or nannies. In order to do so, they frequently leave their own children behind, before throwing themselves into the unknown. In one of the many training centers dedicated to domestic work that can be found in the Philippines, a group of trainees are getting ready to face both homesickness and the possible abuses lying ahead. During role playing exercises, they alternatively play both the roles of the employee and that of the employers. Bordering on fiction, OVERSEAS brings to light the question of modern servitude in our globalized world, while emphasizing these women’s determination, their sisterhood, and the strategies they find to face the ordeals that awaits them in the near future.
