BRUTE: Test 1: Transmission Symposium. Co-curated with Michelle Atherton

SHAW, Becky and ATHERTON, Michelle (2013). BRUTE: Test 1: Transmission Symposium. Co-curated with Michelle Atherton. [Show/Exhibition]
Creators:SHAW, Becky and ATHERTON, Michelle
Abstract:Test No. 1 takes the notion of BRUTE as a raw starting point, an approach to collaboration. We will explore the problem of an intellectually ‘cold’ position’, alongside ideas of force including heat, abrasion, friction, and compression. We want to address how the time and processes of force might relate to the allegedly more timeless and dematerialised nature of thought, to consider the conditions of force as applied to materials and upon the material of society. We are interested in banging some disparate things together: ‘Waking and burning, shocking and blasting’, as Rachel Moore describes Hollis Frampton’s work Nostalgia. We are trying to create an experience that does not demand participation nor assumes affect, but tries out the idea of a BRUTE methodology. Speakers: Esther Leslie, Benjamin Noys, Peter Adey, Dale Holmes
