bifo 008

    After the earlier two workshops in the series our starting point is in the topography of the closed reality of European crises: the entrance of the bare reality of life’s precariousness back in the social experience, the acceleration of the Infosphere and the dismantling of social welfare, the exhaustion of possible at our disposal, social life becoming-swarm, and the consequent morphostasis, loss of our singular ways of becoming.   The workshop tries to elaborate further on the breakdown of the affective relation in language, the outsourcing and automation of memory,...

Seminar with Peter Pal Pelbart

Pelbart_photo

A workshop with Peter Pál Pelbart, April 18 to 21, 2011. We should imagine a cartography of exhaustion. Exhaustion of the possible. Perhaps it should be a kind of molecular symptomatology, like the one of nihilism that Nietzsche once did do well. Perhaps we should think about exhaustion according to the Beckettian categories, like Deleuze, to allow us to understand states of suspension, bankruptcy and collapse, individual and collective, of becoming almost remnant, in terms of vital strategy or of even political resistance.
