Just Add Water: A score, a set of instructions. Do this and you'll get that, guaranteed. Fill in the blank and it's done, easy! It's already been prethought for you, precomposed, predetermined. There's a cost of course; it's straightforward, but always the same. Reliable yet totally uninteresting. We need to experiment, see how we can shake things up. Maybe: It's never the same water that gets added in, always slightly different. Alpine water, or imported from China, we've already found some wiggle room. We wiggle some more, stay within our structure, our enabling constraints, but never seem to stop discovering. We begin to tell stories, abstract ones, using our tactics to fashion props, switching between Alpine and Chinese, creating a rhythm, building and breaking expectation. A makeshift stage. Then the illusion collapses; what are we talking about anyway? Who knows, but we felt something, that's the most important. We begin again…

Occasionally Human

“Relationships to the other does not proceed through identification with a preexisting icon, inherent to each individual. The image is carried by a becoming other, ramified in becoming animal, becoming plant, becoming machine and, on occasion, becoming human.” Felix Guattari


How is contemporary aesthetic production affected by interactions and relations among its productive agencies?
In post-Fordist and post-human conditions of creative and artistic labour, what is the impact of collaborative realms on the production of aesthetic and cultural discourses?
To what extent can we link the value of cultural and artistic production to the specificities of the relations underneath it? To which field of relations (collaborators, friends, akin humans?) can we ascribe the specific relation between artists and curators?

The project seeks to write a chapter in the definition of the ontological nature of the relation between two specific productive agencies, curator and artist, and the impact of this relation on aesthetic production.
The conditions underneath creative production will be examined by the analysis of the relations among its productive bodies, considering the consequences of the contemporary modes of production of subjectivity.
The research aims to explore the extent of a relational and collaborative method to be embedded in the processes of definition of new cultural, aesthetic, affective and existential territories.

The research investigates different artistic and curatorial approaches to sociality as a productive skill, and it will be conducted through a series of conversations where communication, based on language and affinities, will be recorded and analysed in a television-like set.

Félix Guattari / Antonio Negri, Neue Räume der Freiheit. Buchumschlag.


Neue Räume der Freiheit
Félix Guattari / Antonio Negri
Herausgegeben von Isabell Lorey, Gerald Raunig und Alan Roth
transversal texts, Juni 2015
ISBN: 978-3-9501762-9-2
150 Seiten, broschiert.

Aus dem Französischen und Italienischen von Alan Roth
in Zusammenarbeit mit Delphine Bronner, Max Heinrich, Leopold Helbich, Stefan Huber, Adrian Hummel, Robert Kirov, Sarah Lauener, Sophie Michel, Severin Miszkiewicz, Stéphane Nidecker, Roberto Nigro, Gerald Raunig, Noemi Schmid, Linda Semadeni, Juliana Smith, Timothy Standring, Jana Vanecek und Aline Weber.

Im Jahr 1983 flieht Antonio Negri nach Aufhebung seiner parlamentarischen Immunität vor der Verfolgung durch den italienischen Staat nach Paris. Es beginnt damit ein 14-jähriges Exil, in dem der marxistische Philosoph sich stärker als zuvor mit der poststrukturalen französischen Theorie von Deleuze, Foucault und anderen auseinandersetzt. Mit Félix Guattari beginnt er ein Experiment des gemeinsamen Schreibens, das Buch Les nouveaux espaces de liberté.

Neue Räume der Freiheit ist nicht nur ein Zeitdokument aus den „Winterjahren“, den bleiernen Jahren nach der staatlichen Repression gegen die italienische Autonomia und vor dem Zusammenbruch der Sowjetunion, sondern zugleich auch ein vielfaches konzeptuelles Versprechen für eine Zukunft, die heute unsere ausgedehnte Gegenwart ist. Die begrifflichen Erfindungen des späten Guattari zeichnen sich hier ebenso ab wie die späteren Arbeiten von Toni Negri mit Michael Hardt. Es bricht an die Zeit der Vielheiten, des Commonismus, der molekularen Revolutionen.
