2015 / 201512 / Symposium
Fiction As Method – A Guerilla Symposium




4/5 December 2015

The second day of the symposium, on Saturday, 5 December, is taking place at Corner College.

On the occasion of Monica Ursina Jaeger’s solo show Future Archaeologies – Your Assumptions are my Memories at Christinger De Mayo, Zurich, we organise a guerrilla symposium to discuss the possibilities and problems of the “fiction as method – complex”.

Of course, writing novels about the future doesn’t give me any special ability to foretell the future. But it does encourage me to use our past and present behaviors as guides to the kind of world we seem to be creating. The past, for example, is filled with repeating cycles of strength and weakness, wisdom and stupidity, empire and ashes. To study history is to study humanity. And to try to foretell the future without studying history is like trying to learn to read without bothering to learn the alphabet.
From: Octavia E Butler: „A Few Rules for Predicting the Future“

When the Venice Biennale claims to discuss “All the Worlds Futures”, it becomes clear that the methodologies of fiction are no longer just part of the artistic practice, but also of curating, social science and global media.

When the Venice Biennale claims to discuss “All the Worlds Futures”, it becomes clear that the methodologies of fiction are no longer just part of the artistic practice, but also of curating, social science and global media.

With accelerated globalization, the concomitant influence of digital culture and its accessible worlds of knowledge, within the last 25 years, disparate cultures, knowledge and art worlds have become interconnected and contemporaneous with each other. There are many co-existing ways of being in time and belonging to it. Thus, while being increasingly aware of being in the present, we are becoming attentive to other kinds of time. As a consequence, we seem to be living in an expanded present. But how far back – and forth – in time does the durational extension of our present reach?

The symposium brings together artists, curators, writers, critics and other voices to explore how fiction could be defined in regard to their practices, whether through the creation of fictional narratives, concepts fabricated around temporalities or the actual challenging of space-time relations.

Organized by artist Monica Ursina Jäger and curator/writer Damian Christinger.

[en]

The Sympodium sets up a two-and-a-half days live performative event that aims to provide a platform for presenting, discussing and performing Performance Art throughout a panel structure with an accent on moderated discussions and performances. The Sympodium strives to generate an energetic open space for aesthetic experience and exchange of knowledge between the current active practitioners in the field of Performance Art(s): artists, curators, performance study researchers, educators, and their publics. Those committed to Performance Art will share their practices, experience, reflections, thoughts, and research.

The Sympodium is a podium that encourages invited participants to give a very direct subjective response from the material objectives of the event itself. The Sympodium is quasi-academic and brings together practitioners inside and outside Academia to publicly present and discuss their practices and modes of articulation and action. The Sympodium operates within the local, interregional and international Performance Art scene. It strives for different perceptions and a new ontology of the relation between Performance and Art, and a pattern of branching that expands the field of live practices.

Das Sympodium stellt in einer zweieinhalbtägigen performativen Live-Veranstaltung eine Plattform zur Verfügung zum Präsentieren, Diskutieren und Performieren von Performance Art, in einer Podiumsstruktur mit Schwerpunkt auf moderierten Diskussionen und Performances. Das Sympodium strebt danach, einen energischen offenen Raum zu erzeugen für ästhetische Erfahrung und den Wissensaustausch zwischen den heute aktiven Praktiker_innen im Bereich der Performance Art(s): Künstler_innen, Kurator_innen, sowie Forscher_innen und Pädagog_innen zu Performance, und ihr Publikum. Jene, die der Performance Art verpflichtet sind, teilen ihre Praktiken, Erfahrungen, Überlegungen, Gedanken und Forschung.

Das Sympodium lädt als Podium die Teilnehmer_innen ein, aus den materiellen Zielen des Ereignisses selbst eine sehr direkte subjektive Antwort zu geben. Das Sympodium ist quasi-akademisch und bringt Praktiker_innen inner- und ausserhalb der akademischen Welt zusammen, um ihre Praktiken und ihre Artikulations- und Aktions-Modi öffentlich vorzustellen und zur Diskussion zu stellen. Das Sympodium operiert mit der lokalen, interregionalen und internationalen Performance Art-Szene. Es streicht unterschiedliche Wahrnehmungen heraus und erarbeitet eine neue Ontologie des Verhältnisses zwischen Performance und Kunst, in einem Verzweigungsmuster, welches das Feld der Live-Praktiken erweitert.



The Sympodium is supported by Kultur Stadt Zürich, Fachstelle Kultur Kanton Zürich, Pro Helvetia and Ernst und Olga Gubler-Hablützel Stiftung.
