Creating and Dispersing Universes that Work without Working - Jalal Toufic & Anton Vidokle
“Thematically divided into two chapters, led by Toufic and Vidokle consecutively, the program will focus on artistic concerns ranging from how to build and/or disperse a universe that doesn’t fall apart ‘two days’ later, to an inquiry into work in art practice and the possibility of its deactivation and (thus) of sovereign art. The program will be comprised of a seminar by Jalal Toufic that draws on cinema, art, literature and science; exhibitions and publishing projects organized by Anton Vidokle in collaboration with students, visiting artists and e-flux journal; as well as independent research and artistic projects by the program’s participants.
“The program will loosely follow a process of making a film, including postproduction. The application process could function as the preproduction of the program, so we encourage applicants to submit, in lieu or in addition to the cover letter, a 3-minute video discussing their practice and its (strange) attractor(s).”
