ON LYOTARD’S IMMATÉRIAUX

This weekend, join Daniel Birnbaum, Sven-Olov Wallenstein, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, and Koo Jeong A in conversation at Frieze London for the launch of Birnbaum and Wallenstein’s new Sternberg Press book SPACING PHILOSOPHY: LYOTARD AND THE IDEA OF THE EXHIBITION.

Birnbaum and Koo will also be in Berlin a week later.

“In 1985, the philosopher Jean-François Lyotard curated Les Immatériaux at Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Though widely misunderstood at the time, the exhibition marked a ‘curatorial turn’ in critical theory. Through its experimental layout and hybrid presentation of objects, technologies, and ideas, this pioneering exploration of virtuality reflected on the exhibition as a medium of communication, and anticipated a deeper engagement with immersive and digital space in both art and theory. SPACING PHILOSOPHY analyzes the significance and logic of Lyotard’s exhibition while contextualizing it in the history of exhibition practices, the philosophical tradition, and Lyotard’s own work on aesthetics and phenomenology. Les Immatériaux can thus be seen as a culmination and materialization of a life’s work as well as a primer for the many thought-exhibitions produced in the following decades.”*

HANS ULRICH OBRIST IN CHICAGO

As part of Art Design Chicago—a citywide celebration of the city’s arts and design legacy—the first U.S.-based marathon by Hans Ulrich Obrist will be held this weekend.

CREATIVE CHICAGO—AN INTERVIEW MARATHON takes a “multi-dimensional, multidisciplinary look at creativity in the city—past, present, and future. Bringing together artists, authors, activists, architects, historians, musicians, philosophers, scientists, and Obama Presidential Museum director Louise Bernard, the CREATIVE CHICAGO marathon examines the numerous sparks that make the city a center for art, design and architecture.”*

Obrist’s career as a documentarian has been strongly influenced by the late Chicago raconteur Studs Terkel, whose first book of oral history was the landmark Division Street, America (1967).

“[Terkel] gave me a lot of tips [about] how to actually do an interview. He became my mentor, my teacher… Marathon Chicago is an homage to Terkel. Without him, without his encouragement, my interview project would not have happened the way it has happened.” — Hans Ulrich Obrist

Amanda Williams, Art Green, Barbara KastenBrandon Breaux, Cauleen Smith, Dawoud Bey, Eddie Bocanegra, Eula Biss, Eve Ewing, Fatimah Asghar, Gerald Williams, Jeanne Gang, Joseph Grigely, Stanley Tigerman, Theaster Gates, and Tim Samuelson will join Obrist at Navy Pier, the site of EXPO CHICAGO, which is collaborating on the event with the Chicago Humanities Festival.
