Save Event: IRRUPTIVE CHORA Part I Composition

People who have saved this event:


/// An exercise in an embodied act of reading and an attempt of conjuring new versions and propositions for artistic, theoretical, curatorial, scholarly and scientific practices. ///


In this session Nella Aarne (Of Animacy, ICA) and Olga Koroleva  (The Political Animal, The Showroom) share excerpts from Animacies: Biopolitics, Racial Mattering, and Queer Affect and The Second Body to be discussed in relation to the notion of Irruptive Chora. Irruptive Chora, named by Judith Butler and revivified by Rebekah Sheldon, points to a dynamic and autonomous space where ideas have a potential and energy to generate and transmit themselves. In Toxic Animacies, Inanimate Affections Mel Y Chen discusses lead as the toxic protagonist in US-China socio-economic historicity, while Daisy Hildyard puts forward her take on the blurring of physical boundaries in humans and non-human bodies through a series of essayistic investigations The Second Body. No preparation for the session necessary.
