The Jackman Humanities Institute Program for the Arts 2020-2021 on the annual theme of Collectives presents:
Dramaturgies of Resistance: Collectivity, Performance, Dialectics
Hito Steyerl: Lecture
Friday 22 January, 12–1:30 pm
Hito Steyerl is an internationally renowned artist, filmmaker and scholar whose deft navigation of the disparate modes of art-making and theorizing continues to expand the ways we experience and examine the social roles of art and museums, experimentation with media and forms of presentation, and our interactions with realized and potential uses of artificial intelligence. At this unprecedented time, when it seems as if “everything is canceled,” Steyerl’s most recent work explores the complex relation between spread (of conspiracy theories no less than viral contagion) and simulation (from the automization of performance to our capacities for virtual interaction with statistical probability of human risk). More information on Steyerl's recent exhibition "I Will Survive" can be found at the Düsseldorf Kunstsammlung (K21) website at https://www.kunstsammlung.de/en/steyerl/
This event is free and open to all, but registration is required.
