Art and the Politics of Individuation:
Affect and the Multiple Body in Cognitive Capitalism

Art and the Politics of Individuation, this year’s Saas Fee Summer Institute of Art, engages the far edge of contemporary artistic and theoretical discourse through the perspective of Cognitive Capitalism. The mutation of labor generated by the information age has led to new sites of production in the mind and brain. This course asks us to consider what may be the ramifications for art practitioners and theorists.

Faculty & visiting lecturers: Marie-Luise Angerer, Julieta Aranda, Archive Kabinett, Armen Avanessian, Elena Bajo, Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Michael Birchall, Nicolas Bourriaud, Peter Brugger, Federica Bueti, Federico Campagna, Juli Carson, Jeremiah Day, Joshua Decter, Johannes Göransson, Catherine Hug, Yuk Hui, Anelis Kaiser, Sharon Kivland, Scott Lash, Isabell Lorey, Geert Lovink, Joyelle McSweeney, Matteo Pasquinelli, Ana Pinto, Susanne Prinz, Dorothee Richter, Nadim Samman, Tomas Saraceno, Aaron Schuster, Starship Magazine, Hito Steyerl, Tom Vandeputte, Marion von Osten, Bruce Wexler, Michaela Wünsch, Octavio Zaya, and more

This project focuses on producing a space that has the ability to reclaim learning as a strategic tactic to influence the commodity aspects of knowledge exchange.
It will instramentalise art practice to produce a site that focuses solely on the ability to exchange and unlearn preconceptions of social and political forms through artistic tools. The space will be a site to demonstrate labor as well as hold artistic interventions that reconfigure the financial hierarchy and issues with accelarationist policy in attempting to reclaim time to learn and to streak time.

The site will turned into a multi-functional installation creating spaces of use and no-use.
Renegotiating the territory of aesthetics and its relation to the ethical. A post-conceptual artist’s lead archive. Follow the commissions here

Artist commissions Include

John Reardon May 2015

Commissioned by mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art), the Alternative Art College and curator, Paul Stewart, Untitled (TWOC) puts the life (movement, mediation, networks, learning, etc) of the curator at the centre of the work and in the process of it’s making and un-making.

Part performance, event, object and installation, Untitled (TWOC) consists of 31 specially designed baseball caps (worn on consecutive days by the curator) and 31 wall pegs (installed in mima for caps to hang on). Each cap comes in its own individually dated boxes and once worn by the curator for a single day is deposited at the end of that day on one of the 31 wall pegs in mima (beginning with first peg, top left).

TWOC moves between performance, event, object and installation, between Middlesbrough and mima and between ‘outside’ and ‘inside’, taking on a growing visibility and materiality as it does so.

Each day of the month, the work ‘begins’ again with curator Paul Stewart, following his movements as it slowly, inevitably finds its way to mima.

TWOC begins Friday May 1st and ‘ends’ Sunday May 31st
