QUAD Arts centre | PaintingDigitalPhotography conference

The PaintingDigitalPhotography conference seeks to investigate how artists and theorists are currently engaged in critical discourses around the shifting relationships of painting, photography, and digital manipulation. How are these mediums being defined in their connection to one another as new hybrid forms are being created through their combination? What do these combinations tell us about these mediums and disciplines, their natures and practices, in the digital age? In what ways might digital imaging and manipulation enable a painting / photography interconnectivity? Central to the debate will be the focus on the blurred boundaries, common threads, antagonisms, distinctions, and growing interrelationship between painting, photography, and ‘the digital’ in the development of new creative practices.

    RCA / ARCHIVE / Olivier Richon and Victoria Walsh

    Soah Research presents:

    Liberté

    Deactivating Desire. Albert Serra’s latest film, Liberté with Alexander García Düttmann

    This is a dark tale of the Enlightenment, a formal costume drama where excess is the methodology for the exploration of desire, language and representation.

    The screening will be followed by a discussion with Olivier Richon.

    After growing up in Barcelona, Alexander García Düttmann studied in Frankfurt am Main with Alfred Schmidt and in Paris with Jacques Derrida. Since 1992, he has lived in San Francisco, New York, Melbourne, and London, and he has taught at Stanford University, The University of Essex, Monash University, New York University, Middlesex University, Goldsmiths College, and the Royal College of Art. He is currently Professor of Aesthetics and Art Theory at the University of the Arts, Berlin.

    In 2015, García Düttmann published “What Does Art Know? For an Aesthetics of Resistance” (Konstanz University Press). In this book, he claims that art is a form of thinking and that for this reason it does not produce knowledge. Alexander García Düttmann has translated some of Derrida’s works into German, and Benjamin’s essay on Julien Green into French. He has also “Theory and Practice”, an unpublished seminar by Jacques Derrida on Marx (Éditions Galilée 2017). What is Contemporary Art? On Political Ideology (Konstanz University Press) appeared in 2017, Love Machine. The Origin of the Work of Art (Konstanz University Press) in 2018.
