TEXT2SPEECH: Proxy Politics As Withdrawal

12 May 2016

As part of the ongoing reading group series TEXT2SPEECH, this event is based on Hito Steyerl’s essay The Terror of Total Dasein. The discussion and presentation looks at ways in which artists utilize the notion of ‘proxy politics’ in their practices. Co-hosted by the artist collective HARD-CORE, as well as Maximilian Schmoetzer, an artist and member of the Research Centre of Proxy Politics, this workshop will explore the idea of the proxy, a surrogate and decoy, as a method of withdrawal or protest.

Curated by Christian Luebbert and Jenn Pavlick.
