BLOCK 10: THREE WHITE SOLDIERS – PERFORMATIVE ACADEMY
10/11 – 7/12
JOHAN FORSMAN & ANDERS PAULIN
Three White Soldiers – Performative Academy, is an invitation to a collective elaboration of some thematic and aesthetic potentials departing from the performance Three White Soldiers. The project is operating in an oscillating field between High Frequency Trading and Shamanic practices. Guided by the protocol of pilgrimage, the work is exploring financial, aesthetic and spiritual aspects of time/spaces not accessible to human perception.
For three weeks we will be juxtaposing performances, lectures, film screenings, concerts and conversations, in a program where we together with invited guests will discuss and investigate how ideas of Time/Space and Material/Immaterial has been developing in contemporary economics, art and science over the last 50 years.
In 1858 Karl Marx writes: Capital by its nature drives beyond every spatial barrier. The conditions of exchange, communication and transport – the annihilation of space by time – becomes an extraordinary necessity for it. This triad of Economy/Space/Time is where we begin. Following the fetish figures of Liquidities and Cowboys, Algo-Spoofers and Sonic Patterns, Astronauts and Rice Futures into the void of contemporary High Frequency Trading.
