NO TITLE

notitle300

NO TITLE är en föreställning om hur verkligheten existerar i språket, och hur denna språkliga verklighet breder ut sig över världen. Det handlar om hur minnen och fantasier glider över i varandra. Det handlar om tingen, och vetskapen att alla ting kommer att försvinna och att inget är för evigt.

NO TITLE handlar om vad en föreställning kan vara och vad den kan göra, vad som utgör dess krafter och gränser. Det handlar om mellanrummet mellan världen och våra tankar om den.

NO TITLE är ett skrivande i rummet, ett skrivande som både adderar och raderar, som rör sig och står stilla. Ett skrivande som tittar på de ting som inte är här, och som återuppväcker det som är här istället för dessa ting.

ENGLISH
No Title is about how reality exists in language and how this extends into real space. It is about how memory and imagination blur. It is about things and how things can be there and gone at the same time, and that what defines this is various. It is about things that are gone and about things that remain.

No Title is about the awareness that all things are impermanent and that nothing lasts forever. It is about things that have gone before their time and things that never quite disappear. It is about what the piece and its making is, what a piece can do, what it is for, what its power and limit could be. It is about the gap between a world and our ideas of it, the invincible gap between thought and experience, between here and there.

No Title is a writing in space, a writing that is both additive and subtractive. It is a writing that traces and erases, that moves and halts, that looks at things that are not there and recovers that which is instead.

20.30 Mini-lecture by Anders Paulin: CEASURA: Rhythm as the presence of absence.

Starting from the work of Mette Edvardsen and thinkers like Agamben, Lacoue-Labarthe and Hölderlin, Anders Paulin contemplate the concept of the Ceasura (the disruption) as an opening for an alternative idea of aesthetic practice. In opposition to the commodified, capitalistic understanding of aesthetics as re-production and re-presentation of the existing world – the concept of the Caesura proposes an aesthetic toolbox more devoted to produce a temporary space in time allowing for that what is normally absent to present itself.
