I’ll be speaking at this event, with my talk on 19 May on the topic of ‘Terror and the State of Territory’. Gudrun Harrer and Saskia Stachowitsch will be responding. My talk will draw on previous work on territory, both political and historical-conceptual, with some reference to more recent events and my work on terrain.
Talks in the series will be in English and German. There is an English version of the programme here. I’ll share the recording when available.
Pod save Austria
Addresses on the State of the Nation(s)
May 14-20, 2018, daily at 6pm (CET)
Live from the studio at “Bau.Stelle Parlament“, Vienna
Pod Save Austria, a performative installation between radio art and podcast, revives the radio tradition of political invocations of community. The starting point is the observation that sovereignty today appears to be diffusing and is increasingly producing porous nation-states. But the autonomy of the subjects is also caught in dense networks of technicalities and mega-structures that operate in the background. In a series of public talks in this rhetoric that formerly served to represent governments, thinkers, artists and political activists attempt to find partial sovereignties in the face of collapsing worlds.
