4.12.17: Kulturfolger Curatorial Practices: Luxury vs Critique?
December 4, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Could luxury be on the other side of critique? A positive potential and ground for aspiration. The sum of all impulse. Can we make full use of our exorbitant surplus? Can we make new luxurious narratives, which enchant us, acknowledge our mastership, our comedy or our elaborate tragedy? Can we imagine sumptuous sustenance and voluptuous decadence for all whether be it time, space, material,
relational or activity? Lets invent splendid intellect, opulent ideas, and manifest with insane ability. Lets destabilize, detach, abstract from stable statistical rationalization by telling new stories. Perhaps a lost paradise can be found. We conceive abundance.
Kulturfolger’s 2018 program is staged in five acts, engaging a triad of concepts and multiple actors.This talk will provoke the possibility of luxury.
Kulturfolger is a curatorial practice that plays with references, appropriations, texts, images, classifications, entities, myths… An entangled blend of ideas, perspectives and a collage of time, which resists and reworks linear conceptions of history, evolution, and ecology. Kulturfolger is a work in progress, an advocate for uncomfortability, uncertainty, ambivalence, abundance, and acceptance. In working with scientists, artists and philosophers we have successfully redefined the space with a multitude of truths for our visitors and ourselves over the last two years with more than 50 events, in Zurich, Basel, San Francisco, Zagreb.
