Reconsidering Feminism: A Year in Review
quote..."Over the last year, a series of exhibitions and cultural initiatives in New York and elsewhere have sought to reconsider the feminist legacy in contemporary art and the new directions it has inspired in the work of emerging artists and collectives. This roundtable discussion with artists, critics, and historians will include a critical review and analysis of such events. It will also include an attempt to envision the steps to follow in the collective efforts to write recent feminist art history and implement the lessons learned from these initiatives. Participants include Janine Antoni, artist; Aruna D'Souza, Assistant Professor of Art History and Women's Studies, Binghamton University; Sharon Hayes, artist; and Molly Nesbit, Professor of Art History, Vassar College, contributing editor, Artforum, and (with Hans Ulrich Obrist and Rirkrit Tiravanija) organizer of the ongoing project Utopia Stations. Moderated by Connie Butler, The Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings, The Museum of Modern Art".

Representing Dada
quote..."To mark the close of the international Dada exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, in collaboration with The Museum of Modern Art, New York, MoMA hosted a day-long symposium to consider issues involved in representing Dada through texts, images, and objects, with a particular focus on the semantics of display. A distinguished group of scholars discussed landmark Dada exhibitions and past publications, with the aim of addressing how Dada has been defined historically, geographically, and conceptually.

listening by jean-luc nancy

"Music is the art of the hope for resonance: a sense that does not make sense except because of its resounding in itself. It calls to itself and recalls itself, reminding itself and by itself, each time, of the birth of music, that is to say, the opening of a world in resonance, a world taken away from the arrangements of objects and subjects, brought back to its own amplitude and making sense or else having its truth only in the affirmation that modulates this amplitude."


Lorna by Lynn Hershman

«Lorna» belongs to the very early interactive works of art of the 1970s. Even before there were computer-supported systems to develop an dcontrol multimedia systems of presentations. Lynn Hershman's environment could be seen as prototype for interactive and non-linear film narrative. She presents the story of Lorna, a woman who lives in her apartment without any contact to the outside world. She suffers from loneliness and despair. An important object in this spatial seclusion is of course the television—mediator to the world and apparatus of interaction. The observer finds himself in the role of the protagonist again. He searches for the continuation of the story and for existential logic in the labyrinth of scenes. The jumps, circular arguments, and breaks in teh course of the pictures are bewildering, depicting the psychological state of the main character. Many more or less voyeuristic points of view form a piecture of the self-directed existence of a person only confronted with herself. Lynn Hershman's work ranges between bitter satire and desperate drama—the outcome remains open. Three possibilities can lead to the end of the story: despair and death by suicide, departure and escape by leaving the apartment followed by air travel, and—maybe the most thrilling variant of all—shooting the television. Death to the medium.
