Düsseldorf – DFG Schwerpunktprogramm Ästhetische Eigenzeiten
January 28th – 30th 2016
The conference dealt with different aesthetic and artistic practices yielding stasis. Stasis was conceived throughout the presentations as an epistemic break in the sense of establishing a disjunction or discontinuity in otherwise hegemonic regimes and dynamics of temporal perceptivity and analogously political action. The aesthetic-political analogy was discussed as a methodological device designed for the effectuation of change or transformation in arts, politics, and society from varying perspectives including from epistemology, ontology, political theory, visual and performing arts, and literature theory. A strong structural analogy to the problematic of transformation in CCP conveyed promising insights.
