sniffing the trixter

"how particular artists perform gestures and invoke community differently". -Jan VanWoert reviewed by by Vanessa Ohlraun “If we perceive the pressure to perform to be innately linked to the regimentation of options, to imagine the ethos of a resistant practice implies an exploration of the conditions, situations, and potentialites that lie beyond the option menus and the exclusivity of the yes and no. In artistic practice this dedication to imagining other ways to perform and other ways to enjoy consumption means claiming the imagination and the aesthetic experience as a field of collective agency where workable forms of resistance can be devised.” Not so sure about the collective resistance part, but Id sure enjoy a steamy consuming spoonful of that autonomy. Co-published with Piet Zwart Institute, Willem de Kooning Academy Design by Nienke Terpsma “The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don't know how to be submissive, and so on -- because they're dysfunctional to the institutions.” ― Noam Chomsky
