Art theorist Anthony Iles at kuda.org
As part of the "Aesthetic Education Extended" project, art theorist Anthony Iles from London will be staying at kuda.org in Novi Sad, on several occasions and through a series of residencies during 2015 and 2016.
In the period from September 25 to October 2, we will continue talks with Anthony related to the problematization of the thesis on aesthetic production relations, the relationship of art and politics as well as their autonomy, and the problematization of mutual determinations of artistic and non-artistic social processes. The joint work concerning the art-theory-politics relationship will result in the publication of a bilingual book of essays in 2016, while during the next stay we will host Anthony and his collaborator Marina Vishmidt.
Anthony Iles writes about critics, fiction, and theory. He is one of the editors of Mute magazine in London (metamute.org), and co-editor of several books: with Mattina Noise & Capitalism (2009), with Stefan Szczelkunpm, Agit Disco (2011), co-author of No Room to Move: Radical Art and the Regenerate City (2010), as well as in the book Communization and its Discontents (2011) with Marina Vishmidt. He is currently finalizing the book Anguish Language - Writing and Crisis, which deals with language as a key aspect of the current social crisis. This research is dedicated to solidarity with the forms of alternative publishing, poetry, criticism, experimental writing, and forms of expression that emerged with the 2007/8 financial crisis. years, taking into account the language that reacts between and through current social struggles.
So far, we have realized several lectures and interventions with Anthony Iles:
