Social Sandwich

2021. Internet – potpuno preplavljen dezinformacijama, trolovima i depresivnim vestima? A možda i nije?

Sendvič druženja je projekat koji se bavi online susretima ljudi koji se ne poznaju i mogućnostima za povezivanje. Umesto da prazno skrolaš kroz news feed tokom pauze za ručak i izlažeš se lošim vestima, možeš da razgovaraš sa nekim iz druge države i da vidiš svet iz novog ugla. Kroz povezivanje sa ljudima iz različitih zemalja i krajeva sveta, svet ponovo može imati smisla.

NOISM # 2

Guest: Arnold Haberl aka Noid (Vienna / Austria)

Art residence and workshop from 05-09. October 2018, Novi Sad

kuda.org & Improstor

 

Workshop participants:
Mirjana Raić, voice
Aleksa Zrnić, trombone
Daniel More, double bass, flute record
Arnold Haberl aka Noid, forehead or electronics

 

The residency was realized within the program New Forms of Research of Contemporary Music, which was developed through the joint work and interest of kuda.org and Improstor from Novi Sad, which have been cultivating the development of improvised music for years. By implementing interactive workshops, multi-day workshops-short-term artistic dispensations (short-term Artist-In-Residency program), and the process of joint creation and performance, we want to enable new levels of music production. This goal is not only artistic but also has a social dimension, because, through this process of creating music, the hierarchy in music production and performance is questioned, erasing the boundaries between the roles of composer and performer. Therefore, the goal of this program is the politicization of art by turning composers into performers, performers into creators, through improvisation and joint work.

Nenad Vujić, a fan of experimental music from Belgrade, wells, and digs in the niches of the eighties Yugoslav cassette production of alternative music, and processes the map on his A hogon’s industrial guide web platform. The primary goal of A hogon’s industrial guide is to collect cassette material and its accompanying materials and create a map for art historians, popular culture archaeologists, and musicologists, which sets out the basic topologies of cassette experimentalism in the former Yugoslavia in the 1980s. Recently, the research and platform have been extended to other Eastern European productions, including a retrospective of these practices in Hungary. http://ahogonsindustrialguide.blogspot.rs/

Discussion and presentation of a book on the political theory of popular music by British musician, composer, and theorist Chris Culter.

FILE UNDER POPULAR - a book by Chris Cutler published by kuda.org

One primary need should be emphasized: that musicians themselves develop a theory of music and culture derived from their practices. Such a theory, accompanied by a struggle for meaningful forms, must be the starting point of our action.

"File Under Popular" is a collection of essays on the political theory of popular music by British musician, composer, and theorist Chris Culter.

The promotion of the book and the conversation about it was organized as part of the event "Festival in Opposition - Arts and Politics of Improvisation", on Friday, October 28 at 8 pm in CK13. Participants in the conversation are: Chris Cutler, Ozren Lazić, Howard Slater, Paul Abbott, Zoran Pantelić, Stevan Kovacs Tickmayer

The translation of the book from English into Serbo-Croatian was realized by Ozren Lazić, and the publisher is kuda.org.

From the translation of the book: "In everyday speech, the term 'popular', whatever it means, is always opposed to the term 'classical' or 'artistic', which, historically speaking, expresses the class difference. Yet in this second, ‘progressive’ form, we find ‘popular’ music that largely contains significant qualities characteristic of artistic and classical music. Its social views, the way it originates and distributes, its production relations may be fundamentally different, but many formal elements and especially the levels of discourse are essentially the same. Of all the music that can be called popular, I think that these represent the most significant transitional forms and suggest upcoming changes. Also, they most clearly point to a deep and radical aspiration (within industrial society as a whole) towards original classlessness. By this I mean the end of privilege, inequality and exploitation. ”(From the essay“ What is Popular Music? ”, Chris Cutler)

You can download the book in pdf format from the attachment to this page.

The book contains essays under the following titles:

What is popular music?

Necessity and choice in musical forms - On musical and technical means and political needs

Sun Ra Intergalactic Search Orchestra

The Residents

Phil Ochs and Elvis Presley

Progressive music in the UK

"Progressive" music, "progressive" politics?

Chris Cutler is a percussionist, composer, lyricist, and music theorist. Of the many engagements, the most famous are those with the Avant-rock group Henry Cow, as well as with Art Bears, News From Babel, Cassiber, The (ec) Nudes, P53, The Science Group, Pere Ubu ... Dealing with music for over four decades, Cutler can be heard on over a hundred music releases. Of the numerous collaborations, those with John Rose, Fred Frith, Zeena Parkins, Iancu Dumitrescu, Peter Blegvad, and Stevan Kovac Tickmayer, etc. can be highlighted. Cutler also runs an independent label, Record Records. Together with associates from Henry Cow, he initiated the Rock in Opposition movement, which articulated demand for resistance to the music industries in order to promote the work of marginalized music groups whose music did not enter the radar of commercial music companies because it was based on experimentation and improvisation. In the field of music theory, he deals with avant-garde, popular music, technology, improvisation, the problem of using other people's music in composing, etc. He is the author of the book File Under Popular (1983), a collection of theoretical and critical texts on music from the perspective of artists. Since 2012, he has been conducting radio lectures in Probes, in which he discusses the history of music from the perspective of the development of music production through the web radio program of the MACBA Museum in Barcelona.

The do-it-yourself concept could mean a different way of production, which is the opposite of a hegemon. Or at least who, along with the ruling one, realizes and materializes other and different ways of production. Borghesia today is indisputably what it is today, not what it was until May 1989. This fact cannot be bypassed. The DIY principle lies outside Borghesia. That is, if it was at all possible to connect Borghesia with the ideologies and practices of otherness, it was necessary to cover up and suppress the facts of the mode of production, which, among other things, produced Borghesia.

Anguish Language is a project that approaches language as a fundamental aspect of today’s social crisis. The project explores and develops new forms of publishing, poetry and political speech that have emerged during the financial crisis since 2008 and social struggles that call into question the consequences of that crisis. In CK13, the new group will vocalize texts, sounds, and noises that resonate with the term ‘anguish language’. http://anguishlanguage.tumblr.com

Through a presentation, Howard Slater took us on a journey with the Scratch Orchestra through a brief history of their origins, as well as the continuation of their influence and inspiration to this day. The Scratch Orchestra originated from a series of music composition classes at London’s Morley College. These classes were initiated by Cornelius Cardew, Michael Parsons, and Howard Skempton and were attended by avant-garde musicians and artists interested in sound research, performance, and interventions outside concert halls. From this, the Scratch Orchestra was formed in 1969 and is described in the sketch of the statute as “a large number of enthusiasts who bring their experience and come together for action (making music, playing, performing). https://www.cafeoto.co.uk/events/nature-study-notes/

Interview with architect Emil Jurcan, Pula

Interview with architect Emil Jurcan, Pula

Biography: 
Emil Jurcan

Emil Jurcan talks about the Pulska Grupa, the cooperative Praksa, the "use" of architecture, utilities, etc.

Emil Jurcan is an architect, one of the founders of the architectural cooperative Praksa, a member of the Pulska Grupa and the Civic Initiative for Muzil, in Pula, Croatia. and Civil Initiative for Muzil. These initiatives deal with the organization of public debates, protests, political pressures, workshops, conferences, publications, and exhibitions on the issue of privatization of public resources, especially abandoned military complexes in Pula.

Pulska Grupa is an informal group of architects from Pula. Since 2006, the group has gathered a narrow circle of 8 members - Ivana Debeljuh, Vjekoslav Gasparovic, Emil Jurcan, Jerolim Mladinov, Marko Percic, Sara Perovic, Helena Sterpin, and Edna Strenja, as well as many others. One of the first activities of the group was to organize a student workshop in the former military zone, Katarina, in Pula. The results of the workshop published in the book "Katarina 06 - opening of the Pula coast" caused a public conflict with the political elite, because they completely deviated from the official plans for this part of the coast. Since then, the group publishes publications, organizes demonstrations and exhibitions to agitate the audience towards self-organized urbanism in Pula, especially when it comes to the problem of the sea coast.

The interview was realized within the realization of the TV show Open Barracks, produced by kuda.org and associates, in 2011. The interview with Emil Jurcan was conducted by journalist Dragan Gmizić from Novi Sad, with members of kuda.org.

Interview with Lidija Radojević and Primož Krašovec, DPU, Ljubljana

Lidija Radojević, Primož Krašovec

Lidija Radojević and Primož Krašovec talk about the Delavsko Punkerska Univerza in Metelkova.

Workers' Punk University (Delavsko Punkerska Univerza) is an educational project that provides active education related to current political topics that are clearly avoided by recognized academic circles. For a long time, the self-sufficient knowledge of recognized universities has failed to address issues related to workers, punks, and other marginalized groups, that is, today's social and political reality, which is at a turning point. Workers' Punk University is a project within the Institute for Peace in Ljubljana. The project started in 1996 and is an alternative to official educational institutions. The university is based on collective work and strives to develop critical thinking and open new perspectives regarding the burning issues of today. The annual activities of the University are lectures once a week (every year there is a new subject that lasts throughout the academic year) on selected issues (previous subjects were related to Revolution, new right, love, and politics, new left, postfordism, political ecology, totalitarianism, etc. .); seminars on the interpretation of Marxism and other important social theories (Marx, Marcuse, Brecht, Freud, Altiser, St. Paul, Rousseau, etc. have been studied so far) and a symposium or summer/spring school (previous ones were dedicated to Kant, Adorno, tolerance, Grundrisse, etc.). All events of the Workers' Punk University take place in the former Metelkova barracks in Ljubljana.

More about Delavsko Punkerska Univerza at:
www.dpu.mirovni-institut.si
Description of DPU taken from: http://www.edicijajugoslavija.net

Metelkova or Autonomous Cultural Center Metelkova is an autonomous social center in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It is located on the site of the former Yugoslav army barracks and was squatted in 1993. Today, Metelkova consists of numerous independent spaces for artistic activities (studios, galleries), concerts, lectures, discussions, then offices for non-governmental organizations, a youth hostel, etc. Today, AKC Metelkova is under a strong blow of "normalization" and gentrification.
