Listening to the Archive I: Memoires de Sourds


A Workshop

Listening to the Archive I: Memoires de Sourds :: A workshop around Les Immateriaux :: Date: 30 March 2007 :: Venue: Auditorium, Jan van Eyck Academie, Academieplein 1, 6211 KM Maastricht, Netherlands :: Contact: Antony Hudek at ahudek[at]hotmail.com.

The first in a series of public workshops analysing the impact of Les immatiriaux, the exhibition co-curated by Jean-Frangois Lyotard and Thierry Chaput at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, in 1985. Workshop participants Luca Frei, Marysia Lewandowska, Emily Pethick, Antonia Wunderlich and Peter Zeillinger will address Les immatiriaux as a sum of archives, from the show's two catalogues to the sound records transmitted via headphones during the exhibition. In a bid to rethink Les immatiriaux as an unprecedented phenomenological reflection on excavation, memory, and translation, the workshop will call upon, among other references, Lyotard's late essays (Chambre sourde, La confession d'Augustin), Jacques Derrida's Mal d'archive and Mimoires d'aveugle, as well as contemporary artistic practices concerned with participatory forms of aesthetic engagement.
