Oxana Timofeeva: The Living Soul, lecture

Do humans and other animals really have souls? If so, what do their souls look like? What are they made of? Where does the living soul, anima, that animates the animal, come from? Where is it located? Where is it located, and in what is it different, if different at all, from the body? Today, such questions might sound naive and obsolete. This talk, however, will demonstrate their relevance.

Oxana Timofeeva is an Associate Professor at the European University in St. Petersburg, a senior research fellow at the Institute of Philosophy of Russian Academy of Science (Moscow), a member of the artistic collective Chto Delat? ("What is to Be Done?")

 

Thursday, 12 July 2018, at 18:00, +MSUM

Guided tour of the exhibition Heavenly Beings. Neither Human nor Animal.

All of us – humans, plants, and animals – are suffering because of climate change, because we are merely raw material for further production and not beings who desire freedom and harmony. This produces the desire to escape our intolerable conditions, to resist – and if we listen to the indirect message our artists are conveying, it is possible to imagine a common resistance shared by all living beings. But are humans able to resist together with plants and animals?

Introduction to the guided tour in English at 17:30.

18:30 Alexi Kukuljevic, “The Birds is Coming”, lecture

Alexi Kukuljevic is an artist and lecturer in Art Theory at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. He is also part of the exhibition Heavenly Beings. Neither Human nor Animal.

Alexi Kukuljevic examines a distinctive form of subjectivity animating the avant-garde – that of the darkly humorous and utterly disoriented subject of modernity, a dissolute figure that makes an art of its own vacancy, an object of its own absence.

 

Friday, 24 August 2018, Museum of Modern Art, MG+

20:30 | Oleg KulikPressionSuPression, performance

Of his current practice Kulik says: Performance is when you can really produce some reality-on-art action, when reality begins to work as it would never otherwise work.

Where is the art product? There is a history, but there is no fact that you can leave after you. There is no idea of eternity, there is nothing out of you, you have finished the action – the art has ended.
