New communities. Conversation with Yael Bartana

Nina Möntmann

October 29, 2010 - 7:30 p.m. /
Nouvel Building, Auditorium 200

This lecture and screening explore the changes taking place in social formations and their contexts, shedding light on the various forms of new communities and redefinitions of the idea of belonging.

Through a conversation with the artist Yael Bartana (Israel, 1970), examples of two types of social practices are reviewed, one based on co-operation (collective or participative artistic production) and another that points to the speciousness of defining social groups by national, ethnic or religious criteria. As shown by Yael Bartana's work, artists are not only generating images of change in these areas, they are also participating in new forms of collective work and giving shape to experimental and utopian models for the coming community, in the words of Agamben, where the sense of belonging is not based on identity but rather on openness and the absence of local or cultural ties.
