    New communities. Conversation with Yael Bartana.

    Nina Möntmann

    Seminars and conferences Conference
    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.

    The subjective, the collective, the autobiographical. Audiovisuals in Chile during the dictatorship

    Isabel García

    Seminars and conferences Conference
    Sabatini Building, Auditorium

    The subversive practices taking place in an artistic scene fractured by the repression and censorship of Pinochet's military dictatorship use the newly-arrived video camera, with its singular ability to record and document reality, as a medium that permits the mimesis of international practices, albeit contorted into new aesthetic and symbolic forms.

    The reactivation of the collective memory in works that multiply and spread through the social body, television programs other than the official, censored ones, co-exist and are tautened in Santiago's artistic circles, with audiovisuals serving as a medium of circulation, experimentation and reflection during the 1970s and 1980s in Chile.

    The video-essay reflects autobiography, identity and collective memory with traces of orality – in the correspondence on audio tapes between friends and family living in exile, thus providing new narrative and audiovisual possibilities for collaboration between artists.
