Atelier 35 is bringing a three-day “anti-showcase” entitled Goodbye Language to its Bucharest space, which includes an exhibition opening, a performance, and a lecture, and runs from June 24 to June 26.
The anti-showcase takes Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s “Kafka: Toward a Minor Literature” as its point of inspiration, echoing the question of how one becomes a nomad in one’s own language. Reacting to the difficult and at times acrimonious relationship between art and culture, Goodbye Language “tries to create a space of resistance through formlessness and imprecision”, questioning the relationship between art and philosophy in the modern world.
The opening night launches a group exhibition featuring the works of Zbyněk Baladrán, Alina Popa, Irina Gheorghe, and Tomáš Svoboda. The second evening brings a performance by Adriana Gheorghe called “Dance That Comes From the Mouth”, and the anti-showcase’s closing night brings a discussion with philosopher Marcus Steinweg, editor of the journal Inaesthetics.
