Fictitious Capital @, Jul 24

21 July 2016

The Fictitious Capital symposium is on at London’s on July 24.

The event hosted by the non-profit and artist-run organization focuses on money, capital, and value, while examining the “political, economic and psychological fictions that lie behind the decimation of the artist and community spaces in London”.

Under the framing of Marx, Lacan, and Deleuze’s philosophies, the symposium aims to ask questions related to art under the threats of finance, art in relation to capitalist modes of consumption, and whether or not capital can be used differently in art and beyond.

Participants include artists and writers Dave Beech, Andrew Conio, and Emily Rosamond, as well as economist Anca Carrington,

8 December 2015

The ICA is hosting a new all-day symposium on the theme of ‘Liquidity’ at its London space on December 9.

The event questions how “art flows, money flows [and] life flows” sustain and oppose each other and “whether art can capture the axiomatics that bind these conjunctive and opposing forces together”.

The symposium begins at at 11am with introductions by organiser Andrew Conio, and has six different speakers, including Anastasios Gaitanidis on ‘Psychoanalysis and Money’, Philip Goodchild on ‘Matter, money and time: three different kinds of liquidity’, and Oliver Ressler on ‘The Visible and the Invisible’.

Plague of Diagrams @ ICA, Aug 20 – 23

18 August 2015

A new group exhibition and programme of performances, talks, and discussions titled Plague of Diagrams opens at London’s ICA this week, running from August 20 to August 23.

Organized by David Burrows and Dean Kenning in collaboration with Ami Clarke, Andrew Conio, John Cussans and David Osbaldeston, the exhibition examines the function of diagrams in art as “expanded diagrammatic practice beyond the graphic presentation of information”.

Envisioning diagrams as “abstract machines activated through performance or thought”, Plague of Diagrams invites 27 artists to participate in the exhibition and its programme, including performances by Ami Clarke and Plastique Fantastique, as well as participation by Benedict Drew and Joey Holder, among others.

See the exhibition page for details. **
