Details about the program (including places).

This One Day About Seminar at Konstfack University of Art Crafts and Design, will research the concept and different aesthetic practices of noise in music and art. Noise as a practice and challenge to dominant cultural forms is part of a history of inquiries within artistic research. Noise relates to discourses in performance art, conceptual art, and new media. Participants are invited to share from their own experience and practices.
Everyone is welcome! In order to plan please sign up to the One day about by emailing!

12:30 – 13:30 Lunch
13:30 – 16:00 Workshop Noise & Alienation with Mattin
Noise & Alienation
During this workshop we will investigate the connection between the mental state of noise understood as the dissolution of selfhood and alienation understood as the objectification of living labour in the valorisation process.

Alienation is a modern concept that emerges with the development of the subject/object relationship that takes a specific form in capitalism. Noise as a form of conflict, disturbance and undecipherable signal can help us to understand the porous and unstable concept of the subject in liberalism, one that is increasingly showing its deficiencies.

If alienation points at the cut between living and dead labour, noise points out at the negative reminders occurring in the process of alienation.

By pitting these two concepts directly, we will try to articulate a theoretical practice of the negative as a prerequisite for a collective investigation of freedom and unfreedom.
