The Micropolitics Group (PoCA) invite you to:

  Suely Rolnik PUBLIC LECTURE: Lygia Calling

  Wednesday, December 5th 5-7pm

  Ian Gulland Lecture Theatre, Goldsmiths

   Suely Rolnik is a cultural critic, curator, psychoanalyst and
  professor at the Universidade Católica de São Paulo, where she
  conducts a transdisciplinary doctoral program on contemporary
  subjectivity. She is co-author with Félix Guattari of Molecular
  Revolution in Brazil, to be released in English translation by
  Semiotext next year and Micropolitics: Cartographies of Desire (1986).
  Most recently Rolnik curated "Lygia Clark. From work to event. We are
  the mould, it's up to you to breathe substance into it', a touring
  exhibition and catalogue on Clark's later work. Refusing to simply
  re-display art works, the exhibition was composed of 63 video
  interviews with Clark's friends, acquaintances, students and
  colleagues about the implications of her experimental, collective
  projects like the 'Nostalgia of the Body' workshops of the early 1970s
  and the individual therapeutic 'Structuration of the Self' sessions
  she undertook on her return to Rio in 1976..

  The Micropolitics Strand of PoCA (The Political Currency of Art group)
  investigates the forces and procedures that entangle artistic
  production and the flexible subjectivities of its producers into the
  fabric of late capitalism. The prefix micro does not indicate 'small'
  or 'mere'. Nor does it assume a belief in the revolutionary potential
  of everyday life, or indicate a retreat into the inner life of the
  subject. Rather, it is invoked to access the registers of desire,
  vulnerability, affect and subjective implication that generate both
  artistic practices and the collective engines of cognitive capitalism.
  If current regimes of cultural and cognitive capitalism are predicated
  on subjective forces, on the collective production of knowledge and
  surplus creativity, how can artists begin to distinguish, let alone
  imagine a practice that does not merely feed and replicate the machine
  itself? How can art practices that in Suely Rolnik's words bring
  'mutations of the sensible' into the realm of the visible or
  speakable, refuse or exit the limited field of possibility inscribed
  by late capitalism? Finally, if it is the very regimes of cognitive
  capitalism that not only capture but also produce flexible, creative
  subjectivities, how could we imagine a micropolitics of
  subjectivation? The research of the group will evolve from these core
  questions and will aim to investigate them through (a) theoretical
  analysis (b) the analysis of concrete situations of existing practice
  (c) the production of events and exhibitions.

  The Political Currency of Art (PoCA) Research Group conducts research
  on the assimilation of critical and counter-hegemonic contemporary art
  practices and their propositions with the interests of more or less
  dominant cultural, state and financial institutions. The operating
  assumption generating the PoCA's research is the condition in which
  contemporary dominant sociocultural ambitions are no longer organised
  around normative or majoritarian standards but emphasise
  individualism, creativity, innovation, difference and questioning.
  These are of course key characteristics of what we have historically
  understood to be the condition of criticality in art. The project
  looks to understand what happens to art, what critical art can do, how
  its operation is to be understood, and what critique now is, in this
  condition when critical art becomes emblematic of what is valued in
  auto-critical societies such as liberal-democracies and the
  institutions and ideologies that promote it. Our research will be
  conducted through a combination of discussion of practice and its
  contemporary conditions together with curatorial and studio-based
  practices.
