CCB . December 8th. Thursday . 6:30 pm . Meeting Center

If we call art objects and art gestures those that, when addressed to the collective sensibility, have an emancipatory emotional power and, therefore, a political force, it will still be necessary that the devices that display them and the discourses that accompany them in order to offer them when looking and listening do not subject them to the oriented order of abusive, even erudite, interpretations. Depriving art of its relationship with disorder is like depriving the viewer of its relationship with reality and its subversive energy. When aisthésis is oriented, it is an anaisthesis — an anesthesia — that sets in, depriving us of the fecundity of disorientation and of that fictional energy we call freedom. Inspired by the unique case of Aby Warburg, his scientific method inseparable from the history of his madness, Marie-José Mondzain intends to analyze the fate of some images and see how the words that accompany them may have played a decisive role both in their destiny individual and in their political destiny. – Marie-Jose Mondzain
