Contemporary performances experimenting with human – non-human relations inscribe themselves historically in the Western tradition of religious and political emancipation, based on the call for unconditional equality and liberty, or “equaliberty” (Balibar 2004) between species. In extending this call beyond the human sphere, “non-human performances” activate ideas concerning the closer analysis of this tradition as well as of present-day humanitarian catastrophes. 1) The claim of equality can be unconditional only if it extends beyond the human. 2) Equalization is not only a matter of rights and legislation (Hamacher 2014), but also an exercise of acquiescence, i.e. a bodily practice.

What is meant when one speaks of research presentations in the case of artistic practice? What can it look like?

 

In the course of the two years of the MA Solo/Dance/Authorship (SODA), students are expected to find answers to these questions with the help of specific exercises and works. How can artistic practices be understood as knowledge, and how can gaining knowledge be shown and infused into a discourse? With what means can learning processes and realizations from artistic practice be made visible? In short: how do students learn what they learn?

On three evenings the students present their research processes in performative formats and give insight into their upcoming final project in the following semester. The presentations range from performances, discussions, installations and more.

My talk will explore how Post-Civil Rights era black artists have used performances of sex to reimagine racial critique. Looking particularly at the film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song (1971) and essays by Robert Reid-Pharr, this lecture asks how sexual performance threatens, and potentially, undoes(abbinden) the racially(rassisch) essentialist frameworks that often guide cultural analysis.
