Deel Benno Premsela Lecture 2017 by Paul B. Preciado

Evenementgegevens

The 2017 Benno Premsela lecture will be given by philosopher, curator and transgender activist Paul B. Preciado. Preciado is one of the leading thinkers in the study of gender and sexual politics. From 2014 to 2017 he was Curator of Public Programmes at documenta 14 (Kassel/Athens).

This year's Benno Premsela Lecture will address architecture as a technology of subject production. Paul B. Preciado's distinctive body of work has not only demonstrated the power of academic and critical frameworks to become entangled with personal and embodied individual practices, but has revealed the link between the space of notional intimacy associated with the subject and the larger systemic forces of biopolitics, capitalism, and militarised control at play.

Paul B. Preciado
Paul B. Preciado is an Honors Graduate and Fulbright Fellow. He earned an M.A. in Philosophy and Gender Theory at the New School for Social Research in New York where he studied with Agnes Heller and Jacques Derrida. He holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Theory of Architecture from Princeton University.

His first book, Contra-Sexual Manifesto (Columbia University Press) was acclaimed by French critics as “the red book of queer theory” and became a key reference for European queer and trans activism. He is the author of Testo Junkie. Sex, Drugs and Biopolitics (The Feminist Press) and Pornotopia (Zone Books) for which he was awarded the Sade Prize in France.

Preciado has been Head of Research of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACBA) and Director of the Independent Studies Program (PEI) from 2011 to 2014. He taught Philosophy of the Body and Transfeminist Theory at Université Paris VIII-Saint Denis and at New York University. He has directed numerous projects with artist, activists and thinkers with the aim to develop and explore the field of activism emerging out the mobilization against biopolitical management of the body, sex, gender and race within contemporary capitalism. Some of these projects include: Rhetorics of gender/Politics of Identity (BNV, UNIA, 2003), Postporn Marathon (MACBA, 2004), PornPunkFeminism (Arteleku, 2008), Art after Feminism (MACBA, 2008), IM/MUNE (Emmetrop, 2011), Cuir International (MNCARS, 2011), Gender Lab (Emmetrop, 2012), The Beast and The Sovereign (MACBA/Kunstverein Stuttgart 2015). From 2014 to 2017 he was Curator of Public Programs of documenta 14 (Kassel/Athens).
