Beschrijving van het evenement
A two-day workshop with artist Tony Cokes, in the framework of exhibition Tony Cokes: To Live as Equals.

Over dit evenement

As a part of the exhibition Tony Cokes: To Live as Equals, the artist presents a two-day online workshop investigating critical themes that circulate through his work, and various intersections with and applications of forms of the theoretical. Topics include frameworks of ideology, violence, representation, critique, and image production, as examined through Cokes’s videos, and many of the writers and thinkers he sources from, including the Situationist International, Louis Althusser, Our Literal Speed, and others. The workshop will examine the uses and limits of theory in critical practice, and the ever-shifting idea of what it means to be critical.

Monday 19 October, 18.00–21.00 hrs CET

On the representation of violence, mass movements, and riots. This day will draw on the works Black Celebration (1988), Fade to Black (1990), and shrinking.criticism (2009), alongside the texts “Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses…,” and “The Decline and Fall of Spectacle Commodity Society” by Situationist International, and “The Decline and Fall of Art Criticism” by Julian Stallabrass.

Tuesday 20 October, 18.00–21.00 hrs CET

Why produce another image? This session explores the proposition of video as a non-representational media, and alternate conditions that could produce different forms of legibility. Works discussed include Evil.27: Selma, (2011) , Evil.8 (Unseen), (2004), and Before & After The Studio Pt. 2 (2019), along with two related texts from Our Literal Speed and other sources.
