"They say blondes have more—more money, more sex, more fun. My experience says it's true. Artifice=Advancement. So, where does that get you? A Sunday afternoon slot in a geodesic dome in Long Island City and a piece of fish."

Curated and presented by Justin Vivian Bond and Caden Manson.

Justin Vivian Bond. 

e-flux book co-op lecture series: Elizabeth Povinelli

4:00 PM

After the fall of state communism and in the wake of myriad announcements about the end of history that characterized the early 1990s, the near collapse of the financial sector in 2008 opened the possibility of new forms of political life. Perhaps there was still a front and back to history—towards which being was directed and from which it had moved. Events since have not supported this hope. Being remains enclosed, if not by a political form of government (democracy) then by an economic form of compulsion. Rather than neoliberal finance unveiling its internal limits in a global market, democracy has all but given way throughout Europe and has never seemed to be needed in China. If democracy is the back of history, it seems there is no front to neoliberal being. How do we think otherwise about the sources of the political when being seems trapped in an enclosure rather than to have a front or back? Where are the sensuous modes of becoming within the global circulations of being that have defined the character of modern politics and markets?

Elizabeth A. Povinelli’s work has focused on developing a critical theory of late liberalism that would support an anthropology of the otherwise. She has explored this question in four books, most recently, Economies of Abandonment (2011); in the short film Karrabing, Low Tide Turning, selected for the 2012 Berlinale International Film Festival Shorts Competition; and in a graphic memoir. She is currently Professor of Anthropology and Gender Studies at Columbia University.

ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 presents PERADAM

4:00–6:00 PM
ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 and Café 

Celebrate the launch of PERADAM, a small-run press that publishes excellent texts by feasible means, headed by Sam Cate-Gumpert, Elizabeth Jaeger, and Justin Williams. The launch will celebrate the publication of PERADAM's first six projects which present new poetry, fiction, paintings, and a poster series: 12 Saints (Chris Lux and William Rockwell); Pøems (Nick DeMarco); Aeron (Sarah Sieradzki); Spring Notes on Motivational Teamwork (No New Info collective); A-I-M-E-R: (Sarah Elliott); and Avalon (Jessica Calvanico).

 


ABOUT SUNDAY SESSIONS
Every Sunday between February 5 and May 13, 2012, the MoMA PS1 Performance Dome will house Sunday Sessions, featuring an amalgam of artistic programming—from light, sound, and music installations to lectures by world-renowned scholars and special performances. Various other galleries and rooms inside of the former schoolhouse will also be activated during these weekly sessions.    

Sunday Sessions is supported in part by The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art.
