Stateless Mind #3
A WORKSHOP led by
DALIDA MARIA BENFIELD,
RODRIGO OCHIGAME and
with the collaboration of KATHERINE YE
In this performative and interactive workshop, we explore the “in-betweenness” of “art” across different geo-political contexts. Using Rodrigo Ochigame’s and Katherine Ye’s software project, “Search Engine,” which simultaneously displays the Google search term results from different national contexts, we will collaborate with participants to search for different artworks, artists, and art-related terms. In the process, we will critically compare, situate, and redefine “art,” and map, remap, and unmap its online archive. The results will be a performance and a visual collage that will be documented and published digitally and, in a print, ‘zine.

DE/ARCHIVE: Animating, De/Counter-Archiving, and Mobilizing Knowledge and Memories
How can we think differently about, and re-route the pathways, homes, and communities of our knowledge and memories? Our knowledge and memories may or may not be in the "official archive." We can then imagine and create new spaces for the archiving of knowledge and memory. But our knowledge and memories that are in the "official archive" can also be liberated; we can be in conversation with them, listening to and reading between the lines of these archived memories, often stolen; to give them new lives, times, and spaces. Through this, we can understand how "official" archives can make absent whole categories of knowledge and memory. We can also locate, curate, and materialize memories that lie beyond the purview of existing archives, and imagine and create new homes, communities, and routes of travel for them. In this talk, Dalida will discuss several archive projects that she is directing with the Center for Arts, Design, and Social Research, including DE/ARCHIVE, ARCHIPELAGO: MAP(S) OF THE MOVING WORLD, and the MIGRATORY TIMES AND SPACES projects.
