aesthetic techniques that interrogate

Forensic Architecture, collaborated with the Society of Friends of Halit, at documenta 14.

The results of their research, presented here in a video titled 77sqm_9:26min (2017) after the size of the internet café and the length of time that was the subject of police investigation, show that Temme gave a false testimony.

“Art has been very good in the last decades in problematizing the notion of truth, insisting that narratives are more complex than we’re told, that art is about doubt,” Weizman told a small group of press as he presented the project together with Ayse Gülec, of the Society of Friends of Halit, and the project manager of the forensic investigation, Christina Varvia. “We want to show another possibility of art—one that can confront doubt, and uses aesthetic techniques in order to interrogate.”

How to Live Together

How to Live Together: Novelistic Simulations of Some Everyday Spaces
Roland Barthes, 1976–1977. Translated by Kate Briggs, 2012.
Columbia University Press

How to Live Together …, a series of lectures exploring solitude and the degree of contact necessary for individuals to exist and create at their own pace.

…In this work, Barthes focuses on the concept of “idiorrhythmy,” a productive form of living together in which one recognizes and respects the individual rhythms of the other. He explores this phenomenon through five texts that represent different living spaces and their associated ways of life: Émile Zola’s Pot-Bouille, set in a Parisian apartment building; Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain, which takes place in a sanatorium; André Gide’s La Séquestrée de Poitiers, based on the true story of a woman confined to her bedroom; Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, about a castaway on a remote island; and Pallidius’s Lausiac History, detailing the ascetic lives of the desert fathers.

Immanuel Kant: Aesthetics

Douglas Burnham elucidates Kant’s Critique of Judgment. Kant discussed aesthetic judgement, taste, beauty, claims leading to formalism, aesthetic ideas (leading to conceptualism and to formlessness), aesthetic experience, the sublime, genius and fine art. Also, Kant bridged aesthetics to ethics.

A refresher and/or necessary reading in relation to Duchamp’s Fountain. NSU Art Museum celebrates the centenary of Fountain. Fountain and the stories told about it seem to dramatize Critique of Judgment.

I would separate the valorization of Duchamp from the mythologizing of Fountain.
