My dialogue with him revolves around issues such as the relationship between music and meaning, the nature of meaning in music, and the audience’s musical experience. In his music, his main priority is to build a mutual bound with his audience as every other possible influence is conditioned to this bound. One of the main interests of the artist is the moments in music that he calls “happenings”,occurring in the process of  creating a musical piece and go beyond planned technical considerations and control-based techniques of making music.

Theater as a Mode of Dissent  / [FA]  تئاتر هنر معترض

Theater as a Mode of Dissent

Mohammad Yaghoubi is a multi-award-winning playwright, director, screenwriter, and theater instructor. He is also  the co-founder of Nowadays Theater which is a non-profit theater company in Toronto, Canada. In this podcast, our conversation revolves around the issue of theater and what Yaghoubi believes is the inherent correlation of theater with politics, ethics, truth, and freedom. Inspired by Greek tragedies which were heavily dependent on philosophy and litrature as their indispensable attributes, Yaghoubi contributes to a theater where the human situation is taken seriously, a form of theater that abstains to surrender to pure aesthetic inclinations. Having been disappointed by those thinkers, such as Russian theater practitioner Konstantin Stanislavsky, who consider theater as an autonomous form of art detached from philosophy, politics, and society, Yaghoubi characterizes theater as a mode of dissent. In this sense, Mohammad Yaghoubi recognizes theater as an inherently socio-political phenomenon which casts doubt over apparently unquestionable axiomatic principles which have constructed social norms and shaped our understanding of the truth. Through engaging in theater either as a playwright or director, Yaghoubi attempts to raise questions about claimed eternal truths and so-called realities imposed upon the individual. His primary concern as a playwright is to lighten the shoulders of his audiences of the burden of these forced truths and historically accumulated narrations.

 Fakugesi Digital Art Residency - Nathan Gates

Nathan Gates is an artist currently based in Johannesburg. He holds a Master’s degree in Digital Arts from The University of The Witwatersrand where he also lectures part-time. His work focuses on the domestication of knowledge brought in part by the growing ubiquity of digital technologies and its accompanying technological modes of thinking.

In his practice he explores the relationship between “Agency” and “Structure” as this tension operates in everyday life, critically examining the nature of one’s capacity to act in a highly organized environments, both politically and socially. Though various modes of physical interrogation he examines to what degree agency (the ability to choose to act and be), is indebted to its fabricated physical and social environment and to what extent it can be considered autonomy vs. adaptation or making the most of circumstance. In a process based practice often incorporating found objects, ideas and gestures all as equal counterparts, he aims at opening up modes of mindful experimentation and knowledgeability that for the most part seek to make productive use of error and failure.
As Fak’ugesi Resident Gates investigated the wireless networks and their presence as public space. Through the residency Gates produced work that interogated the role of network names as a site for public interactivity, giving agency and control to the public through these names and their use. In this podcast she speaks to residency curator Tegan Bristow about his work and experiences on the residency.

The Persian myth of Zarvan / [FA] اسطوره ي زروان

This podcast is a conversation with contemporary Iranian sculptor Aban Salehi regarding her award-winning sculpture “Zarvan” in the Versus Sculpture Festival 2015 in Tehran. By referring to the ancient Persian myth of Zarvan, god of time in ancient Persian deities,  Aban Salehi intends to criticize the long-held foundations of viewing the world through good and evil forces as a dominant narrative of Iranian culture which leaves no room for shades of grey.  In Persian mythological texts,  Zarvan is a divine being who engendered equal-but-opposite twins, Ahura Mazda and Angra Mainyu which are characterized as the symbols of good and evil in the universe. Based on ancient mythology, these two non-reconciliatory forces of good and evil are the driving forces of the universe eternally engaged in an endless battle. The divinity Zarvan is also recognized  as the god of eternal time and space who is a transcendental being emancipated from temporal passionate desires in Persian Mythic narratives. Aban Salehi’s black and white sculpture “Zarvan,” symbolizes the eternally abysmal fight between the forces of light and darkness, Ahura Mazda and Angra Mainyu. Through an intertwined assimilation of demoniacal black and white shapes illuminated by an external light in her sculpture, Aban Salehi attempts to challenge what she believes is the Iranian society’s prevalent dichotomous understanding of the world which has become even more bifurcated as a result of the current post-revolutionary politics of the country. Through contemporizing a deep-rooted mythical belief in the form of a sculpture, Aban Salehi aims to to cast doubt over her society’s cemented axiomatic principles grounded in dichotomous mythical and historical accounts of what the nature of truth and reality is. Salehi’s personal experience as a child viewing a public execution in Isfahan, Iran has immensely contributed to the young sculptor’s artistic perspective.

 Fakugesi Digital Art Residency- Ling Tan

In this episode Tegan Bristow interviews Fak’ugesi Resident Ling Tan.

Short Description
A festival residency which hosted three disciplines hardware (maker), software and arts with the Fak’ugesi Digital Africa Festival in Johannesburg South Africa. Residents comprised of two artists from the UK, Ling Tand and Kasia Molga, and two artists from South Africa, Nathan Gates and Jepchumba. Following the Fak’ugesi Festival, residents present outcomes in a residency exchange at Watermans in London in November 2015.

Residency Theme

The residency is developed in extension of the Fak’ugesi Digital Africa Festival, and the festival itself is about not only the convergence of technology, art and culture, but also the development of Braamfontien in Johannesburg as a new hub for digital media and technology cultures evolving from a vibrant community of young creatives living and working in the area. The residency is an invitation to respond to the environment by exploring it as it stands and to create speculative and digital public engagement in response to this theme: “Futurist Visions of Johannesburg / City: uncovering place and space, physical and virtual responses to ‘now’ for socio-cultural technologies of the future.”

Working together, sharing insights and knowledge while engaging the city and its technology cultures, we invited the residents to bring into being a speculative technological-engagement that asks questions of a futuristic Johannesburg / City.

Art and its emancipatory dimensions/ [FA] هنر و ابعاد رهایی بخش آن

Gholamreza Jamshid Moradian is a renowned Iranian sculptor and an authority in wooden sculpture. He has participated in a vast variety of both national and international symposiums and biennales across the world. In 2008, he won the Excellence Award in an Olympic landscape sculpture contest in China.

In this conversation, Jamshid Moradian speaks with me about his ontological approach to art as a transcendental phenomenon, the necessity of art in today’s hectic modern life, the problem of consumerism in the realm of the arts, and touches upon why art should keep pace with the spirit of the age. Regarding the existential necessity of art in today’s conflict-driven world, Jamshid Moradin contends that art has a potential to shed light on catastrophic occurrences around us. Such illumination contributes to the interpretation of such tragic events through evoking and touching upon both the senses and the mental state of art’s audiences. Indeed, art has a capacity to cast doubt over society's cemented axiomatic principles grounded in historical biases that contribute to violence, and can influence the socially-constructed psychological domain of audiences, hence contributing to a deeper understanding of the world and sources of contention.

Vis and Ramin Performance: Ancient Persian Love Story/ [FA] پرفورمنس ویس و رامین

This podcast is a conversation with Iranian conceptual artist and sculptor Ramin Etemadi-Bozorg regarding his performance titled “Vis and Ramin” in Tehran’s Museum of Contemporary Art. By referring to the ancient Persian love story of Vis and Ramin, Etemadi-Bozorg intends to contemporize a mythical-romantic narrative about passionate love composed by 11th century classical Persian poet Fakhruddin As'ad Gurgani.The artist attempts to relate the romantic epic to the present-day context of Iran. In doing so, Ramin Etemadi-Bozorg attempts to set the ground for today’s audiences to correspond with the world of myths through taking an active role in his performance, instead of being idle observers. It seems, in Etemadi’s performance, the modern dichotomous understanding of logos versus mythos(myth), which is considered as an antagonistic and non-reconciliatory way of thinking has been challenged, since he makes a reconciliation between the world of myth and today’s logo-enteric tendency of modern audiences.

بدن جولانگاه قدرت  / Your Body is a Battleground of power

 

بدن تو جولانگاه قدرت

بدنهای عوروعریان ،عاری از هرگونه  عناصر زیباشناختی جنسی، جنسیت را که ساختارها به صورت یک عارضه،بر بدنش داغ کردند را فریاد می زنند. فیگورها ادعای پس گرفتن حق پایمال شده ی تاریخی خود، از گذشتگان را ندارند بلکه اعاده حیثیت می کنند از حق انسان زیستن در بدنی جنسیت زدا. بدنی جنسیت زدا به این معنا که بر تمام بستر های معنی ساز به مفاهیم خط کشی ها  و تبعیض های جنسی کاذب مهر ابطال بزند و معیارهای جنسی  به معیارهای انسانی مبدل گردد.

آثار از مخاطب طلب می کند ،تحمل کند شرم دیدن،تقلیل دادن شرف وهستی انسانی،تحت عنوانزن به یک حفره واندام جنسی در جامعه . بدنهای زنان به دور از هر نوع حاشیه وابهام ،به صورت مخاطب می کوبند نگاه واقعیتی را که همه نا خواسته و ندانسته در آن بی انسان شدیم.

سخن من بر سر انکار،ستایش یا برجسته سازی تفاوتهای جنسی نیست، سخن من بر سر نقد دیدگاه ابزاری وتبعیض    امیز جنسی از هر نوع  وشکلش است

Shadi Moosavi is a contemporary Iranian artist. She deals with issues of sexuality, body ,and identity in her paintings. The distinguishing characteristic of her works is their emphasis on sexualized human bodies attempting to visually reveal how socio-political power relationships create and consolidate the common and fixed sexual stereotypes and sexually arranged roles of our times. Through assimilation of sexual organs in a single blood-stained body, Shadi Moosavi defines gender and sexuality as a social construction contributing to the core of political power in order to maintain dominance over women’s bodies and minds. In her statement about her paintings she says:

“The women’s body, lacking all the elements of sexual beauty, calls out the sexuality as an excrescence being scorched on the corps. The figures do not claim their trampled historical right from the ancestors; instead claim for their identity. The right of living likes a real human from the body detached from the sexuality; meaning that it eliminates all the foundations that create meaning in concept of rules and regulations and the pseudo-discriminations against the genders. And transform the sexual criteria’s to humanitarian ones.

The works ask the viewers to survive the taboo of looking at them, alleviating the honor and the being of human being in the name of “woman” to a “ sexual organ” in the society. Women’s body away from elaboration and ambiguity, brings a fact in front of the viewer’s face, we have turned inhuman even inadvertently.”

Researchers have attempted to tap into the rich, cultural environments contained deep within the realms of the internet, but a lot of topics, unfortunately, still remain undiscussed. Such topics are never given the chance to surface, either because they are too difficult to quantify with empirical research, too noveau and risky to produce solid results, or too unknown of a territory to even begin discussing.

In this second half of this first episode of SRS Business, we continue to discuss relatively ostracised issues online, such as the psychology of gender, gender stereotypes and role expectations. We present: Girls on the Internet (Part 2)- Girl Gamers.

Performance et Performativité [FR]

Chercheur en médecine, commissaire et critique d’art, Jens Hauser présente l’exposition ‘WetWare’ qu’il a organisé avec David Familian pour le Beall Center à UC Irvine. Rappelant les écrits de Chris Salter, il y fait l'état d’un basculement de l’art de la performance à la performativité s’enracinant dans la théorie du discours (langage), la théorie du genre (corps construits),  l’anthropologie (comme méthode d’inspection), et les sciences performatives (sociologie des sciences). Ces changements d'échelles, d’espaces, d'écologies resituent le corps sur un plan mésoscopique, a la fois objet et sujet, y compris dans le non-vivant. La microperformativité a pour but de relocaliser les actions ou fonctions à l'intérieur de ce corps afin d’aller au corps microscopique - séquences génétiques, molécules, organes...

We’ve Always Been Biohackers [ENG]

In the first part of the podcast, art curator and media studies scholar Jens Hauser, interviewed by Roger Malina and Yvan Tina address the question of staging aliveness. Hauser argues that, between life in silico and life in labs, we’re witnessing the  animation of the technological, on one side, and the technologization of the animated on the other. Opposing Biomediality to communication media, the critic returns to the in-betweeness space of the medium. Through the scales of performance and performativity - mesoscopic definitions of the human body - macroscopic scales of molecular biopolitic , a gallery of spaces, ecologies and processes sets the stage for energetic theaters.

Conducted by Josh Brumett and Alex Garcia Topete, this last part of the interview explores the notion of greenness as it relates to art history. The most anthropocentric of all colours, art curator Jens Hauser says , green stands for nature, has something related to growth and constitute a large part of our visual spectrum. From night visual devices to first computer screens, green operates like a technical colour. While being the most toxic colour when it comes to the production of its particles and its pigments, green is used as an attempt to ‘green’ life itself, language, technology, and chemistry. Using Jun Takita’s transgenic mouss sculpture, and Cohen Van Balen's Pigeon D'or as biofacts - that is to say as living system equivalent to the artefact - Jens Hauser reveals how these artworks point to the intervention of human life.To what degree a bioartist has to take into account what will take place in the world?

A Song for the Absentees [ENG]

'A Song for the Absentees' is an interactive sound installation where participants' voice trigger various sounds of animals that are endangered. Three microphones and speakers are dispersed throughout the space. Microphones constantly capture sounds that participants generated, and the frequency (pitch) of generated sound is constantly analyzed in computer software, and finally corresponding sound files of endangered species are triggered. The triggering action can be done both unconsciously and consciously by the participants inside the installation space. These sound files are licensed through and achieved at Macaulay Library of Cornell University which is the largest database of biodiversity audio and video recordings. This sound art installation were once installed in open deck public space at an art event that was held in July, 2015, in order to test and see how random audiences respond to the piece.

Designing the Mundane, Live Your Light, Chickens Unite! [ENG]

Collin Steinmetz of the Ilumi lighting company, www.ilumi.com, discusses with Cassini Nazir of the ArtSciLab at UT Dallas the disruptive technologies in the lighting industry. Ilumi uses the motto “Live Your Light” to make the point that we underestimate the impact of lighting design on individuals. Ilumi sells a number of products for consumers and companies that allows individuals to tailor their lighting environment to their own specific biological rhythms and reactions to light. Cassini Nazir brings in the idea of “Designing the Mundane” that points out that many aspects of our life can be designed but are often neglected. Steinmetz ends with the most unexpected customer Ilumi has had: a chicken farmer who wanted to design the lighting to maximize egg laying --- and indeed the they worked using the ‘sunrise’ bulb to wake the chickens up earlier and the Circadian lightbulb to extend the egg laying period.

The Lumen Life - Reexamining the Relationship Between People and Lighting [ENG]

Light is a powerful force that often seems to fall into the background of our day-to-day lives. It tells us when to wake and when to sleep. It creates atmosphere and mood. It gives focus and function. It entertains and envelops. So why is control of lighting normally limited to on and off? As both the LED lighting and the connect home industries continue to see exponential growth, we find it increasingly important to examine how people interact with light, how light interacts with them, and what can be done to help people think about an ordinary item in an extraordinary way.

[FA]نمایشنامه ی خانه/  Theatrical Performance “Home”

This podcast is a conversation with contemporary Iranian Director Kiamoars Moradi regarding his recent theatrical performance “Home” here in Dallas, Texas. As a professional theater director, Kiomars Moradi deploys the magical realism genre in which magical elements blend with well-known contemporary issues of Iran to allow a deeper understanding of the complex realities of the Iranian society, a society caught between modernity, tradition and revolutionary values. The magical realism genre is also an effective tool for Moradi to overcome and dodge Iran’s state-censorship through a more politically subtle genre. Kiomars Moradi’s Home narrates current social tensions, cultural cleavages and economic difficulties of the Iranian society through the story of a middle class family in the capital city of Tehran. Home displays a striking and vivid depiction of how family bonds in the Iranian society have been deeply influenced and harmed by a prevalent cultural, ideological and religious gap between two generations of Iranian parents and children. The parents belong to Iran’s 1979 revolutionary-era followed immediately by the eight year 1980 Iran-Iraq War, and the kids are the current generation of Iranians born after these turbulent times of ideology and warfare propaganda.
