Curator’s Talk: Advance through RetreatMay 10, 2014 Saturday 19:00 - 21:00

  • This talk by the curator of the exhibition “Advance through Retreat”proposes a different angle to look at tradition and traditional media of art. It sets out to present artistic positions using traditional media and procedures, such as divination, the game, gambling and traditional strategies—for instance, “advance through retreat”—in order to develop autonomous languages that express positions of resistance to the assimilating tendency and the power structures generated and maintained by the lingua franca. "Advance through Retreat" attempts to show how, in specific historical moments, the use of or the retreat into tradition is employed as an efficient strategy of resistance.
