OUR LITERAL SPEED
DER PERFORMATIVE DISKURS

Exhibition: 29.02. – 25.05.2008

»OUR LITERAL SPEED« manifests the imperatives that materialize the  
theoretical and the pedagogical. No longer can we interpret forms of  
academic and artistic professionalism as neutral, abstract  
backgrounds to the aesthetic and performative. These activities have  
produced their own distinctive surfaces and materials: the �? 
aesthetic�? has become discursive and �?discourse�? has become  
aesthetic.
Rather than a series of academic lectures, OUR LITERAL SPEED is  
imagined as a kind of �?media pop opera�? or a �?pedagogical  
concept album,�? implying fluid and/or jagged transitions among  
scholarly presentations, panel discussions, artist"s talks,  
performances, and an art exhibition within an academic conference.  
These emerging, hybrid forms demand a synthesis of collective  
activity ("OUR"), a self-reflexive examination of art history and its  
constitutive technologies ("LITERAL"), and an intense concern for the  
pace and texture of our movement through institutional mediation  
("SPEED"). The project offers a temporary discursive laboratory in  
which artists and curators, art historians and media theorists can  
investigate non-formulaic, experientially vibrant and theoretically  
precise responses to the modes of distribution, consumption and  
circulation that drive contemporary art.
»OUR LITERAL SPEED« will be continued with further conference-events  
at the University of Chicago (2009), and at The Getty Research  
Institute, Los Angeles (2010).

In cooperation with the University of Chicago and The Getty Research  
Institute, Los Angeles.
