What I Did Today: 11/16/05

Bored at the Death Star I ventured out today:

Somehow I missed out on the  Mike Kelley gene  because I've never thought much of his work even though I do admit to a bit of sympathy for what he tries to do. Alas, there's no sparks, not even in the acres and acres of work now at Gagosian in Chelsea titled "Day is Done". I do admit that he's got the whole schizophrenic market cornered but others do it much more economically. And what's with the ridiculous report on the opening by David Rimanelli on the Artforum site:

Dialogue with the Philosopher Toni Negri

categories:

LINK

The Italian philosopher Toni Negri analyzes the United States’ invasion of Iraq as a “defeat.” He spoke to Pagina/12 from the recuperated Hotel Bauen, expounding an auspicious perspective for Latin America and criticizing the “traditional” European left.

The Italian philosopher and militant Toni Negri is in Argentina for a second time. He is arriving from a trip to Chile and is now headed to Brazil. After having launched a worldwide polemic with his book Empire, about the end of the age of classical imperialism, he is now convinced that we find ourselves in an anomalous period for Latin America because it has finally ceased to be “the back porch” of the United States. From the Argentine crisis in 2001 to the current crisis in Brazil, passing through the failed coup in Venezuela and the Andean revolts, Negri reads a profound continental change capable of giving way to a multilateralism that will dispute North American pretensions toward an imperialist sovereignty. In his dialogue with Pagina/12, he insists that Latin America is further along than Europe with regard to its ability to think the relation between social movements and governments through the experimentation of a democratic radicalism.


Calit2

categories:

(Ricardo Dominguez writes to correct the misquote at the end of this article:

The psuedo quote/statement below I never made or even hinted at:

*Mr. Dominguez, the political activist and actor, says he believes that Calit2 can deliver partly by bringing society closer to his artistic ideal of unifying humans with representations of humans in cyberspace.*

What I did tell the reporter was:"The practice of ECD by EDT was an attempt to connect bodies protesting on the streets and data bodies protesting on-line." Which to me is quiet different than the statement (attributed to me) in the article.)
