In her numerous exhibitions, Caroline Christov-Bakargiev has long sought to defy the distinction between the contemporary and non-contemporary, basing her projects on forms of commitment to imagination as a space of politics and aesthetics. Working with a diverse set of artists from across the world, Christov-Bakargiev’s projects have highlighted artistic procedures that question the nature and form of modernity, as well as the nature of art’s engagement into the world. Her exhibitions exemplify an expanded query into the potentiality of artistic research, in which works, or forms of imagination, “explore commitment, matter, things, embodiment, and active living in connection with, yet not subordinated to, theory.”
In her lecture at The Cooper Union, Christov-Bakargiev will reflect on the numerous ideas, practices, actions and events that were developed in the exhibition and its publications through the observation of how temporality can articulate spaces, our relationship with time generally, and issues of collapse and recovery. The lecture will be followed by a debate with participating artists Mariam Ghani, Joan Jonas and Michael Rakowitz.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Seats are limited and RSVP is required.
