Arika – Episode 10: A Means Without End – DAY 2



Dates and times

Thursday 21 November 2019
1:00PM - 10:30PM

Complex ways of understanding our complex times. Maths & Poetics. Gesture & Physics. Collectivist Struggle & Desire. 

Day 2 of 5 days of performances, discussions, screenings and study sessions about how the art and thought of collectivist desires, the complex flow of contemporary maths and the counterintuitive realities of particle physics help us grow the capacity to be one another’s means without end. 

Jay Bernard | boychild | Mijke van der Drift | Denise Ferreira da Silva | James Goodwin | Stefano Harney | Laura Harris | Nathaniel Mackey | Alexander Moll | Fred Moten | Arjuna Neuman | Nat Raha | Nisha Ramayya | Wu Tsang | Ueinzz | Jackie Wang | Fernando Zalamea

Visit the Arika website for the full schedule and detailed programme information.

1 – 3.30pm
Corpus Infinitum - Denise Ferreira da Silva 

Do ideas emerging from particle physics help to re-think of blackness as a mode of life in which it’s possible to practice difference without separation? 

4 - 6pm
Entangling history, phenomenology, metaphysics, culture, and mathematics: the model RTSK - Fernando Zalamea 
Profound mathematical ideas for romantics, to help us linger in the difference we share. Fernando is going to help us think about mathematical ideas as they can structure our worldviews; ways of thinking about the world that lots of us might already hold, but just didn’t ever think about in terms of maths before.

7 – 8pm 
Gravitational Feel: Opening - Fred Moten & Wu Tsang 
Gravitational Feel is an engine for intensifying the differentiation of our entanglement, which you continually reprogramme in the mutual rub, shift and lap of its sonic, wooden, steel, textile and human material.

8 – 9pm
In the Sign of Jonah: Around Moby-Dick - Laura Harris & Fernando Zalamea
DISCUSSION (Captioned)
“The miracle of Herman Melville is this: that a hundred years ago in Moby Dick…he painted a picture of the world in which we live, which is to this day unsurpassed.” -  C. L. R. James

9.30 – 10.30pm
Mobedique Hors Acvé – Ueinzz
FILM SCREENING (English & Portuguese, with and without subtitles or translation)
A community of those without community, for a community to come. A schizo-scenic video-collage of the disturbing ‘normality’ of Moby Dick.

Most events at the Episode will have live Captioning, also known as Speech to Text Reporting (STTR). These events are noted as Captioned.

If you would like to attend any events and require BSL interpretation Arika will try to make that happen. Please contact Arika, with as much notice as possible on to arrange.

Content Notes: This Episode will involve improvised conversations and events whose content cannot be predicted. There could be topics or images that come up that some might find upsetting. We’ll make announcements before events, where appropriate. If you have any questions or concerns – speak to staff at the Arika Desk.

The Episode will host a Quiet Space a space for anyone who needs to chill out a bit, relax and take time out from the events and the bustle.
