Keynote Speaker: Jörg Heiser

Free admission

Time: 14:00 – 15:30

Venue: Conference Room, Inside-Out Art Museum

Together with Cristina Ricupero and Gahee Park, Jörg Heiser co-curates the Busan Biennale 2018 which is themed around artistic perspectives onto divided territories. Torn apart are not only territories – nations, or formerly ethnically connected regions, usually by war, colonization and/or hostile estrangement – but also, importantly, psyches. What kind of sentiments and conditionings does the splitting of territories induce in people’s minds in general, and artistic minds specifically? Vice versa, what kinds of mindsets induce the splitting in the first place?

 

The biennale – the underlying theme of which is explained in this talk – approaches these questions through the lens of looking at Cold War mythology, and through Science Fiction scenarios. The psycho-mapping of split territories means to ask how the political, economic, and military powers have created ways to inhabit the world, and vice versa, how these ways either reinforce or erode these territorial divisions. What are the struggles resulting from this relationship between psyche and territory, individual and community or people?
