Lecture Cuts to Immersion
Marita Tatari
23.01.2023, 18:00, Light Bridge

The world is no longer facing us, the future is no longer our projection. The crises of the present, the colonial violence of the Western claim to universality, the climate catastrophe and the development of technology have shown: no collective self-consciousness can make up the whole of reality as history. The times of the hegemony of the subject are over. There is no whole that encompasses the partial activities, but: each part is infinitely more than the whole. Technology manifests itself as this surplus of self. We are embedded in it. The concern for a common that has been the cause of art (as well as philosophy and politics) must be rethought. Under the conditions of digital immersion in processual networks without beginning and end, it is necessary to open the place of an indeterminable address. The address of a we that escapes us and alienates us, while we are nevertheless with-it: Cuts to immersion precisely where technology becomes the world.
