Public Program:
Special guest Albert Serra: Part of a Proposition by Chus Martinez: aren't we living in a world where headless men only desire decapitated women?
January 29 2011

Chus Martinez’s Proposition explores the notion of nonsense, or the wisdom of uncertainty. Nonsense is reflects the need to produce osmosis between knowledges of very different natures. It aims towards the generation of communicative forms of meaning as the key to future discoveries. Today, the filmmaker Albert Serra joins Martinez to investigate these ideas further. Propositions is a public forum that explores ideas in development. Each two-day seminar introduces a topic of current investigation in an invited speaker’s own artistic or intellectual practice. Over the course of a seminar session, these developing ideas are responded to, researched, and discussed to propel them forward in unique ways. This month’s Proposition is by Chus Martinez. Albert Serra joins Martinez on Saturday, January 29 for research and response.
