Kettle’s Yard/Tate Britain Conference

Kettle’s Yard is closed today, so I’ll have to wait until the weekend to visit the Sybille Berger exhibition.

On Saturday there is a webcast of a conference at the Tate Britain called “Spheres of Action: Art and Politics” which I want to be in for. That’s from 10am–5.30pm.

Speakers:

Peter Sloterdijk, Professor of Philosophy and Rector of the School of Fine Arts, Karlsruhe, and author of Critique of Cynical Reason (Edition Suhrkamp, 1983), Rules for the People Park (Suhrkamp Verlag KG, 1999) and Spheres (Suhrkamp Verlag, 1998)

Peter Weibel, Director of the Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, and author of Fast Forward: Media Art (Ingvild Goetz, 2004) and The Open Work, 1964–1979 (Hatje Cantz, 2005)

Boris Groys, Professor at the School of Fine Arts, Karlsruhe and author of Stalin’s Total Work of Art (Hanser, 1988) and Ilya Kabakov (Phaidon Press, 1998).

Chairs:

Eric Alliez, Senior Research Fellow at University of Paris IV

Peter Osborne, Professor of Modern European Philosophy at Middlesex University.

I’m certain that I won’t last for the whole thing. I’ll try and see if I can record it. That means I’ll be visiting Kettle’s Yard sometime on Saturday 10 or Sunday 11.
