ECOCORE 5 – The Issue of Narcissism – BERLIN LAUNCH @ Motto Berlin

Friday 3rd March from 6-9pm

with a collaborative reading and a performance by Eli Pitegoff and Lukas Hofmann / Saliva: ‘Bringing my phone to its destination’.

ECOCORE is an irregularly published and independent ecology magazine exploring the camouflaged souls of ecology and culture. Published by Alessandro Bava since 2011, its latest release is ECOCORE 5: The Issue of Narcissism, which exploits Narcissus as the symbol of the modern subject. What are we as subjects and why is this question so often explored as a discourse of the body? What is our ‘nature’, and how do we get to it? How do we commune with the external as if it weren’t hostile? How do we cultivate an environment we want to participate in? Our psychic/social ecology meets with the environmental in haemorrhage of inner to outer.

These collected essays, written in Beirut over a period of 10 years between 2006 and 2016, look at the conditions of living under a temporality theorized as the “protracted now” of a civil war, one structurally capable of perpetuating the conditions of its own dominance. This protracted now, these essays argue, remains untranquil in the many unfinished strains of a troubled history that resist falling back into a settled and distant past.

What unites the diverse essays of this book is an investment in the concept of labor, understood as both interminable and his­torical: the labor of min, the labor of the corpse, the labor of near­blindness and the labor of missing. These labors are interminable since they persist in a disinclination to join the various calls for regeneration and resurrection implicit in state-sanctioned and market-driven projects for the reconstruction of Lebanon. They are also historical since they frame this disinclination as an anti-historicist position open to a non-linear conception of memory that attempts to name the many pasts slighted by a forward-looking rush towards better futures.

Together, these labors develop into a critique of hope as a reac­tionary sentiment that numbs collective action in the present and propose that within the folds of war lie moments of political significance that can be recovered and thought through, in order to initiate a livable living built with the unwelcome but necessary knowledge shouldered by unreconciled survivors.

Our relationship with animals is fraught and contradictory: we simultaneously mythologize, venerate, sacrifice, and exploit those who are not of our species. This paradox suggests that our connection with animals might be more complicated, and far richer, than commonly thought, and that the distinction between human and animal is not at all clear-cut. By laying down a novel artistic and theoretical framework, Animality, devised by Jens Hoffmann in conjunction with Marian Goodman Gallery, looks to examine this complex relationship. Written to accompany an exhibition of the same name, it includes more than seventy participants, mostly from the world of art, but also covering film, literature, philosophy, and science.

A fully illustrated catalogue designed by A Practice for Everyday Life.
