Talk: Branden W. Joseph – MOTTO@WIELS – 18.01.2013 (7pm)

In his book Random Order, Branden W. Joseph provides a penetrating analysis of the most important works in the production of Robert Rauschenberg during the 1950s and 1960s, by placing them in the context of the American neo-avant-garde and with particular emphasis on the relationship that the artist had with the composer John Cage.

Random Order offers a penetrating analysis of the major works of Rauschenberg, a redefinition of the paradigm of neo-avant-garde as a reflection on postmodern subjectivity.

Branden W. Joseph teaches modern and contemporary art at Columbia University (New York) and is one of the founders of the journal Grey Room.

A Toast to the Ghost, the Host, Michael Van den Abeele.

RENDER ME REAL. Millions of computers are rendering in the night; rendering everything more real, more realistic; rendering a new generation of extraterrestrials looking more real that the ones before; a new generation of dinosaurs, now feathered but covered in fur soon enough, if current rendering is done; of evil midget-like creatures; of astonishing landscapes covered with paramount super-structures and populated by the millions; a new generation of things as yet indescribable, but imperatively more real and convincing than before. The real is chased after like a deer; like the hunter that changed into a deer, now chased by his own dogs…

Includes a conversation between Michael Van den Abeele and Dennis Cooper.

Published on the occasion of Un-Scene II (exposition June 2012) at Wiels, Centre for Contemporary Art.
