[Nettime-ro] Undercurrents / On Mutation (post-Cold War and new order)_BAK/Utrecht

concerning war 

Undercurrents / On Mutation (post-Cold War and new order)
A series of weekly lectures, conversations, and workshops by artists and theorists on the underlying forces behind the current state 
of warfare. Undercurrents is part of Concerning War, a multi-faceted project on the issue of how war is reflected upon in 
contemporary artistic practice. 

10 December 2005 at 16.00 hrs at BAK, basis voor actuele kunst with:

Viktor Misiano, art critic/curator, Moscow,
Sean Snyder, artist, Berlin,
and YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES, artists' collective, Seoul

In what respect did the paradigm of war transform in recent decades? From "traditional" war as an armed conflict between 
sovereign nation-states, to Cold War as a competition and tension kept alive by an ongoing mutual anticipation of potential full-
scale military assault by ideologically opposing blocks of states, into the current form, not isolated in space or time, but as a 
constant potentiality everywhere and anytime? Taking the Cold War as a comparative parameter to measure how war has been 
altered in recent history, and how it has consequently infiltrated social structures and the individual, Moscow-based art critic and 
curator Viktor Misiano, American artist Sean Snyder, and Korean artists-collective YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES 
respond to these "new" conditions and consider how artistic practices can respond to and resist these developments.
