What is a Dispositif

Or better that we must find now better ways in order to profane. If to profane means to return to common use of man that which has been separated to the sphere of the sacred or of consumption or spectator we could say that the capitalist religion in its extreme phase or stage is created something absolutely unprofitable, which can never be given back to use.

So I have to stop here in order to respect our limit of time. Let me just say, in a kind of semi-ironic, or better semi-paraodic, but finally serious statement, that the profanation of the unprofitable is the political task of the coming generation.

Media and Animals

Parikka’s Insect Media

Fuller’s Art for Animals

  • Gabriel von Max – The Jury of Apes
  • Pliny the Elder’s Natural History
    • Trompe l’oeil technique competition
    • Zeuxis vs Parrhasius
    • Parrhasius – reveals his painting from beneath a curtain to reveal a painting – a still life so good that birds flock to it
    • Zeuxis – is asked to remove the curtain from his painting, but his paintain is a painting of a curtain – that has tricked everyone
  • Art for animals is not art which uses, represents or depicts animals – nor it is ‘animal enclosures’, e.g.: Zoo projects by architects
  • Durational performances with animals also ‘sit outside the present text’
  • Shigeru Watanabe’s research – pigeons could learn to distinguish between works by Monet and Picasso “and carry over this capacity for distinction to categorically related art by Cézanne and Braque”

Flusser’s Vampyroteuthis infernalis
