Vorspiel / Transmediale & CTM 2017 and Peninsula present:
An installation by Simone Bertugno invited by Cristiano Cesolari.
In recent decades, with the advent of the new media, human thought has evolved into unexplored fields; and today that this medium has been absorbed into people’s daily life, we can see some of its social products. Unfortunately, the first perception is that its use has had a negative effect on everyday life: you get the impression that, instead of evolution, it has generated a mental decline that has made the mass like sheep. Our responsibility was therefore not to be active against this attitude, having suffered and accepted silently.
It is for this reason that, before the process becomes irreversible, we have to embrace the role of action and to start planting the seeds which will be used to stimulate the conscience to change.
It is in this context that NON-CONFERENCE assumes its meaning. A NON-CONFERENCE for “not talking about” ideologies, utopias and ‘-isms’ from the last century and the current one, through sounds which produce a ‘soup’ of sense and meaning, about the human being, the living, the animus/anima, the body, the class struggle, racism. An attempt to codify, through non-sense, our present reality, not understandable in many respects but the heir of a split original thinking. A new process to regenerate and to make it reborn, perhaps to create a new critical vision, a new militancy, a primary chaos.
