Abstract / Summary

The Dark Precursor: International Conference on Deleuze and Artistic Research (DARE 2015) explores possibilities, uses, and appropriations of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s philosophy in the field of Artistic Research. As references to Deleuze’s philosophy, alone or in collaboration with Guattari, have become frequent across the varied expressions of artistic research, the conference aims to identify, trace, and map concepts and practices that connect artistic research projects to their philosophy, both from the scholar’s and from the practitioner’s perspectives. DARE 2015 takes place from 9 to 11 November 2015 in three different venues: the Orpheus Institute, De Bijloke Muziek Zentrum, and the Sphinx cinema, all in walkable distance from one another and within the city centre of Ghent (Belgium).

Presentation & Video screening. "A as in Animal” considers poetics and the cinematic, trans-disciplinary couplings and resonant approaches of text, image and object within art practices. ‘The cat breaks the fruit bowl the cubists spend their time hoping to glue it back together’ . Together with modalities of classification and taxonomy, "A as in Animal” explores performative assemblage(s) of browser doings, apparatus or equipment structurings, rhizomatic unfoldings, non-human historiographies, and philosophies. The film and presentation highlight search actions of retrieval and playback. Panic or anxiety fluctuates across a variety of disciplines including, among others, linguistics, gender studies, social theories and art practices. Keeping fit with Donna Haraway, blue and green screen special effects, spy mission project ‘Acoustic Kitty’ and A comme animal / A as in Animal the eight-hour series of interviews between Gilles Deleuze and Clare Parnet made for French Television in 1983 are central to this critical inquiry.

The work was made for ‘Reading As Art: Turning the Pages of Psychology’. Senate House Library, London.
