Conference | The World of Jaroslav Hasek: The Work and Life of the Great Czech Author (in-person and online)


This conference will draw together leading scholars from various disciplines to reflect on the life, work, and ongoing relevance of the great Czech author, Jaroslav Hasek (1883-1923). Best known for the unfinished long comic narrative, The Adventures of the Good Soldier Svejk in the Great War (1921-1923), Hasek was many things at many moments: dilettante, humorist, satirist, journalist, hoaxer, bohemian, anarchist politician, Bolshevik commandant, and turncoat. His legacy remains unclear. While a household name in the Czech Republic, a key influence on later international fiction (especially on war novels such as Catch 22), and a crucial voice for articulating the role of stupidity in the modern world, for most scholars Hasek appears as a marginal figure on the world stage. He does not fit into familiar currents. Taking place on the 100th anniversary of the publication of the final part of Svejk, as well as of the author's death, the conference will venture new answers to persistent questions about Hasek's legacy: How has Hasek been received differently across the world? What was his relation to global modernism? What does Hasek have to offer to literary theory or philosophy? To what extent does the world we live in today resemble the one to which Hasek gave such a devastating representation?

Gallery Talk | Nor Was This All By Any Means: A Conversation with Pioneering Video Artist Anthony Ramos


An event spotlighting the extraordinary career of Anthony Ramos, among the earliest artists to use video as a tool for mass media critiques and cultural documentation, and to examine media presentations of “truth.” A significant but underrecognized figure in both East and West coast art scenes—he had been a close student of Allan Kaprow at CalArts and a peer of important video figures such as Nam June Paik and Juan Downey—Ramos produced a varied body of work, ranging from deliberately confrontational direct-camera performance to provocative essayistic compositions using appropriated material as a satirical counterpoint. Common themes for Ramos are incisive critiques of American nationalism, racial media representations, and oppressive power dynamics. In 1967, Ramos served an eighteen-month prison sentence for his refusal to register for the Vietnam War draft, an act of conscientious objection with far-reaching resonance throughout the art that followed. On the occasion of Jimmy Carter’s 1977 declaration of amnesty for so-called “draft dodgers,” Ramos produced two major works drawing from his personal experience and the glib disconnect of political showboating. About Media (1977) documents, and deconstructs, Ramos's aired television interview by New York news reporter Gabe Pressman, revealing the construction of mainstream media's slick, obscuring veneer. Decent Men (1977/2013) is built around Ramos's powerful recounting of his prison stay, intercut with vintage cartoons that feature grotesque racial stereotypes alluding to America's long history of racial disenfranchisement through aggressive carceral strategies. Ramos began the work in 1977, but left it unfinished for nearly four decades, until he returned to EAI to finish the work in 2013. Upon his release from prison, Ramos was invited by Kaprow to join CalArts’s inaugural class, where he produced a series of indelible performance tapes, including collaborations with Joe Ray and Lowell Darling. In one tape, Plastic Bag Tie-Up (1972), Ramos and Darling sealed themselves, blindfolded and bound, in clear body-sized bags; the video’s excruciating duration records their struggle to escape. One of the most unique aspects of Ramos’s career is its global scope, capturing significant instances of political struggle and social change across the world. He has traveled widely in Europe, Africa, China and the Middle East, and helped direct the video programming at the American Center in Paris, where he oversaw the television cabling of ten blocks of the city for the first time. He videotaped the end of Portugal's colonial rule of Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau, and Tehran during the 1980 hostage crisis. He completed a number of experimental travelogs, including Nor Was This All By Any Means (1978), a densely-layered collage shot in Gorée, Cape Verde, and Tanzania, and Mao Meets Muddy (1989), documenting his travels to Beijing with painter Frederick Brown in 1988, just before Tiananmen Square. In the late 1980s, Ramos turned to painting as his primary medium, and has since produced a staggering output of vibrantly colored compositions, drawing from techniques of dot-painting and patterning, often produced on canvases constructed by the artist himself. Most recently, in the aftermath of the high-profile killings of Black citizens by law enforcement, among them George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, Ramos’s paintings have once-again taken up his unabashed portrayal of America’s insidious racism. Ramos considers his contemporary work to be a two-dimensional extension of his videos’ cultural and political concerns.

Lecture | The Foundations and Future of Biodesign


Biodesign is an expansive field that lies at the convergence of biotechnology, design, and speculation. This method of making draws inspiration from and collaborates with natural processes and biological organisms. Many designers, scientists, and investors see biodesign as an inevitable progression of the skills and techniques we use to create the objects and materials of our everyday lives. From construction materials to genome editing, biodesign is making an appearance everywhere. Additionally, increased interest in biodesign has come at a time when the convergence of science, technology, and near-intractable problems need multidisciplinary solutions. Many designers believe turning to nature will help humanity to solve some of our most pressing issues. This lecture series will explore the history of biodesign and new developments within the field, discussing its potential to be a leading field of the future. This course is perfect for those interested in learning more about biotechnology, biology, design, new developments in robotics, speculative design, and sustainability. Throughout the course, attendees will learn the techniques and science behind some of the most interesting and innovative design solutions and analyze their potential effects on the everyday systems of the future. Session 1: The Biodesigned Person In this session, attendees will learn about technologies related to the development, health, and everyday life of the bio-designed person. Advancements in genetic engineering, brain-computer interfacing, and transhumanism may help humans transcend their current biological limitations, but at what cost? This session will investigate the technologies, ethics, and societal implications of a future where the Biodesinged person thrives.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: actual size


Artist Ernst Caramelle will lead a discussion on the occasion of his exhibition, actual size, on view at Peter Freeman, Inc. 20 April – 27 May 2023. For over 40 years, Caramelle has engaged wall painting, drawing, photography, video, publishing, and interventions with architecture. No matter the choice of materials, the artist's concerns remain consistent: production, or keeping things going; reproduction, or transforming things through duplicating and publishing; and perception, or finding the most improbable things through direct observation. Ernst Caramelle sets in motion a steady approach to making and observing. Even when keeping things to their actual size, the artist’s oeuvre is an ode to the process: shifting perception and form by keeping open to changes of direction.

Dance Performance | Dance on Film: One & One Other (online thru Apr 24)


In a bizarre play between reality and absurdist fantasy, One & One Other is a dance film offering a window into the secret world that exists on the fringes of our late-night consciousness. At the heart of the film is the mind’s ability to transport us away from the mundane, habitual rhythm of life into the incongruous realm of our imagination; a place that oscillates between the fantastic and the harrowing. One & One Other is Shawn Fitzgerald Ahern and Emilie Leriche’s fifth collaboration together, driven by a shared ambition to push the boundaries of film and dance and uncover how the two media might meet, intersect, and disrupt each other.
