Objectivity | Instrument

This theme gives us the chance to present work that deals with 'things' 'objects' 'objectivity' 'instrumentality' and, on a more practical level, musical 'instruments' and so forth. The Objectivity | Instrument theme will be further populated as we release documents from our previous festivals Instal and Kill Your Timid Notion, where "objects" and "instruments" were regularly in play. In the meantime, check out Dawn Kasper' who took both of these notions and played with them in her performance at Episode 2: A Special Form of Darkness.

The paired ‘terms’ of this theme are not synonyms nor are they binary oppositions but words that combine to (hopefully) produce un-rational anti-categories. The aim is to allow (encourage) the archive to be read in ways counter to normative or reductive categories. To allow things in the archive to appear in sometimes unlikely groupings and to resist essentialism.
