manner of encounter

without comments

Meetings, encounters, events, various types of collaboration between people, games, festivals, and places of connectivity, in a word all manner of encounter and relational invention thus represents, today, aesthetics objects likely to be looked as such, with pictures and sculptures regarded here merely as specific cases of production of forms with something other than a simple aesthetic consumption in mind.”
Bourriaud, Nicolas. Relational Aesthetics. Paris: Presses du réel, 2002.

bundle of relations

without comments

“Each particular artwork is a proposal to liven in shared world, and the work of every artist is a bundle of relations with the world, giving rise to other relations, and on and so forth, ad infinitum.”

“dialogical self” goes beyond the self-other dichotomy

without comments

Dialogical self – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dialogical Self Theory (DST) weaves two concepts, self and dialogue, together in such a way that a more profound understanding of the interconnection of self and society is achieved. Usually, the concept of self refers to something “internal,” something that takes place within the mind of the individual person, while dialogue is typically associated with something “external,” that is, processes that take place between people involved in communication. 

The composite concept “dialogical self” goes beyond the self-other dichotomy by infusing the external to the internal and, in reverse, to introduce the internal into the external. As functioning as a “society of mind”[1], the self is populated by a multiplicity of “self-positions” that have the possibility to entertain dialogical relationships with each other.

Intersubjectivity – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In phenomenology, intersubjectivity performs many functions. It allows empathy, which in phenomenology involves experiencing another person as a subject rather than just as an object among objects. In so doing, one experiences oneself as seen by the Other, and the world in general as a shared world instead of one only available to oneself.

Relational Art

without comments

Nicolas Bourriaud explores this notion of relational aesthetics through examples of what he calls Relational Art. According to Bourriaud, Relational Art encompasses “a set of artistic practices which take as
their theoretical and practical point of departure the whole of human relations and their social context, rather than an independent and private space.’

Relational Aesthetics

without comments

A relational artist might, for example, convert a gallery space into a temporary stand for serving coffee, with the addition
of background music, suitable lighting, books to read, and comfortable chairs. The artwork here consists of creating a social
environment in which people come together to participate in a shared activity. Bourriaud claims “the role of artworks is no
longer to form imaginary and utopian realities, but to actually be ways of living and models of action within the existing real,
whatever scale chosen by the artist.” [4]
