Jan Verwoert: Open rehearsals in unlearning Proprietary methods of "(Kn)ow(n)ing thyself"

Sammendrag

A series of 3 monthly talks: The arts inherit an idea of authorship based on conscious ownership: "I had the idea, I knew exactly what to do, I did it, so the work is mine, and I know what it means." My intention, my method, my meaning, my project = my property. In the arts, struggle over gaining recognition is existential. Privilege rears its ugly head when those on top of hierarchies take credit for contributions made by others — whose work is thereby rendered invisible. The fight against exclusion is on, and authorised visibility [visible authorship] is at stake. Yet what if it's not only people but very much also concepts that govern the rites of recognition? If so, the challenge lies in taking on the whole machinery of definitions that decide what legitimately counts as art [authorship], on what terms the legitimation is given, who gets to be the judge, who can claim the right [authority] of being considered an artist [author], and what it means to win that claim.
