André Lepecki

Hausradio invited the curator of the IN TRANSIT 09, Resistance of the Object, Andre Lepecki, to discuss his approach to performance work with  Diana McCarty. Lepecki expanded on the term 'Resistance of the Object' which he borrowed from US performance and critical theorist, Fred Moten (and festival participant), to describe a radical practice that is rooted in voicing and performing a resistance to being reduced to an object. For Lepecki, the performances, lectures and installations included in the festival are a way to implement thought in the era of stupidity.

IN TRANSIT June 11-21 at the House of World Cultures. For further information, check out the festival program at: www.hkw.de
