Division of Labor - Denis Beaubois

Posted by Gabrielle Senza on February 23, 2018 at 0:36 0 Comments

I just came across Denis Beaubois, an Australian multidisciplinary artist whose work, Currency - Division of Labor might be of interest to researchers here.

It is a series of video/performance works that use the division of labor model in capitalism as a structural tool for performance.

From his website:

Laruelle and Performative Philosophy


Laruelle and Performative Philosophy

This group looks at the work of François Laruelle and its allied notion of non-standard philosophy. Specifically, it examines non-philosophies of all types as forms of performative thought, as well as Performance in particular as a non-standard philosophy.

This looks good for us -

Abandoned Projectors: A Pavilion Forum
Leeds Art Gallery
8 November, 11 am - 5 pm

Pavilion is exploring the phenomenon and potential of an alternate, uncomprehending and analytical ‘look’ that is at play in a number of current art practices. Lucy Skaer's artwork Film for an Abandoned Projector (Pavilion, 2011), is a removed look at the once animated mechanisms of analogue film. Pamela Rosenkranz takes a similarly blank, curious, but non-participatory look at the aesthetic concept of the sublime, as described by Robin Mackay in his paper, Art and the Practice of Non-Philosophy (Pavilion, 2012). Briony Fer's paper, From Glass Eye to Cat's Eye articulates a resistant, corporeal and polemical look (Pavilion, 2011). 

A cluster of artists and thinkers will gather for a day of presentations, screenings and discussions anchored by this issue. Melvin Moti, Gintaras Didziapetris, Jonas Zakaitis and Aurime Aleksandraviciute will contribute. Anthony Paul Smith will present a new essay by French philosopher François Laruelle: Photo-Fiction: A Non-Standard Aesthetics. Screenings of Rosa Barba's The Long Road and Lucy Skaer's The Margins of July will be included. The forum aims to open up questions to form the basis of a set of future projects and collaborations with Leeds Art Gallery.

Hanging out at Univocal Books this week! Tonight Drew Burk will be leading an introduction to Laruelle at the Midway Gallery

@JM, thanks very much.

@BW - no need to book tickets for lecture on Dec 10 - just come early. But you do need to reserve a (free) place for workshop on Dec 11 - just email me.



Comment by Bryony White on October 18, 2012 at 12:20

Hello all,


I was wondering whether you have to book tickets for the Laruelle talk at the London Graduate School/how you can book tickets? I have looked everywhere online and can't seem to find out how.

Comment by Drew S. Burk on October 3, 2012 at 4:54

Tis correct! F. Laruelle will be lecturing in NYC on the evening of the 18th of November through the 20/21.  As for Univocal's publications, they are available for sure at the NYU bookstore as well as McNally Jackson and perhaps St. Marks as well, but I will try to provide a more thorough list shortly. Plus, Sequence Press is having a "book week" event in late October and I would guess our books should be on display at the Miguel Abreu gallery again at that time.

Comment by Paul Boshears on October 2, 2012 at 22:28

I think Drew mentioned that there would be something happening at Miguel Abreu Gallery the following week. They are the home of Sequence Press and carry some of Univocal's publications in their fantastic reading area.

Comment by Tavia Nyong’o on October 2, 2012 at 21:13

Will there be a NYC book launch? Or NYC distribution for Univocal Press books?

Comment by John Ó Maoilearca on October 1, 2012 at 9:20

Looks great PB - wish I could be there

Comment by Paul Boshears on September 30, 2012 at 18:37

I'm looking forward to some meatspace time with Drew Burk at these non-standard evenings:
