THE OBJECT TURNED INSIDE OUT

Object art is entirely processual and performative. No object preexists a perspective, a context and a participant-observer. The object post-object was not has been turned on its head, and turned inside out. A site dedicated to second order observation.…

That sounds fascinating. I'm not all that familiar with exilic philosophy, except Heidegger's various considerations of 'homecoming through otherness". One of my research areas is the phenomenology of international development, central to which, as I see it, is the concept of the 'other', and also an aspect of socio-economic 'exile' in its origin in colonialism. (And, perhaps, and maybe more significantly, an aspect of environmental 'exile', although I haven't thought this through fully, yet.)

But I'm probably using 'exile' in a rather different sense.

Hi Yana,

Thanks for your message. I actually work as a consultant, so am not affiliated with any university. However, I have an ongoing connection with Carleton University, both as an alumnus and also because my wife is doing her Ph.D. there right now.

What brought you to this group? I found out about it through one of the philosophy listservs I subscribe to.

Kind regards,

Michael
