Event Details

Lecture & Reception with Tadej Pogačar 
Introduction by Gediminas Urbonas 


NEW LOCATION: Media Lab Complex, E14-633,
Sixth Floor, 75 Amherst St, Cambridge, MA

Tadej Pogačar has examined indeterminacy and transformation within social systems since 1993 when he established the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Museum of Contemporary Art. In his art practice, he engages in interventionist logic, institutional critique, and critical research on social and political issues as well as participatory and collaborative projects. The "parasitism" of his work is a subtle deconstruction of the horizon of everyday and ruthless challenges to the systems that are used to establish the center, domination and power. Pogačar recently edited a book CODE:RED on self-organization of urban minorities, informal economies, and global sex work. He is the founding and managing director of the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute (established in 1998), a non-profit cultural institution that operates the P74 Centre and Gallery and the KAPSULA bookshop/project space in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Tadej Pogačar is the György Kepes research fellow at ACT for fall 2012.

This program is open to the MIT Community.

MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology

ACT explores art, in its broad, complex and global history and in its contemporary forms, in conjunction with its relations to culture, science, technology, and design. This investigation occurs in ACT’s academic offerings and public programs and is buttressed by research of faculty, fellows and guests of ACT.  Bridges between MIT discipline groups and departments are another facet of these encounters. Research manifests itself in individual and collaborative forms and includes work that investigates, creates and bridges practices involving time, movement and space: cinema, video, sound, performance, photography, experimental media and new genres, conceptual and spatial experiments with architecture and design, writings and publications.  Critical thinking, knowledge mining, and creative engagement, along with explorations of changing public and private spheres are of particular relevance. “Art on a civic scale,” can now be understood as encompassing many subjectivities and forms of migratory thinking and action to engage a critically transformative view of the world. The Program in Art, Culture and Technology is part of the Department of Architecture, within the School of Architecture + Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
