it's interesting that there is quite frequently a large wedge of critical theory backing these projects up, perhaps it is only because the projects need to stand up as academic but it strikes me that it could be a classic example of the map preceding the territory-who thought it would be so difficult to talk about the everyday
updated with info from Thursday's meeting
I have also added future slots (finally got my head round it.)
The details are as follows but there is some discussion still to be had here:
5th april -2nd may tk31
3rd May-30th May tk32
31st May-27th Junetk33
28th June-4th July*tk34
5th July-2nd August tk35
which would probably put the mapproject running from 31st May until 27th June- which may not be ideal for the annuale as they are aiming for the end of June
i spoke with Duncan Shingleton, who works with RFID tags and he is interested to discuss possibilities about the mapping events. i told him that the next meeting is happening on sunday 8 november, his email address duncan(at)shingleton.org and his website http://www.shingleton.org. perhaps someone can contact him with the time etc... as i do not have this information since i wasn't going to be there.
"Weizman shows how Deleuze and Guattari’s notion of ‘smooth’ and ‘striated’ space helped the IDF explain to soldiers the concept of ‘inverse geometry’, the military manoeuvre of dynamiting pathways through an enemy’s domestic interiors to avoid the hazards of streets and other exposed urban areas. Taken out of their ethical/political contexts, the projects of Gordon Matta-Clark, Guy Debord , Georges Bataille and Bernard Tschumi have also come in handy as instruments of military propaganda. According to Shimon Naveh, ex-director of the Operational Theory Research Institute (an IDF think-tank): ‘We share more with architects; we combine theory and practice. We can read, but we know as well how to build and destroy, and sometimes kill.’
