Writer and artist Huw Lemmey will cover the symposium “A Weekend of Schizo-Culture” at SPACE, London this Saturday and Sunday. Tune into his coverage 1pm-11pm-ish Saturday; 12-6pm Sunday. A detailed schedule for the weekend can be found here. From the symposium press release:
The closing Schizo-Culture Weekend will activate many of the subjects touched on by SPACE’s current exhibition: Schizo-Culture: Cracks In The Street. Discussions ranging across themes such as anti-psychiatry, philosophy and disciplinary rationalities (and their intersection with artistic practice today) will be programmed alongside performances, screenings and more impromptu interventions. Musical performances from Saturday afternoon will re-visit the bristling energy of 70′s Schizo-anarchy and its legacies and will run into the late evening. There will be a bar throughout at SPACE and the entire weekend is free and open to all.
The event includes contributions from activists, artists, philosophers, filmmakers and musicians including (amongst others) : Sylvere Lotringer, Susan Stenger, Kodwo Eshun (The Otolith Group), Colin Gordon,Vivienne Dick, Patrick Staff, Plastique Fantastique (David Burrows & Simon O’Sullivan and collaborators), Maggie Roberts & Lendl Barcelos, Ciaran Smyth (Vagabond Reviews), Anna Hickey Moody, Hester Reeve, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Josephine Wikstrøm, Mischa Twitchin and Empty Cages Collective with additional surprise guests and contributors.
