Kearen politikak : programaren aurkezpena = Políticas del humo : presentación del programa = Smoke politics : presentation of the series of lectures
As part of the project Stimulants: Circulation and Euphoria, we would like to present Smoke Politics a section that comprises a series of conferences from different dead authors, that will be pronounced, commented, set in stage, by different guest authors throughout 2016. Thereby, the voices from writers, philosophers, politicians, poets, chemicals and artists like Karl Kraus, Simone Weil, Aby Warburg, Albert Hofmann, Jóse Martí, María Zambrano or David Foster Wallace, will be invoked by authors like Asier Mendizabal (artist), Esteban Zamora (philosopher) Gema Intxausti (artist), Xavier Arakistain (art curator), Danele Sarriugarte (writer), Josebe Martínez (anthropologist), Lars Bang Larsen (writer and independent curator) or Valentín Roma (writer and independent curator).
This first meeting will work as a public presentation of the project and as a research on the relations that can be established in between the readings of invoked texts, and the notes and remarks that mediators may provide. A work journey framed in a broader project that tries to think about stimulants and stimulate the thinking, in the same way.
