Beschreibung des Seminars

‘Uh-huh, uh-huh. Like kick ass. Anyway, I don't wanna sound. Like a dick or nothing, but I looked at your dates and it seems like your fucked up, you talk like a fa*, and your sh*t may be reta*ded. What I'd do, grrl, is get plenty of unrest. KHM doesn't lie, gringo. But hear me – there's plenty of 'ta*ds out there doing real kickass careers. My first guy was reta*ded and he is a cu*ator and has a g*llry now.’ Idiocracy (2006, adapted)

Idiocracy. Idiocrazy. In this seminar, we take a look at the concept of dumb, stupid, ignorant, uneducated, and all the capabilities and freedoms that come with the inability to understand, voice, conceptualize and convey one’s and other’s ideas into conversations, or even sparkle curiosity and, like, be transformed into work that kinda of contributes to society.

What role does contemporary and digital art play in the context of idiocracy? Amplify or counteract? How to deal with society asking art to be educational and dictative instead of experimental and free. What are the implications on one’s work when dealing with idiocracy-like institutions & algorithms, art producers, NFT-bros, insta, and superficial & anxious curators? Is ‘intellectual’ art a dead- end or just a dream outta Old Europe?

We look at art that examines the idea of ‘Idiocracy’ and at art that is idiocratic. We will watch, like, some films and try to decipher things that are written with, like, words and then, like, talk about stuff with, like, heavy words.

This seminar is stupid and: #NoChildLeftBehind.
