Inside Out - Craig Dworkin - And Nothing But (on Facts)


As part of the Inside Out lecture series, visiting lecturer Craig Dworkin will be giving five talks, 'And Nothing But (on Facts)' is the third in the series.

Starting from Ludwig Wittgenstein’s arguments in the Tractatus, this lecture focuses on the most basic, factual descriptions of the material substrates of art in order to complicate their simplicity, trouble their neutrality, and argue for the politics of materiality itself.  Using insights from Hollis Frampton and McKenzie Wark, the talk proposes that the closer one looks at the brute physicality of an object, the more intently the social peers back.
