MMMLS [MIARD Multiple Media Lecture Series by Ephraim Joris] Text by Ephraim.

Lecture III: Matter of/or Fact; from Medium specificity to Intermediality on May 22, 6pm We will look at the medium of representation as discussed by Rosalind Krauss and Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht reminding us that, what is “present” to us, is “in front of us, in reach of and tangible for our bodies. The art of representation is rooted in substance yet reaches for that what is not substance. In the words of George Steiner; “The task of the aesthetic is to quicken into presence the continuum between temporality and eternity, between matter and spirit, between man and ‘the other’” [Steiner, G. (1989). Real presences: Is there anything in what we say? London, UK: Faber. P 227]
