The Israeli Center for Digital Art, is pleased to invite to an open panel with the participation of David Riff and Hans D. Christ, visiting the Center as part of the project "Perverse Decolonization". The panel will be moderated by Udi Edelman 

June 19 2018, Tuesday
7:30pm-9:30pm


Perverse Decolonization is a long-term research project initiated by the Academy of Arts of the World in Cologne, together with a network of six institutions around the world,that includes The Israeli Center for Digital Art. The project addresses the current crisis of postcolonial studies and identity politics and its possible appropriations in new nationalisms emerging on a global scale. It proposes to look closely at how the decolonizing agenda we support is enlisted in reactionary projects, and what new forms of solidarity and common action one might propose to resist these new dangers. The project convenes an international research group with the participation of artists, writers, curators, and theorists from East and South East Asia, the US, and Europe.

As part of a two days seminar organized at The Israeli Center for Digital Art by Udi Edelman and Joshua Simon, Riff and Christ will present their curatorial work in the context of the project.

David Riff is a writer, translator, artist, and curator. From 2003 to 2008 Riff was member of the workgroup Chto delat and coeditor of the newspaper of the same name. He has written widely on contemporary art in Russia and translated important texts from Russian to English. His most recent project was a translation of the contraversial antimodernist book The Crisis of Ugliness by Soviet aesthetic philosopher Mikhail Lifshitz. Recent curatorial projects include If our soup can could speak… Mikhail Lifshitz and the Soviet Sixties (with Dmitry Gutov, 2018), the biyearly Pluriversale I to VII at the Academy of the Arts of the World Cologne (with Ekaterina Degot, Aneta Rostowska, et. al., 2014-2017),  Monday Begins on Saturday, Bergen Assembly (2013, with Ekaterina Degot); the 1st Ural Industrial Biennial, Yekaterinburg (2010, with Cosmin Costinaş and Ekaterina Degot). Currently, Riff is curator of discourse at the arts festival steirischer herbst in Graz, Austria. 

Hans D. Christ is currently co-director of Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, Germany. He studied art and literary sciences. In 1996 he founded hArtware medienkunstverein together with Iris Dressler (today hmkv, Dortmund/Germany). In 2004, he was co-curator of Media City Seoul/South Korea. He curated major solo exhibitions together with Iris Dressler of artists such as Rabih Mroué and Alexander Kluge. A main focus is on larger group exhibitions around the historical, actual, political, global, and discursive dimensions of conceptual art, in which he collaborated with several other curators and institutions abroad, such as: Subversive Practices, Art under Conditions of Political Repression, 60s–80s/South Americ/Europe (2009); The Beast is the Sovereign; 50 years after 50 years Bauhaus (2018).
