Ayreen Anastas & Rene Gabri

Ayreen_Anastas_Rene_Gabri_web

Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri are artists currently living between a megalopolis and a small mountain village.‎ Taking life as a form of writing, engaging, playing, experimenting, often collectively, with friends (e.g., 16 Beaver Group, e-Xplo, Centre for Parrhesia, Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, Un Groupe Comme les Autres, ...), constructing and inhabiting planes of consistency with fellow commoners (e.g., AND...AND...AND, Commoning Times, ...) and struggling to engage and confront the dominant forms of modelization of subjectivity - the two are most interested in processes which nurture a common and concurrently multiply the paths of singularization and autonomy. 

Ayreen writes in fragments: 

Possible.  Ayreen, architecture, philosophy, literature, art, such and such biennials, this and that exhibition, x and y residency, Palestine, occupation, videos, films, maps, notes, performance, Pasolini, New York, Armenia, Caucasus, Berlin, Nietzsche, Maria Mies, Valerie Solanas, subsistence, the ugliest man, Venice, documenta(13), and and and… ‎‎

Rene asks: 

In light of the fact that  struggle today is not restricted to political economy and controlling the means of production or reproduction:‎‎

How can we decolonize the capitalist production of Desire and disrupt its immaterial and material factories of production of subjectivity and subjectivation? And how can the attempt to develop these means of decolonization resist capture, absorption, institutionalization, or becoming-sectarian?
