AND ANOTHER THING | September 14 - October 29, 2011
The exhibition “And Another Thing,” took its inspiration from the philosophy of speculative realism and object-oriented ontology. The main focus was the central tenet of non-anthropocentricism, which posits objects as specific, self-contained and non-reducible, and repositions human subjects as just another thing, no more or less important than any other.
Exhibiting artists included: Carl Andre, Laura Carton, Valie Export, Regina José Galindo, Tom Kotik, Mary Lucking, Bruce Nauman, Grit Ruhland, Anthony Titus, Ruslan Trusewych, and Zimoun.
Related programming included lectures by: Bernard Stiegler (École de Philosophie d’Épineuil-le-Fleuriel, IRI, Georges Pompidou Center ), Graham Harman (Philosophy, The American University of Cairo ), Jane Bennett (Political Science, Johns Hopkins University ), Noortje Marres (Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London), and David Turnbull (Architecture, The Cooper Union ; ATOPIA).
Guest Curators: Katherine Behar and Emmy Mikelson
