The first in a series of public workshops analysing the impact of Les immatériaux, the exhibition co-curated by Jean-François Lyotard and Thierry Chaput at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, in 1985. Workshop participants Luca Frei, Marysia Lewandowska, Emily Pethick, Antonia Wunderlich and Peter Zeillinger will address Les immatériaux as a sum of archives, from the show's two catalogues to the sound records transmitted via headphones during the exhibition. In a bid to rethink Les immatériaux as an unprecedented phenomenological reflection on excavation, memory, and translation, the workshop will call upon, among other references, Lyotard's late essays (Chambre sourde, La confession d'Augustin), Jacques Derrida's Mal d'archive and Mémoires d'aveugle, as well as contemporary artistic practices concerned with participatory forms of aesthetic engagement.
