Hyper Cultural Passengers. Sharing Aesthetics Across Co-Contemporary Collectives

The publication examines placelessness, digitality, and networking without understanding culturality as identity

Derzeit nicht verfügbar

Hyper Cultural Passengers examines placelessness, digitality, and networking without understanding culturality as identity.

Cultural proximity is outlined as a constructive dissent of artistic and intellectual articulations transverse to national and cultural categorizations.

HyperCulturality as a family resemblance (Wittgenstein) offers seemingly foreign art and cultural practices an unconstrained exchange of artistic action and theoretical reflection. The volume Hyper Cultural Passengers asks how art and philosophy can contribute to generating spaces of dialogue that are not territorial and borne of national self-assertion.

The volume documents the project started in Hamburg in 2016 that outlines a broad spectrum of positions in hyper cultural art and cultural practices. The myth of the autonomous subject is problematized with different formats such as artist-in-residences, conferences, lecture series, workshops, or co-cookings. The figure of the hyper cultural passenger is proposed instead: these come from Japan, China, South Korea, India, Jordan, Finland, the Netherlands, France, Iceland, and the USA, among others.
