Haig Aivazian: World/AntiWorld: On Seeing Double
Tuesday, May 8th 2018, 7 pm, Aula

World/AntiWorld: On Seeing Double grapples with the ways in which our selves are collectively and individually constituted and de-constituted by the intersecting gazes of law, capital and machines. Structured around the three explosions that occurred at the Stade de France in November 2015, the narrative of this lecture takes on the history and futures of surveillance technologies and the so-called subjects they construct. With a particular focus on the increasing difficulty to differentiate between populations of colonies, war zones, and ghettoes, or to clearly delineate the territorial boundaries between them, Aivazian looks at the preemptive and corrective regimes triggered by the back and forth passage between the state of law and the state of exception. The narrative is weaved in and out of the stadium, and told with the help of found online material, to present us with a world that we inhabit together: a world we are always at once familiar with, and alien to.

Haig Aivazian is an artist living in Beirut. Working across a wide range of media, he delves into the ways in which ideologies embed, affect and move people, objects and architecture. Often departing from known events, and weaving in lesser known narratives, he has explored the workings of history writing and sovereignty at work in sports, finance, museums and music.
