“World Image and performativeness of glocal consciousness”, Slavonski Brod, Croatia, 11 June, 2016 Innovative cultural shock against xenophobia as a destructor of conservative ego.
Situationally performative multiplier or Affective performativeness of authentic process
In this year’s expressive, energizing and multiplying affect of the moment, situationally performative events represent the urban trine: Slovenian musician Aljaz Razdevsek on saxophone (student of the Conservatoire a rayonnement regional de Lyon and of the Music Academy in Zagreb), playing classical (J.S.Bach, Partita), then contemporary Japanese (J.D. Michat, Kokoro) as well as dance music of Slovenian/Albanian composer Zeqirja Ballata (Kaba) on the southern part of the square in Slavonski Brod, then French pianist Regis Kattie (a student of the Music Academy in Zagreb ) with free jazz performance on the northern part of the square, and finaly three contemporary dancers from the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb / department of contemporary dance – Nastja Stefanic, Eleonora Magdalena Vrdoljak and Cynthia Kucic, will perform freestyle choreography on the music of Steve Reich’s “City life”, at the central part of the square.
Through this kind of affective performativity of authentic process, we encourage “prelinguistic domain” of so-called “infralanguage ‘(Hansen, Bodies in code, 2006, p.4), which transforms transpersonal and collective individuation and socialization in maturation. This primal and original event supersedes the environment as a mere information system and creates global and local synergy or “glocal-skin”, as the authentic event that occurs spontaneously, intertwined with quiet interspace and resonance of architecture, like “letting-be of appearing” of generic affect (Badiou, Being and Event, 1988, p. 125). This original multicultural existence by direct stream and primal meme, was created as the poetic and expressive spirit of continental philosophy, outside the usual linguistic constructivism and opposed to the “(…) Anglo-American philosophy, which is supposedly rationalist, based on formal analysis of language and mathematized logic” (Badiou, the author’s preface).
With the immersion in the poetic event on an expected sunny midday at the Square on June 11, we will strive to round off the height of the sphere.
Online reviews on multimedial visions of performances will be written at the social network glocal-art by the scientists: PhD Lino Veljak (Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Philosophy, University of Zagreb), PhD Biserka Cvjeticanin (Institute for Development and International Relations IRMO, Zagreb), PhD Divna Vuksanovic (Faculty of Dramatic Arts, Belgrade), PhD Kruno Martinac (Murdoch University, Australia) and MA Jugoslav Gojkovic (Psychiatric Hospital, Slavonski Brod).
