Innen - Aussen - Anders
Der Körper im Werk von Gilles Deleuze und Michel Foucault

Im Werk von Gilles Deleuze und Michel Foucault sind Körper und Körperlichkeit zentrale Aspekte, die in diesem Band erstmalig vergleichend in den Fokus gerückt werden. Die Beiträger_innen stellen die Entwürfe beider Denker zur Ästhetik und Ethik als Reflexionen der Beziehung zwischen Körper und Bild vor und betonen die Verkettungen von Körper, Macht und Ästhetik. Gleichzeitig werden spezifische Fragen der jüngeren Deleuze- und Foucault-Forschung angesprochen. Der interdisziplinäre Band bietet Wissenschaftler_innen aus Philosophie und Kunstgeschichte sowie den Medien- und Kulturwissenschaften einen thematischen Überblick und weiterführende Lektüre.

Debate Feminism & New Materialism with Jules Sturm and Katharina D. Martin | Wijsgerig Festival Drift

Considering that there seems to be a third party to any conceptual binary, a disruption to any normality, an exception to any universality: how to be respectful rather than prejudiced, how to be pleasantly surprised rather than shocked at the eccentric? This is tonight’s conundrum. Jules Sturm and Katharina D. Martin shall be talking about how a political philosophy of egalitarian and emancipatory contestation, feminism, aims at explicating and thereby politicizing what makes up the content of our experiences: bodies – matter – materials. | Felix Meritis | Keizersgracht 324 | 1016 EZ Amsterdam

From Signification towards Affect.
Faciality in Orson Welles' "The Lady from Shanghai”.

Lecture by Katharina D. Martin | Date: 1st February 2016 at 10.45 | Location: AKI ArtEZ Academy of Art & Design | Room 0.53

This lecture is as much an analyses of certain aspects in Orson Welles’ “The Lady from Shanghai”, as it is an introduction to the philosophical concepts of faciality, developed by the French Philosopher Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. To embed their theories into the necessary context, there will be given a rudimentary introduction to semiotics: The study of meaning-making. Katharina D. Martin will elaborate on notions like: signifier, signified, signification and sign, to then clarify the notion of the 'machine of faciality' and its effect within Orson Welles' work. The lecture will be followed by the screening of "The Lady from Shanghai".

Daughters of Chaos: Discipline, Practice, a Life
8th Deleuze Studies International Conference | Stockholm

‘Daughters of chaos’ describes the filial role with which Gilles Deleuze and his collaborator Félix Guattari have anointed the disciplines of philosophy, science and art, suggesting that disciplinary formations and their respective practices enable us to make sense of the diverse cultural and natural phenomena of local environments in relation to collective global concerns. “In short,” Deleuze and Guattari explain “chaos has three daughters, depending on the plane that cuts through it: these are the chaoids – art, science, and philosophy – as forms of thought or creation.”

Confirmed Invited Speakers: Gary Genosko; Lisa Mazzei; Simon O’Sullivan; Adrian Parr; Daniel W. Smith; Fredrika Spindler.

The Daughters of Chaos Deleuze Studies International Conference 2015 will take place at Konstfack: University College of Arts and Crafts ( south of the city centre of Stockholm, Sweden. |

Conference | Critical and Clinical Cartographies |
Department of Architecture TU Delft

The critical [...] and the clinical [...] may be destined to enter into a new relationship of mutual learning. [...] In place of a dialectic which all too readily perceives the link between opposites, we should aim for a critical and clinical appraisal able to reveal the truly differential mechanisms as well as the artistic originalities. (Deleuze, 1967)

The ambition of the 3C conference is to rethink medical and design pedagogies in the context of digital technologies. Cyber-physical technologies, a current locus of architectural and medical practices, assist the shift from the physical body to embodiment. Long after its impact on medical practices, digitalisation further challenges the ecological, economic and aesthetic habits of the architectural milieu.

Symposium: The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen

Keynotes speakers: Georges Didi-Huberman - Jonathan Hay - Jacques Rancière

Katharina D. Martin: White Wall and Black Hole: Micropolitics of the Undetectable Face.

The aim of this symposium is to contribute to our understanding of what the image does (its pragma). The awkward entanglement of being and non-being (Plato) calls for an examination of the image as an act or event. Through its event, the image-act instigates an image-related reflection upon the issues of being and non-being, physis and semiosis, actuality and potentiality. The concept of iconic difference as coined by art historian and philosopher Gottfried Boehm is vital to our concern. Iconic difference embraces an internal effect in the formation of images as an entanglement of being and non-being, matter/perception, imagination/representation, but also externally in the relations between images, language, and concepts.

Today, educational institutions within the fields of art, design, and architecture may no longer simply approach image making intuitively, but are requested to engage in a dialogue with academic research and science. Such primarily verbal discourse may, at best, support rather than suppress insights into the unique potentials of the image. Yet a prolific dialogue would not sustain the identity of the image as an already established reality (as re-presentation), but moreover articulate the particular behaviours of the image.

WHAT IMAGES DO follows upon the work of an international research network established in 2012 in collaboration between NCCR Iconic Criticism `eikones´ in Basel, TU Delft, Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. The network and its activities are funded by The Danish Council for Independent Research | Humanities (FKK).

Inside. Outside. Other.
The body in the work of Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault
International Conference // Academy of fine Arts Münster

Both Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault were intensely engaged with aspects of the body. In particular, their critical drafts of aesthetics as much as their political thinking are based on conceptions of the body and corporeality.

Deleuze's body is flexible, fleshy and abstract at the same time. Following Spinoza, in asking what the body can do, he unfolds his theory of becoming, becoming animal, becoming other. The potentiality of the body is revealed here as being in a state of nomadism and constant transformation. Together with Guattari he develops the concept of the “Body without Organs”, as an event through which hierarchies and codes are dissolved.

Foucault first of all attends to the body within his analytical investigations of power relations. In his late works and under the heading of an “Aesthetics of Existence“ he reformulates his thematic constellation between subject, truth and power. In the context of his reception of antique technologies of the self, the materiality of the bodily comes to the fore and leads to a revision of thinking alterity.

The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to examine the significance of the body in Deleuze’s and Foucault’s works. This is particularly relevant in view of the intellectual exchange between the two philosophers. Specifically this event provides the possibility of tracing connections and contrasts between the two thinkers’ conceptions of the bodily and thereby complement the existing reception.

A show by TINKEBELL. & Friends

Opening: Zaterdag 19 Januari 17:00 – 19:00

TORCH gallery welcomes the new year with GIRLS RULE THE WORLD. For this group exhibition TINKEBELL. invited female artworld friends she admires to send her their very best works. The exhibition isn't meant to be a feminist statement, but should rather function as proof that women often empower each other. TINKEBELL. feels that this is a phenomenon in need of greatly increased attention.

Several decades of women's emancipation haven't led to a proportionate regard for their art. Between anonymous home crafts and hysterical feminism there exists an enormous wealth of very relevant art by female artists. For this art to become more visible these artists will have to claim the stage themselves with courage and powerful works. With this in mind all the participating artists will choose their most typical and outspoken pieces for the exhibition. The result is a presentation that includes a plethora of media and messages all serving a single cause. From embroidery to video-art; women deserve more attention in contemporary art!

Many of the exhibited pieces display a very personal, ironic style. They function as sharp observations from a confidently female perspective. Purposely an almost physical discomfort is created by making use of treacherously clumsy aesthetics and a threatening intimacy. All the candy-cane pink and sugar-sweet displays of Girl Power just form a seductive icing on the often confronting messages within these works. The presented pieces charm the spectator first, only to deliver them a nasty bite when they really start looking. The idea is to present a selection of art that convincingly holds the viewer's attention and delivers a strong message in an unorthodox way. All the artists participating can be linked to illustrious predecessors such as Tracy Emin and Sophie Calle. Luckily this exhibition will transcend the personal sphere and should be able to actually live up to its title. GIRLS RULE THE WORLD should be a confident statement, not a feeble wish.

SHE DEVIL 5 | MACRO Rome's Museum of Contemporary Art

Katharina D. Martin's work 'stick' presented in the V-tunnel of Rome's Museum of Contemporary Art.

She Devil is the latest all-female exhibition of video art that Studio Stefania Miscetti has been successfully producing for years. As in previous editions, the review includes numerous international curators and artists, the aim being to set up an open platform for new and different experiences. She Devil, the name of a Marvel comic hero and title of a famous 1989 film by Susan Seidelman, alludes playfully to the diabolical and bizarre spirit with which artistic experience explores and interacts with everyday life.

The videos focus on a female-oriented research and compare different research paths. The initiative aims to arouse, sometimes with humour and at times with realism, the collective consciousness on issues such as female identity, the body as a place of representation and meaning, and personal experience, which has a universal dimension even when it is the intimacy of artists that is brought to the foreground.

galerie IRIS CORNELIS presents
Katharina D. Martin | Skin-deep

The work of Katharina D. Martin reflects the essential questions of human existence. Martin links the body as one's natural and limited material to the idea of personal identity. With her Installations, objects and videos she creates connection to the architectural space, both enclosing and defining it.
In her solo exhibition Skin-deep Martin's works refer to the body as a living and dying material which has always been loaded with meaning. One's hair and skin is constantly growing and dies at the moment of separation. Here latex, hair and wax are the materials, which have been brought into form and thus silently, but visually unveil what is hidden.

Forest Time | Watermill Center
laboratory for performance founded by Robert Wilson

In a residency taking place September 22–October 4, the German-born, Rotterdam-based performance and video artist Katharina D. Martin takes advantage of the Watermill Center’s unique locale, in addition to its resources for interdisciplinary work. Entitled Forest Time, her project will entail her living, glamorously dressed throughout, in the woods surrounding the facility—and filming herself over the course of several
days. She will be fully attired like a Marilyn Monroe-esque female icon, with a fresh manicure, makeup, evening wear, and high heels. She will carry out traditionally feminine activities, in addition to acts of survival and play, while living outdoors at Watermill. As she inhabits this striking incongruity—dressed up in artifice in a natural environment—Martin will reveal the absurdity of classic signifiers of glamorous femininity. This event is an opportunity to see Martin's work-in-progress, captured via video, to the general public.

The Watermill Center was founded by Rober Wilson - Watermill Center

Toine Horvers performance at the Enschede Cultuurmijl
Doorzicht (see through) performative installation
i.c.w.Katharina D. Martin

Doorzicht is a way of trying to make the Cultuurmijl, which is a long line through Enschede between north and south, a sort of transparent. The view on the line is broken by bends in the road, buildings, trees, etc. Two performers, connected by mobile phones, will describe the view from different points along the line. The first day (26.04.) was done by rotterdam artists Miriam Reeders and Gabrielle Barros Martins, this second day (24.05.) Toine Horvers will work in collaboration with performance artist Katharina D.
Martin. |

stylized acts | Vrijhof Cultuurcentrum Twente

With her performances, videoworks and objects Katharina D. Martin is tracing different forms of identity. One of her main topics is the research over female versions of existence. Her works have a strong personal aspect and giving at the time an important view on contemporary art. The body is one component of our self determination. So please do not be surprised when you find yourself close to one´s own body materials. Katharina D. Martin likes us to feel her work and leaves us in the same moment with different ideas of identity.

The opening reception will be held at Thursday the 24. April at 16.00
There will be taking place the Performance "Boxfight"

Ertragen | Long Shots #15 | SUB URBAN VIDEO LOUNGE

installation & performance & video

The place in which the performance takes place is a big space whose ground is covered with worn garments. The gowns, skirts, blouses, sweaters, T-shirts, trousers etc. are folded carefully. Every folded up pile contains clothes for one combination. Katharina D. Martin and her performance partner (M. Bernsen) confront each other. They begin to unfold the garments and to put them on, one combination at a time. They observe each other briefly and then take off the clothes to throw them heedlessly on the ground. The performance ends when all things have been worn and untidily lie spread out in the room.

KOP kunstenaars ontmoetingsplaats

Personality is flexible. People and society are evolving continuously. Nowadays the development of your personality does not only depend on your upbringing, education and social culture. With the use of make-up, plastic surgery, personality training, self-help books, virtual worlds like "Second life" and virtual networks like "Hyves" every individual can put on an other personality like a new coat. Weaknesses can be modified assets can be magnified. Choice is available in abundance. Identity is exchangeable, now more than ever.  
curator: Miranda Kronenberg advisors: Camiel van Lenteren/Dennis Elbers

Opening reception will be held on Friday 13th of April from 20.00-00.00
Friday may 25th there will be a festive closure from 21.00-02.00.

Positioning System - whereareyou, iamhere,hereweare |
MAMA - showroom for media and moving art in Rotterdam

Positioning System - whereareyou, iamhere, hereweare - is een groepstentoonstelling van in 2006 afgestudeerde kunstenaars uit Nederland en Belgie. Om zichzelf te lokaliseren en positioneren tegenover hun historisch, sociaal en cultureel bepaalde omgeving, gebruiken zij een persoonlijk positioneringsysteem. Zij ervaren, registreren en infiltreren in de wereld om zich heen gebruik makend van diverse systematische methoden. Deze werkwijze is vergelijkbaar met GPS; het populaire systeem dat het mogelijk maakt als gebruiker je positie te bepalen en je weg te vinden in een immens landschap van mogelijke routes.

The seamstress | Het Torentje

Het bestuur van Stichtig Het Torentje heet u van haarte welcom op de opening van de installatie The seamstress van Katharina D. Martin op zaterdag 17 juni 2006. U wordt verwacht om 17 uur inleescafé De Meridiaan van de Openbare Bibliotheek Het Baken 2 te Almelo

A big apparently disordered heap of used white clothes is pressed against the inside of one of both shop-window discs, and takes from the inside a significant part of the space. Everything is to be found under these clothes: Women, men and child clothes, clothing as well as underwear. Beside the mountain in clothes only two white stools similar to base are in the space. On one there lie scissors, thimble, needle and black thread. On the the artist herself sits. She wears a red dress. She sews everything with the hand on eachother and makes big pricks them how stay on the clothes behind, like long scars. Bit by bit there originates a carpet made from clothes. On Thursdays, a normal weekday; in the daybreak she sits there. Sunday, the end of one week; late in the evening, if the day goes over to become night, she sits there again and sews. For the whole length of the Exhibitiontime of this performative installation a slow restacking, therefore a metamorphosis, is to be noted. Here is in skillful way the textile history of the town connected with an archetypal picture.
