23. - 24.Jun.10 LONDON: The Hole in Time: German–Jewish Political Philosophy and the Archive
A Workshop Co-Organised by Sas Mays (University of Westminster), and Leena Petersen and Nitzan Leibovic (Sussex), as part of the research project ‘Archiving Cultures’ led by Sas Mays at the Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture at the University of Westminster.

Left discussions of politics and history owe much to German-Jewish theories of temporality that emerged in response to the political crises of twentieth-century Europe. Such theories problematized both the life of the individual and how the state perceived it. Given the rise of bureaucratisation, surveillance and control defining the modern state, and the concommitant rise in theoretical interest in ‘the archive’, the workshop ‘German-Jewish Political Philosophy and the Archive’ brings together interested parties to engage with German-Jewish conceptions of temporality, history, and crisis in terms of their archival dimensions, and to open discussion of German-French dialogue in critical philosophy in this context.

1.00 – 3.00 Panel 5: The External Archive Chair: Esther Leslie (Birkbeck) Andy Fisher (Goldsmiths): ‘Quiet Life’
Manu Luksch (London): ‘Moonwalking in RealTime’

University of Westminster, Portland Hall, 4–16 Little Titchfield Street, London W1W 7UW

videoclub & Index on Censorship present BEYOND SURVEILLANCE, curated by Manu Luksch. A screening of art works developed in response to and in counteraction against surveillance technologies, with a panel of speakers discussing the consequences of and alternatives to surveillance in our daily life. What are the consequences of surveillance on our daily lives? Is surveillance provoking a climate of self-censorship? Is a society without a paternalistic infrastructure of control, such as surveillance and censorship, possible? As surveillance technologies become more ubiquitous – from CCTV to data-mining on websites to mobile phones to Google streetcar – does it not become ever more important to consider the implications and to develop creative, radical responses, counteracting and reversing acts of surveillance? Artist and curator Manu Luksch has selected several works which explore differing aspects of re-activism to surveillance technologies; selected artists include: Michelle Teran, David Valentine, Caspar Below, and The Bureau of Inverse Technology. Panel - Caspar Below – artist - Julia Farrington – Head of Arts at Index on Censorship - Manu Luksch – ambientTV.NET / artist - David Valentine – artist Manu Luksch is highly celebrated for her work investigating the use of surveillance technologies in artistic practice: http://www.ambienttv.net In particular her work Faceless has been internationally recognised and celebrated for its approach in exploring CCTV / surveillance technology in society.
