DESCRIPTION

Bahar Noorizadeh will discuss her multi-disciplinary practice covering planetary governance, computational architectures, finance, and contemporary art.

Noorizadeh will examine cinematic methods that best capture abstract machines of codification, digitization, and valorization that currently underlie our material realities. What is the significance of new ways of seeing in the face of growingly image-free informatic infrastructures? And how to engage with contemporary visual techne that is, for the most part, uninterested in the morphology of our bodies?

The lecture is organized with the support of the Embassy of Canada in Moscow.

ABOUT THE LECTURER

Bahar Noorizadeh (b.1988) is a Canadian and Iranian filmmaker, writer, and platform designer. Noorizadeh is a founding member of BLOCC (Building Leverage over Creative Capitalism), a research and education platform that proposes pedagogy as strategy to alter the relationship between contemporary art and the planetary phenomena of urban renewal and social cleansing. Her current research examines the intersections of finance, contemporary art, and emerging technology, building on the notion of "weird economies" to precipitate a cross-disciplinary approach to economic futurism and post-financialization imaginaries.
