    GB Talks vol.2_ 'Cosmotechnics as Cosmopolitics' by Yuk Hui | When : 31st Oct, 2017 (Tuesday), 16:00-18:00 | Where: Conference Hall, 3F Gwangju Biennale Foundation As an integral part of GB Monthly Gatherings, followed by the talks by Azuma Hiroki & Alex Taek-gwang Lee on 1st Sep as the vol.2, Yuk Hui will give a public lecture on 'Cosmotechnics as Cosmopolitics' for the next edition Abstract This talk wants to approach the question of cosmopolitism for the following two reasons, which correlate with each other; and these two reasons also correspond to the two different senses of the word cosmopolitics. Firstly, we are witnessing the end of an unilateral globalisation: the so-called globalisation has been only a unilateral one, meaning the universalization (synchronization) of particular epistemologies and world view through techno-economical means, however this unilateral globalisation came to its end, indicated by the 911 event, and which we can also read in an article of Peter Thiel “Straussian moment”, in which he stated “The modern West has lost faith in itself. In the Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment period, this loss of faith liberated enormous commercial and creative forces. At the same time, this loss has rendered the West vulnerable. Is there a way to fortify the modern West without destroying it altogether, a way of not throwing the baby out with the bathwater?” If we are convinced that such a globalisation came to its end, and that it invokes an unhappy consciousness of the West, then it is necessary to start imagining a new order which is no longer a continuation of the same geopolitics with mere different power configuration. Secondly, human species on the earth is confronting the same crisis closely associated with the Anthropocene. The earth and the cosmos have been transformed into a gigantic technological system, the culmination of the epistemological and methodological rupture which we call modernity. The lost of the cosmos is the end of metaphysics in the sense that there is nothing behind the perfection of science and technology. This end of the cosmos in the 17thand18thcenturyinEurope,aviewsharedamonghistorianssuchasRémiBrague,AlexandreKoyréamongothers,shouldbereadintheAnthropoceneasaninvitationforacosmo-politics , not only in the sense of cosmopolitanism but also politics of the cosmos. In this context that I would like to suggest that in order to develop such a cosmopolitics, it is necessary to elucidate the question of cosmotechnics, a concept that I developed recently as an attempt to re-open the question of technology by proposing an antinomy of the universality of technology and undoing translations based on equivalence. In order to elaborate on the thesis cosmotechnics as cosmopolitics, I will divide this talk into three parts. This first part will demonstrate how the Kantian concept of cosmopolitics is rooted in his concept of nature; in the second part, we will situate the multinaturalism proposed by the “ontological turn” in Anthropology as a cosmopolitics, which in contrast to Kant’s pursuit of the universal, suggests a certain relativism as the condition of co-existence; in the third part, I will try to show why it is necessary to move from cosmology to cosmotechnics as a politics to come. Yuk Hui Yuk Hui is currently researcher of the project Techno-ecologies of Participation at the Leuphana University Lüneburg, where he teaches at the institute of philosophy; he is visiting professor at the China Academy of Art and member of the Centre international des études simondoniennes (MSH Paris Nord). Previous to that, He was postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Research and Innovation of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, as well as visiting scientist at the T-Labs Berlin. He published on philosophy of technology and media in periodicals such as Metaphilosophy, Research in Phenomenology, Parrhesia, Cahiers Simondon,  Jahrbuch Technikphilosophie, Implications Philosophiques, Angelaki, Intellectica, New Formations, Zeitschrift für Medienwissenschaft, Parallax, etc. He is co-editor of 30 Years after Les Immatériaux: Art, Science and Theory (2015), author of On the Existence of Digital Objects (prefaced by Bernard Stiegler, University of Minnesota Press, 2016), and The Question Concerning Technology in China -An Essay in Cosmotechnics (Urbanomic, 2016).

    The 12th Gwangju Biennale September 7 – November 11, 2018                                                                                                                                                     Gwangju Biennale 2018 employs new curatorial structure under the theme of “Imagined Borders” - A new structure, with multiple curators to be employed instead of a system under a single artistic direction  - Venues including the Biennale Exhibition Hall, Asia Culture Center, and historical public spaces to be used for the exhibition    - The main theme of the Biennale is “Imagined Borders”   On September 11, the Gwangju Biennale Foundation initiated its twelfth edition which employs a new structure, with multiple curators, while articulating the Biennale’s characteristics, which focus on the historicity and the spatial meanings of Gwangju. Based on the experiences accumulated over the past 23 years of the Biennale, its curatorial team is expected to formulate diversified exhibitions that ruminate on both the past and the present of human civilization and explore alternatives for the future while re-illuminating the city of Gwangju. Grounded on decades-long discourses and on-site curatorial experiences, these transitions have been made to, above all, represent the historicity and locality of Gwangju in a more effective way and to leave cultural relics for future generations of the local community.   The processes of on-site curating with multiple curators will instill new energy in the Biennale, setting up the synchronic (spatial) and diachronic (historic) pillars of the hosting city. The collective curatorship will embody a wealth of diverse ideas and discourses in the form of visual arts. One of the plans is to discover the historical public spaces that are imbued with democratic, humanitarian and peaceful spirits throughout Gwangju – a goal that reflects the background of the origins of the Gwangju Biennale in 1995 – and link them to other exhibition spaces.   The Gwangju Biennale Exhibition Hall, located in Yongbong-dong which has hosted 1,414 artists and 7,640,000 audiences for the past 23 years, will be the main exhibition space and the symbolic meanings behind it will be emphasized further. Alongside the Biennale Hall, the Asia Culture Center, the Gwangju Museum of Art and other cultural and historic spaces will be used for exhibitions, reinventing the city as an enhanced site for visual art events. The citywide cultural belt will also contribute to the cultural tourism in the region. Meanwhile, after curatorial research and two committee meetings, the Foundation had decided on “Imagined Borders” as the theme of the next Biennale. “Imagined Borders,” a term appropriated from Benedict Anderson’s literature on nationalism titled Imagined Community, deals with the national and geopolitical reconstruction that has taken place on a global level. It will explore issues beyond geopolitical boundaries including economical, generational, psychological borders and borderlessness from diverse perspectives. Especially at a time when invisible yet iron borders – not dichotomous borders (e.g., between nations and generations) but the more complex borders among diverse elements – have emerged, the theme “Imagined Borders” will provide an opportunity to reconsider the agenda of the global community of our times. As an integral part of lively programs related to the exhibition, the Gwangju Biennale Foundation will present the Monthly Gatherings, which includes GB Talks and Artist Studio Visit, and the Education Program for schools and communities.
