Reduction as Expansion. The Queer Capacities of Abstract Art

Lecture, 1 Feb 2021, 19:30

Abstract art is sometimes considered merely formal, and its reductive visual qualities are seen as a refusal of representation or a flight from subject matter. By contrast, this talk will examine how artists and critics have imbued abstraction with queer capacities, seeing it as a means to visualize unorthodox relations and forms.

At ICI Berlin upon prior registration. Registration opens on 11 Jan 2021. Livestream will be available on the ICI website.

Possibilities of Lyric

Possibilities of Lyric

Reading Petrarch in Dialogue
With an Epilogue by Antonella Anedda Angioy

Manuele Gragnolati and Francesca Southerden

Cultural Inquiry, 18

Berlin: ICI Berlin Press, 2020

Open Access

Opening to passion as an unsettling, transformative force; extending desire to the text, expanding the self, and dissolving its boundaries; imagining pleasures outside the norm and intensifying them; overcoming loss and reaching beyond death; being loyal to oneself and defying productivity, resolution, and cohesion while embracing paradox, non-linearity, incompletion. These are some of the possibilities of lyric that this book explores by reading Petrarch’s vernacular poetry in dialogue with that of other poets, including Guido Cavalcanti, Dante, and Shakespeare. In the Epilogue, the poet Antonella Anedda Angioy engages with Ossip Mandel’štam and Paul Celan’s dialogue with Petrarch and extends it into the present.
