МИМЕТИЧНИ МАШИНИ В ИЗРОДНАТА ДОЛИНА

Семинар "Софийски игри"

KSpassova Камелия Спасова

Присъединяването на музата на видеоигрите към сферата на естетическото поражда интересни теоретични отгласи. Естетически, от структурна гледна точка, видеоиграта е толкова поразителен обект! Той сам налага съживяването на релевантността на структурализма и семиотиката с цялата многопосочност на тяхната концептуална апаратура, а не само по отношение на наратологията. (вж. тук и тук) Наложително лице в лице с виртуалното и със завладяващата увлекателност – или направо завличането – в игрите се оказва да си припомним и конципириането на реализма, мимезиса, правдоподобността, отстранението и т. п.  Най-сетне психоаналитичната проблематика сама се натрапва от двете страни на монитора.

„Нечовешките фигури – восъчните статуи, куклите, марионетките, задвижените механизми, антропоморфните автомати, въобще
миметичните машини – са способни да ни хвърлят в непонятен ужас, да предизвикат обезпокоително-странен ефект, да тревожат човешкото, защото в тяхната имитация, в уподобяването им на човека нещо не е както трябва. Автоматизмът на изкачащото скрито дъно е основен при този…

In my books I am articulating metamorphosis as ontological concept as well as a critical instrument for reflexive intervention in the ‘ontology of the actuality’. The series of four lectures, accompanied by seminars, will propose a concise and experimental version of my philosophical proposals on the figure and the concept of metamorphosis, in direct connection to important tendencies in contemporary art, with special attention to contemporary dance and performance.

International Forum
“The Sublime and the Uncanny”

Place: New Conference Room, Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, Sofia
Time: 2.03- 4.03.2015

sublime_uncannyThe international forum „The Sublime and the Uncanny“ will be held between the 2nd and the 4th of March 2015 in the New Conference Room of the Sofia University. It is organized by the University of Tokyo Center for Philosophy (UTCP), the Sofia Literary Theory Seminar and the Cultural Centre of Sofia University. The forum is interdisciplinary and focuses on the notions of ‘the Sublime’ and ‘das Unheimliche’, which play a crucial role not only in 20th century but also in contemporary critical discourses.

It will pose the question of the correlation and heuristic potential of these notions in the time of redefinition of the understanding of human intellect, respectively – the status of the (in)human. The forum will expose in a new perspective the topics of the „Metamorphosis and Catastrophe“ symposium, held at the beginning of November 2013.

Interventions on the topic „The Sublime and the Uncanny“ will be presented by Alexander Kiossev, Boyan Manchev, Futoshi Hoshino, Kamelia Spassova, Yuji Nishiyama, Darin Tenev, Takafumi Shimada, Bozhana Filipova, Hisato Kuriwaki, Maria Kalinova, Enyo Stoyanov, Miglena Nikolchina
The forum is open to the public. See below the detailed program.
