Andrea Philips discusses the economy of subject object relations and the ways in which these are configured and might be reconfigured within Contemporary Art.


Andrea Philips | Tuesday 7th October | 7-8.30pm

Andrea Philips discusses the economy of subject object relations and the ways in which these are configured and might be reconfigured within Contemporary Art.

Contemporary art is configured in such a way as to make pliant subjects of us all – standing, looking, expectant of intellectual and/or pleasurable transformation. How we come to act in this way is economic, both in the sense that we fulfil a profitable role in a politically organised cultural economy, and that our role affirms and maintains the unnameable and abstracted values that sustain the economy of the object we encounter. An alternative animistic and psychoanalytic history of objects exist in which they act on us persuasively. Recent object-oriented philosophies suggest that objects (for instance art objects) need to be decoupled from their subjectification within human cognition. In turn I want to propose that we, as the publics of objects, desubject ourselves from the economy of spectatorship however superficially diversified and demand that exhibitions and their institutions change in favour of our new viewing needs, wherein we are no longer subservient to the (economy of the) objects we encounter.
