MATTER OF FACT: AFTERMATH

The program Matter of Fact explores educational aesthetics in performativity. Questioning the transmission of subject matter, knowledge and content, the performer implies pedagogical methods when speculating on the formality of artistic, fictitious and personal politics of history. A small 'cast' of contributors are using the timeframe of the exhibition as a point of departure to reflect upon their own method of transcending knowledge. Their specificities range from the pure formality of the conscious, language as a visual spectacle, mediators of cultural production and epic emancipators of utopian (political) potentialities.

The program of Matter of Fact was especially designed for Manifesta 7's 'Principle Hope' and took on a process-based structure in which each contributor was working towards a 'result'. As Manifesta 7 is coming to an end, Matter of Fact encourages itself to continue discussing its potential results in a form of an 'aftermath'. This 'aftermath' comprises of a series of performances by Adam Pendleton, Falke Pisano and Will holder, a series of screenings by Renzo Martens, Falke Pisano and Ricardo Valentim and various presentations by Jeremiah Day and Olaf Nicolai.

As the initial discourse of Manifesta is debating the notion of Europe, Matter of Fact stretches its contextual boundaries by presenting its 'aftermath' in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Contributors: Jeremiah Day, Renzo Martens, Olaf Nicolai, Adam Pendleton, Falke Pisano/Will Holder, Ricardo Valentim

Curator: Krist Gruijthuijsen
