Next Topic: “The Psychogeography of Occupation” with Noah Simblist”
Filmed March 6, 2014 at CentralTrak
The second lecture of NEXT TOPIC’s two-part series on Middle Eastern contemporary art will be lead by writer, curator, and artist Noah Simblist. Simblist will be interpenetrating relationships between art, activism, architecture, archaeology and film and their connection to the flourishing new forms of art practices in the Israel-Palestine-Lebanon region, a geographical zone where tremendous political turmoil is nothing new. Artists discussed will include Yael Bartana, Ayreen Anastas, Ariella Azoulay, Akram Zaatari, and Khaled Hourani.
An Associate Professor of Art at Southern Methodist University, works as a writer, curator, and artist with a focus on art and politics in Israel-Palestine. He has contributed to Art Journal, Modern Painters, Art Papers, Art Lies, and Art21. Writing projects include Setting Sail: The Aesthetics of Politics on the Gaza Flotilla; The Art of Forgetfulness, the Trauma of Memory: Yael Bartana and Artur Zmijewski; and interviews with Khaled Hourani, Omer Fast, Yoshua Okon, Jill Magid, AL Steiner and AK Burns, Walead Beshty and Nicholas Schaffhausen. He was on the curatorial team for the 2013 Texas Biennial.
