hi guys-

i'm so happy to see that so many people are interested, but i'm going to have to cap the class at 25 students so that we can have discussions and interactive fun as opposed to big lectures.  please rsvp if you are sure you want one of those spots, and send me an email (dearface@gmail.com) if you know you need to miss any of the classes- that's fine if that's the case, i'd just like to know who to expect.

also- we have nearly 25 people who've rsvp'd already- so let us know if your plans have changed, or add your name to the list as soon as you're able!

thanks,

claire

Magickal things

This post was made to the blog for art as a magickal practice

hi,

I'm not sure what the plan is for the class but I had a couple of things that might be cool to read/watch/listen to:

Max Ernst and Alchemy
A Magician in Search of Myth

Description:

"Surrealist artist Max Ernst defined collage as the "alchemy of the visual image." Students of his work have often dismissed this comment as simply a metaphor for the transformative power of using found images in a new context. Taking a wholly different perspective on Ernst and alchemy, however, M. E. Warlick persuasively demonstrates that the artist had a profound and abiding interest in alchemical philosophy and often used alchemical symbolism in works created throughout his career."

Notes since class

This post was made to the blog for Theory/Practice based workshop on the manifesto

Thanks for the great class last evening.  To quickly summarize a few of the points that I have continued to think about since then:

On the communiqué versus the manifesto: proceeding from the dictionary definition of communiqué does not give a sense of the alternative history and use of the form; nonetheless, it seems that the communiqué is a statement or report and that it somehow includes within itself a sense of its own distribution. (People who distribute the communiqué as co-authors, or part of the “we”).  The communiqué is the line connecting reporter and receiver.  The manifesto seems to be a little more declarative, a making public of principles, not necessarily in reference to a particular event. A surface, not a line?
