Keynote Performance Lecture

To Neither Confirm Nor Deny that the Matter Neither Reflected Nor Absorbed Light. In this multi-part project, Haig Aivazian looks at the stories, dynamics, and narratives that have emerged from the visualizations of the so-called Dominique Strauss-Kahn Affair. Centered around an assault in a Sofitel suite in Manhattan, where the only witness is also the survivor of the attack, the work seeks to ultimately present a strange framework, through which an immaterial globalized financial economy and corporeal violence become inextricably linked.
