Al-Isnad or Chains We Can Believe In
A lecture performance by Slavs and Tatars
Reservation via
The lecture tells a story of mysticism within modernity, namely through the unlikely perspective of a Dan Flavin commissions for a Sufi mosque in downtown New York in the early 1980s, via the Dia Art Foundation. From Khlebnikov and the Russian Futurists to Charles de Foucauld and le renouveau catholique, the lecture attempts a definition of criticality through hospitality and the sacred, linguistic and syncretic, respectively. Al-Isnad or Chains We Can Believe In has been presented at the MoMA (New York), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Institutions by Artists conference, (Vancouver), Bardo National Museum (Tunis), MuMa (Melbourne), Princeton University Art Museum and West (Den Haag).
Slavs and Tatars is an art collective devoted to an area East of the former Berlin Wall and West of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia. Their practice is based on three activities: exhibitions, books and lecture-performances. With a heady mix of high and low brow humor, the artists turn to sculptures, installations, and text to excavate and explore a geography that is equally imagined as it is political. Since 2006, the collective’s work has been exhibited at major museums and biennials internationally, including Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, 10th Sharjah, 8th Berlin, 3rd Thessaloniki, and 9th Gwangju Biennials.
Presented as part of the second chapter TRANSCULTURAL TRANSIENCE of the curatorial collaboration Karma Ltd Extended at ACUD macht NEU, curated by Pauline Doutreluingne and Petra Poelzl.

The program is funded by the Berlin Department for Culture and Europe.
