Open Call Fumogeni #1 Elizabeth Povinelli


FUMOGENI is an independent initiative run by a group of artists, collectors, and curators based in Genoa, Milan, and London. Oriented towards creating a space where art, theory, and critical reflection merge, the project aims at promoting social, political and

environmental discourse. We seek to share this knowledge beyond its artistic context, all inclusively to the public. The theoreticians we are contacting have been chosen based on our passions and adherence to a line that, this year, will be geared towards an open reflection on the Anthropocene.

FUMOGENI is structured as an autonomous research group. Participants will be contacted prior to the event to analyze texts and topics related to the lecture. We will, therefore, wish to find an active group of people, ready to submit questions and discuss ideas. The talks take the form of a public presentation and are part of the program of Space4235/CHAN, two independent exhibition spaces/curatorial projects based in Genova.

The lecture/workshop will be conducted in English

We have limited space available so we can accept maximum 22 applications.

FUMOGENI is kindly supported by Formech, UK

Our first guest will be Elizabeth Povinelli

Elizabeth Povinelli’s writing has focused on developing a critical theory of late liberalism that would support an anthropology of the otherwise. Informed primarily by the traditions of American pragmatism and continental immanent theory and grounded in the circulation of values, materialities, and socialities. This potential theory has unfolded primarily from within a sustained relationship with Indigenous colleagues in north Australia and across five books, numerous essays, and four films with the Karrabing Film Collective. Geontologies: A Requiem to Late Liberalism was the 2017 recipient of the Lionel Trilling Book Award. Karrabing films were awarded the 2015 Visible Award and the 2015 Cinema Nova Award Best Short Fiction Film, Melbourne International Film Festival and have shown internationally including in the Berlinale Forum Expanded, Sydney Biennale; MIFF, the Tate Modern, documenta-14, and the Contour Biennale.
