code flow new and ongoing events and projects

Since January 2015, code flow has taken over running the art project space Corner College in Zurich.

In the meantime, we're putting this website on hold, or almost. If and when we do projects outside of Corner College we will document them on this website. For the moment, most of our energy goes into making things happen at Corner College.

22 November 2014, 15h00 at Gasthaus zum Bären, Bärengasse 22, 8001 Zürich.

I never get what I want (To the proliferation of letters and a personal disbanding towards the repetitiveness of symptoms) – a public intervention by Daniel Marti

“I never get what I want” is an intervention by Daniel Marti concerned with the Museum Bärengasse’s public urban space, in dialog with Dimitrina Sevova and her exhibition proposal for “Unsettling the Setting. Playing, Plying, Squatting // Operating, Owning, Occupying – or rather?” The intervention ends in a performative discussion between Daniel (the artist), Dimitrina (the invited and inviting curator), and the audience. “I never get what I want” is part of the curatorial proposal by Dimitrina Sevova,

an Exhibition that envelops its double unExhibition. Cartography of Excess – The (re) turn of the Uncanny *

* uncanny: corresponds to German “unheimlich” (literally: unhomely), an estrangement of “heimlich” (literally: homely), meaning clandestine, secretive, furtive. Theorized by Ernst Jentsch (1906) and later by Sigmund Freud (1919), with reference to E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Sandman, and later re-read by Hélène Cixous.

The intervention will start at 15:00h in front of Gasthaus zum Bären, follow Bärengasse and Talackerstrasse to Paradeplatz, and from there, via Bleicherweg reach Schanzengrabenpromenade. If the weather is good, it will continue on to the park of Völkerkundemuseum, and return to Bärengasse along Basteiplatz. The bad-weather route would return to Gasthaus zum Bären straight from where Schanzengrabenpromenade and Bärengasse cross.

The two events at Kunsthof on 19 and 20 July, Kunsthof Casino and Kunsthof Playschool, are a double homage to Michel Foucault and Jorge Luis Borges. To Michel Foucault’s The Birth of Biopolitics: Lectures at the College de France (1978-79) on the liberal art of government and modern governmental technology in which Foucault focuses on two forms of neo-liberalism: German post-War liberalism and the liberalism of the Chicago School. And to Jorge Luis Borges’ short story The Lottery in Babylon (1941), in which with the power of fictional ambiguity he tells the story of the Game of chance as the Game of life with its one bio-natural law determining the cosmos.

DJ Set by Dott at Kunsthof after 22:30

The event is composed of urban interventions, drifting walks, strolls and performative situations and other means of cacophonic molecular machinic becoming, affected by dramatizing and diagrammatizing practices of the political forms of coordination mapping singularities. The event is oriented towards the politics of location and micropolitical locomotion as an a-signifying process animating the vital multiplicity of organization of ethico-aesthetic living forms.
