Spectralization of History, Spectralization of the Image, Spectralization of Europe
In the context of the relation between history, activism, the image and capital, Marina Grzinic outlines some topics that deal with capital, gender and positioning, i.e. with theory and history. The principal question is what kind of changes we can detect today in these paradigms, and, if possible, to rethink some old and new relations between theory, art practice and political activism.
On February 2001, Marina Grzinic was invited to give a conference at MACBA in the context of the seminar Phantom History. Image, Politics, History celebrated as part of the film maker Pere Portabella's exhibition Histories without a Plot. The lecture was entitled “Spectralization of the History, spectralization of the Image, spectralization of Europe”.
