Abstract:

"The gamut of intellectual and imaginative; performative, visual, and poetic experiments and interventions in this volume enact poethical responses as seemingly divergent as decolonizing architecture in a Palestinian refugee camp while rethinking socio-political geometries of the global refugee crisis; Black Dada vis-à-vis Black Lives Matter; misogyny as Feminist Responsibility Project; the art of If; Miles Davis's and another's s'posin; and of course Fall Guys. The Supposium is a polyvocal attempt to edge byond default geometries of attention as we address the state of emergency that has become our space-time on this planet. The implicitly conversational sequence is homage and play on Plato's Symposium - Socratic dialogue on the nature of love (erōs) with its humor, gravitas, and improbably feminine swerve out of a prototypic masculine culture. The culminating, collaborative poem SWERVE was procedurally composed of language from participants in a 2-14 supposium at MoMA. Forms of love uniquely expressed in the passionate work of engaged poets, artists, curators, and assorted intellectuals are everywhere manifest"--Inside front flap.
