Brent Dickinson: Performative Lecture
November 6 at 7pm to 8:30pm
In addition to the exhibition, Dickinson will be performing a lecture about a crypto-fictional organization called the Marcel Maus Hermeneutical Think Tank. The MMHTT is an organization that has hacked Dickinson’s site (site here refers to both his website as well as his body and mind), and has installed him against his will as the MMHTT artist-in-residence. The MMHTT project is an ongoing project that will continue to develop until after the end of the world.
One of the ways Dickinson presents information about the MMHTT is in the form of performative lectures where often the audience is not “in on” the crypto-fictional nature of the content. An example of such a presentation can be found here. For the Cuesta community, Dickinson will be performing a lecture titled Marcel Maus Hermeneutical Think Tank presents: Speculative Engastration- The Business of Eating and Being Eaten in Infinite Space.
