For last week’s presentation in my Conceptualisms, Conspiracies, and Counterhistories course I screened some assorted clips that I thought might offer a kind of “conspiracy collage” including the following: the artist Mike Kelley on the notion of “Art and Fucking Things Up.” And some sections of the South Bank Show program on dystopian sci-fi writer J.G. Ballard (part 3) and (part 4). Filmmaker Kirby Ferguson has started a web series called This is not a Conspiracy Theory, and also speaks about the project at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas. Theorist Boris Groys offered his perspective on contemporary art for a segment of the film Future of Art. And closed off with a few minutes of video artist Ryan Trecartin’s P.OPULAR S.KY (section ish).
