This Saturday, February 21 will be held collective educational meeting
"Contemporary Art. Unappropriated Course." based on the principles of
libertarian (free) pedagogy. Meeting 8. Who is an author?

The meeting will consist of two parts:

Part 1. A paraphrase - presentation and discussion around the essays of
Michel Foucault, "What is the author?", where, according to Foucault, the
question about the author is no longer a "Who?" and replaced by the question
"What?". You will learn what are, according to Michel Foucault, the main
characteristics of the author′s function and what would culture look like
whithout the author function, what is the difference between the author′s
name and the specific (proper) name and other issues and problems covered
in this essay.
Discussion Questions: Why biography of the author goes into the
background, and the interest focuses on the discursive practices themselves
that make the work possible?
Tatiana Tsvelodub reports.

Part 2. You have an ability to declare and present other points of view and
opinions about the author, on the theme of the course - "Who is the author?"
in a global context and in Ukrainian cut. Or continue the discussion around
the essays of Michel Foucault, "What is the author?".
