Sammanfattning (abstract):
This text, which examines our relationships to objects or an object, was originally delivered as an oral presentation during a two-day symposium at the International Artists Studio Program in Stockholm (IASPIS) organized by the research group Ontheconditionsofproduction. For this event, the organizers sent out a call for contributions addressing “cultural production relative to the conditions of production in contemporary capitalist society,” My decision to participate and the content of the text I presented initially arose from my interest in individuals and their production in contemporary capitalist society, but more importantly, it was driven by the way this subject matter is often presented. Despite rethinking terms and conditions, most depictions of individuals under capitalism—or more importantly for this discussion, post-Fordist capitalism, which describes an economy of information in which commodification has no limits—presents them as subjugated by some greater power, god, or thing that has complete dominion over all those under it. Though we yearn to move toward real emancipatory conditions, resistance always seems to be housed within a dialectic of us against some alien force. This text is an attempt to escape the bind perpetuated by ever-present guilt and superhuman projections, by starting at the level of the object, and rethinking emancipation from its position. It aims to locate or just imagine an object’s voice independent from ours, rather than see it as only being subjected to our processes.
