Speculative Ruinology - Interpretation as a Mode of Survival
|Author||Václav Janoščík, Boris Ondreička|
Bombarded by fragments of images, problems close or remote, conflicting perspectives and always-already biased options – interpretation became not justa tool or specific method, it is an activity through which we live and realize our identities. Such necessity and dominance of interpretation calls for different political vision or identification. We, artists, activists, para-academics, writers, researchers and cultural agents thus form an interpretive class. The book Speculative Ruinology: Interpretation as a mode of Survival presents a first book project of Class of Interpretation, founded by Boris Ondreička and Václav Janoščík and based on the Academy of Fine Arts, Prague.
