The Politics of Friendship

 - The Politics of Friendship
A collaborative project initiated by Anicka Yi, Jordan Lord, Lise Soskolne and Carissa Rodriguez, based on Mal Ahem and Moira Weigel's viral essay and on Derrida's Politics of Friendship.
On July 9, 2013, the web journal The New Inquiry released “Further Materials toward a Theory of the Man-Child” by Mal Ahern and Moira Weigel, and the essay went viral (http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/further-materials-toward-a-theory-of-the-man-child). Serving up more than one version of what or who possibly lurks behind every Young-Girl (PDF: http://libcom.org/files/jeune-fille.pdf), the essay articulated a term of engagement rampant not only in academia where the authors circulate, but endemic as well in the worlds of contemporary art and its structures of success– a disgracefully sexist field. A solo exhibition by Anicka Yi at STUDIOLO slated for September 2013 evolved into a collaborative project among Anicka Yi, Jordan Lord, Lise Soskolne and Carissa Rodriguez. Yi and Lord's reading of Derrida's The Politics of Friendship became the grounds for a related conversation about responsibility, call and response. The group asked others to respond to Ahern and Weigel's essay in the form of a poster, image, or text to be compiled into a publication.
Edited by Anicka Yi, Jordan Lord, Lise Soskolne, Carissa Rodriguez.
