2020_1_winter; Disobey Everything (!)

2020 Winter MAAT lab Study: 2020.01.13 – 17  (MAAT BOOK 28) 
Disobey Everything (!) 
Dear my researching comrades, 
Another winter is in front of us. 
We have already disobeyed for a long time and so many times. We disobeyed our fathers and mothers, our teachers and professors, our schools and universities, and our states and their regimes. Surely, there has not been a certain real leader for disobeying, but only rhythm and rage underneath the disobedience. In the area of research, there has not been prominent real fighters of disobeying in fact, but certain trends and atmospheres. 
In this winter, we are following trajectories of theoretical and methodological disobediences in researching arts. We will look at the conventional, but not so traditional researching approaches of art history, and then, a little progressive critical studies based approaches. Finally, we will try to be heading to philosophical approaches. Then, we will read again the early approaches of our media art. We could not cover the whole texts and readings in a given time, and just try to cover them through preface, introduction, notes, etc. 
Create territories. Multiply zones of opacity. … Travel. Open our own lines of communication. - The Coming Insurrection
