Videoarte, Flusser, Criatividade e Refugiados
Em agosto tive o prazer de apresentar com Thaís Inácio uma comunicação no congresso da Associação Brasileira de Estudos Germânicos sobre a coleção de vídeoaerte The Refugee Memorial e as relações entre criatividade e refúgio a partir do pensamento de Vilém Flusser.
Nas palavras de Flusser:
" In familiar surroundings, change is recognized, but not permanence. Whoever lives in a home finds change informative but considers permanence redundant. In exile, everything is unusual. Exile is an ocean of chaotic information. In it, the lack of redundancy does not allow the flood of information to be received as meaningful messages. Because it is unusual, exile is unlivable. One must transform the information whizzing around into meaningful messages, to make it livable. One must “process” the data. It is a question of survival: if one fails to transform the data, one is engulfed by the waves of exile. Data transformation is a synonym for creation. The expelled must be creative if he does not want to go to the dogs. "
