This autumn School Without Center*Moscow hosts D’EST as well as a permanent video channel of screening chapter #3 Cosmos Cosmetics: Unsettling Memoryscapes and Corpofictions in the exhibition at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. On October 6 and 7, D’EST chapter #3 as well as chapter #4 The Body as an Indexical Reader will be launched by their curators in conversation with invited respondents, artists and audiences from Moscow. Cosmos Cosmetics are concerned with political protocols and architectures, bodies and phantasms that surface from underneath the skin of post-socialist urban spaces. The Body as an Indexical Reader examines the body as an alliance of states, as an organless, cognitive-capitalist, cerebral network, as a corporeal reading instrument of past, former socialist indices, but also as a genuine place of affective encounters and material practices after 1989/1991.

Free admission. From October 8th onwards chapter #3 and #4 will be accessible online for all registered users.
