This lecture was held on 7 September 2011 at Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Castello 5252, Venice as part of the programme 'The State of Things' as organised by the Office for Contemporary Art Norway.
"Although some have argued that the politics of the street has been replaced by new media politics, it seems that the public sphere within which politics takes place is now defined by a specific mode of bodies interacting with media. Hannah Arendt once argued that there could be no exercise of freedom without the creation of a 'space of appearance' and even 'a right to appear'. How do we understand those new forms of democratic insurgency that form alliances that are not in coalitional forms? Who is the embodied 'we' on the street transported through media, and yet in place and at risk?"
