Indeterminancy – Art, Philosophy & Curating Today

9 October 2015
Post Graduate Programme in Curating, ZHdK


With the death of God, the subject loses orientation yet at once also gains new leeway, understanding itself as a player-subject whose future is more contingent and hence more unpredictable. It opens up to happenstance and indeterminacy. It gains access to its realities as products of universal indefiniteness. The indefinite is what is not limited without therefore being eternal in the theological sense of that word. That is the concept of infinity in the horizon of the discovery of finite subjectivity: that nothing seems absolutely determined.
