WRITING OUT LOUD
JON MIKEL EUBA
Writing Out Loud reúne las transcripciones de ocho conferencias del artista Jon Mikel Euba que fueron traducidas en vivo del español al inglés durante el curso Action unites, words divide (On Praxis, An Unstated Theory) en el Dutch Art Institute (DAI) en Arnhem. Las conferencias se presentaron a invitación de If I Cant Dance a lo largo del año académico 2014-2015. Los textos resultantes se sitúan dentro de un proyecto más amplio de escritura del artista, que lleva practicando desde hace casi una década, donde desarrolla un proyecto centrado en la escritura cuyo objetivo es definir una praxis que devenga teoría técnica.
Writing Out Loud is a publication that brings together the transcriptions of eight lectures by the artist Jon Mikel Euba that were live translated from Spanish to English during the course Action unites, words divide (On praxis, an unstated theory) at the DAI. The lectures were delivered across the academic year 2014 2015 at the invitation of If I Cant Dance. They sit within a larger writing-centred project by the artist that he has pursued for almost a decade, through which he aims to define a form of praxis that could evolve into a technical theory.
Eubas writing-centred project stems from his disengaged relation to writing as a set of conventions, which emerge from his need to liberate himself from any fidelity to the written form, and through which he articulates a resistance by adopting a performative approach. Through his writing he works not to achieve a refined literary or essayistic outcome, but rather writes from his position as an artist I order to produce and communicate a methodology firmly situated in artistic practice. Eubas writings are written as scores to perform, with each beginning as notes, which are further elaborated through a process intimately linked to the act of reading out loud in front of others.
