何不再问 Why not ask again?

Raqs媒体小组

经过良久的记录、编辑和调整,这本第十一届上海双年展的画册终于在展览结束后整理完成并出版。记录了全部展览详细信息,作品简介,图片,以及众多问题,成为展览结束后一段不终结的回顾。

关于第11届上海双年展“何不再问:正辩,反辩,故事”:在当下高度互联的全球语境之中,第11届上海双年展将着重于探寻“南南合作”的可能性,意图去呈现一个超越东西分野的具有发散性的艺术世界。集研究、创作、策展于一体的Raqs媒体小组表示:本届双年展不仅是一系列探索和研究的小结,更是新视角和新观点的起航。“何不再问?何不从一个问题或者欲望的原点、末端、中点开始发问(因为‘提问’的任务既是提出问题也是唤起欲求)?”这段文字,是Raqs媒体小组受“印度新电影” 运动先驱李维克•吉哈塔克的作品《正辩,反辩,故事》(1974)启发而书,它锚定了本届上海双年展的策展构思。在电影的结尾,主人公一位酗酒成瘾的知识分子,陷入了一群逃难的农民与学生反抗军之中。面对他们的提议与异议、正辩与反辩,主人公给出了自己的故事、回忆和炽热的困惑。在Raqs的构想中,作为本届上海双年展主角的艺术家,就如同一个寓言中的人物,抛出各种谜团和动机,提出必要、艰难而动人的问题,从而转化了他们自己所处的那个故事。“正辩,反辩,故事”三者就像物理学中的”三体问题”:同一空间中的两个物体,以一种可预测的方式互动,二者间的相互引力掌控着它们围绕对方旋转“而一旦有第三个物体闯入,情况便变得复杂而无法预测。霎那间,似乎一切都可以变化”。

The 11th edition of the Shanghai event will emphasize the possibilities of South-South dialogue within the current scenario of a highly interconnected world. In doing so, it will seek to present artistic and discursive visions that go beyond and challenge the conventional division of the world between ‘East’ and ‘West’. Raqs Media Collective, who straddle diverse roles in creative and curatorial work and research processes, envisage the forthcoming biennale to be a destination for many different kinds of exploration and investigation as well as a launching pad for new visions and ideas.

“Why not ask again? Why not begin at the beginning, or the end, or the middle of a question, or a desire (because the task of ‘asking’ can stand both for the posing of a question as well as for the awakening of a desire)?” This phrase, inspired by Raqs Media Collective’s reading of the Indian New Cinema movement pioneer Ritwik Ghatak’s film Jukti, Takko Ar Gappo (Maneuvers, Disputations and Stories) [1974] anchors the curatorial design of the forthcoming Shanghai Biennale. Towards the end of Ghatak’s film, the protagonist, an alcoholic intellectual, falls in with a band of fugitive peasant and student rebels. To their proposals and counter-proposals, their arguments and counter-arguments, the protagonist offers his stories, his reminders, and his incandescent confusions. The artist who Raqs imagine as a protagonist for the forthcoming Shanghai Biennale is like a figure in a fable who transforms the telling of the story he is in by presenting riddles and engines, by asking necessary, difficult and engaging questions. The triad – Maneuvers, Disputations and Stories – is like the three-body problem in physics. Two bodies in space interact in a manner that is predictable, with the dynamics of their mutual gravitational forces governing how they rotate around each other - “the moment a third body is introduced things get complicated and unpredictable. Suddenly, it appears as if everything can change”.
