My current research in the Collegium focuses on political aspirations of contemporary avant-garde and experimentalism. The question is whether the meaningful localization of universalistic avant-garde is possible and how this "other experimentalism" acts as a critique of both cosmopolitical late-modern avant-garde and liberal capitalistic regime. The question is posed within the case study of Estonian movement ethnofuturism and related phenomena.

 

Research interests include

  • Contemporary relevance of historical avant-garde
  • Philosophical and theoretical background of avant-garde ethos
  • Politics and poetics of radical arts

 

Current topics (2011–2012)

  • Ethnofuturism as critique of European avant-garde
  • The concept and genealogy of `experimentalism`
  • George Bataille`s idea of revolution
  • `Nothingness` and `active nihilism` as experimental topoi
