The Chapel, Union Theological Seminary

 

On April 8th, 2014, in the Chapel of Union Theological Seminary, artist/cultural engineer Michael Dudeck will undergo a lecture/performance unearthing a range of ancient and contemporary artifacts in a ceremonial excavation of themes. Dudeck will perform queer cartographies by bridging the theological and the contemporary in a mediatic sermon that is both ambiguous and stylistic. Dudeck will construct a live collage of themes ranging from  idolatry and mass media to Compulsory Heterosexuality in Eden to the flammability of the Religious Empire and the migration patterns of Faith. Part biographical, part curatorial, part archaeological, PUNC ARKÆOLOGY : QUEERING CARTOGRAPHIES will queer the modality of the lecture by challenging the precincts of Authorized Knowledge and Fiction.

 

6 Students from Dr. Brigitte Kahl’s Reading Ancient Sources and Images Class will also premiere the resurrection of an inactive UTS artifact through conceptual mediatic intervention. Presented in relation to Dudeck’s excavation, the artifact will be ritually re-imagined and positioned in the ritual laboratory invoked by the lecture/performance.

Funding for Michael Dudeck's residency has been generously provided by Concordia University International
