SUSAN SCHUPPLI is an artist and cultural theorist who completed her doctoral studies in Research Architecture and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2009. Her thesis is:
ENTANGLED MATTERS: Analogue Futures & Political Pasts
Theorised as an “ontology of the output”, this thesis project conceptually repurposes media machines in order to activate new or alternate entanglements between historical media artefacts and events. Although the particular circumstances that produced these materials may have changed, the project asks why these media artefacts might still be a matter of concern. What is their relevance for thinking media operations and their related socio-political contexts today?
Her new work organised around the methodological concept of "forensic imagination" continues to deal with the ways in which the speak acts of material evidence (artefacts/things) can offer alternate witness statements to the histories into which they had previously been embedded; producing, in effect, different socio-political configurations.
