Lezing & masterclass met Daniel Rourke

In 2015 gaven Morehshin Allahyari en Daniel Rourke het 'The 3D Additivist Manifesto,' uit, een oproep om de 3D-printer tot haar uiterste grenzen te drijven en daarbuiten, naar het rijk van de speculatie, de provocatie en de curiositeit. Projecten die daarop reageerden werden later gepubliceerd in 'The 3D Additivist Cookbook'.

In het kader van de Shiv Integer tentoonstelling, nodigt iMAL Daniel uit voor een lezing over het Manifesto + Cookbook en voor een tweedaagse masterclass.

About #Additivism

The 3D printer is a profound metaphor for our times. A technology for channeling creative endeavour, through digital processes, into the layering of raw matter excavated from ancient geological eras. Considered as a tool for art, design and engineering, and gesturing towards a forthcoming era of synthetic chemistry and biological augmentation, 3D fabrication technologies are already a site of common exchange between disciplines and material modalities. 3D fabrication can be thought of as the critical framework of #Additivism: a movement that aims to disrupt material, social, computational, and metaphysical realities through provocation, collaboration, and ‘weird’ / science fictional thinking.

#Additivism is a portmanteau of additive and activism, gesturing to the scale at which new forms of action and intervention take place. Morehshin Allahyari & Daniel Rourke's Manifesto and Cookbook question whether it’s possible to change the world without also changing ourselves, and what the implications are of taking a position. They are concerned with critiquing the role ‘radical’ new technologies might have in these changes, from fablabs, workshops, and classrooms, through to social, ecological, and global scales.

Allahyari & Rourke embrace the 3D Printer in the same way that Donna Haraway embraced the figure of the Cyborg in her influential text A Cyborg Manifesto (1983). By considering the 3D printer as a technology for remodeling thought into profound, and often nightmarish, new shapes #Additivism aims to expose in-betweens, empower the powerless, and question the presupposed.
