Please join us at Publication Studio Vancouver for the launch of the publication Due to Injuries….
This book extends and completes the eponymous exhibition by Vancouver-based artists Brady Cranfield and Jamie Hilder, presented at 221A in the fall of 2013. Alongside new artwork in the gallery, Cranfield and Hilder organized a public lecture by Italian Marxist theorist Franco “Bifo” Berardi, co-presented by Simon Fraser University’s Vancity Office for Community Engagement. Berardi’s lecture was followed by a series of responses by Enda Brophy (Assistant Professor, School of Communication at SFU), Steve Collis (Professor, Department of English at SFU), Jaleh Mansoor (Assistant Professor, Department of Art History, Visual Art & Theory at UBC), and poet and activist Cecily Nicholson.
Due to Injuries… includes a transcription of Berardi’s lecture and his answers to questions from the audience, as well as the texts given by the four respondents. Examining the cultural expressions of finance and economics, Due to Injuries… follows a trajectory in Cranfield and Hilder work that engages what they refer to as the Economist’s Aesthetic: a mode of encountering and representing the world through the forms, operations, and priorities of the economy.
Due to Injuries… is published by 221A and Publication Studio Vancouver.
