Contexter vs. Discoursor is a 45 min performance and a pseudo-lecture showing those who create the art context, and those who create the art discourse and then implement it as a disciplinary measurement. The title is an allusion to pop-culture's Alien vs. Predator. The Contexter and the Discoursor through this performance are ironically shown as some monsters of aggressive nature who actively impose themselves to the public life and thinking.
The piece takes its references from Foucault’s “Discipline and Punish”, but trough them it reflects on the institutions constituted and sustained by the people who impose critical thinking. The story unfolds in few layers trough The Curatables - a set of objects collected and shown during the piece, This performance is about all of you/us who create the scene and discipline (trough) the language we use by keeping the eye on everyone who acts/talks even slightly differently, so we can expedite them into the non-academic cosmos forever, with a zero chance for return.
