Regrette Etcetera
Club Cultures, edited by Meta/Regrette Etcetera is a new site now seeking links, articles, uploads, film, suggestions…

Club Cultures is set up to function as an accumulator and archive of more interesting critical writing & documentary work on Electronic Dance Music (EDM) and associated underground cultures, privileging work with a materialist/structural lens. Club Cultures aims to deepen our thinking and strengthen our practice around cultural and artistic politics beyond the scope of, and additive to, conversations around identity politics, cultural appropriation, and ‘subculture’.

Club Cultures (the working draft title) is currently under construction at:

http://clubcultures.wordpress.com/

Broad provisional topic areas thus far include:

- Labour/work/capitalism: EDM via historical materialism/Marxism, new media/distribution forms, the labour crisis in EDM production, service and affective labour in EDM.

- Radical Urban geographies: Revanchist, neoliberal and global-local urbanisms and governance re EDM cultures, Internet geopolitics, Datalands & the Global South etc

- Countercultural institutions: Alternative infrastructures and economies, utopian and future-oriented drives and failures, organizing, ‘free culture’.

- Race: Critical race in EDM cultures, histories, afrofuturisms, cultural labour/capital and transmission, EDM as infrastructure, Western/Northern cultural imperialism.

- Drugs: Narcomaterialism, labour/hegemonic temporalities, Policing/surveillance, Capital, affect, etc.

- EDM cultures and Queerness: Histories, Trajectories, formations, Margins/mainstreams, sexualities.

- EDM Theory & History: affect, temporalities, artistic practices, subcultures, situated reviews, socio-economic roots of genres.

- Gender: women in EDM, structural politics of space/access/economies

- Speculative fiction & theory: on or via EDM.

- Disability: HIV/AIDS, access, organizing.

- General categorized bibliography.

Materials are to be organized both by music genre and by politic.

RECENT:

“Regrette Etcetera”

by  HD video, 2012.

(Watch full-size HERE)

A maximalist video portrait featuring Regrette Etcetera on the relationship between identity, performance, architecture, economics and culture. The artist would like to thank Regrette Etcetera for her time, energy and honesty in participating in this interview.

This work was first shown as part of the solo exhibition “Containers of a Liquid Reality,” at Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney. “Containers of a Liquid Reality” documents the performance practices of participating individuals through the creation of interview-based documentaries. The work develops a dialogue about capitalist enclosure of physical space and about the way in which human bodies are treated within a capitalist system of economics. Through a discussion of their performance practices, the interviewees provide insights into the imaginative ways in which they redefine and reclaim their physicality. In addition to the video portraits, the exhibition features an architectural inversion that utilizes engineering principles first used in the creation of Gothic cathedrals. The exhibition as a whole explores the link between ideology and architecture.
