Rab-Rab – Journal for Political and Formal Inquiries in Art. Issue 2.

This issue of Rabrab comes in volumes A and B, about 500 pages altogether.

Class Struggle Reverberations
In the second issue of Rab-Rab we will deal with the issue of noise. Departing from our programme based on the understanding of art practice as a confrontation between formal and political inquiries, our aim in this issue is to use noise as the name for this difficult, disturbing, loud and coercive exploration. In many cases the formal and political aspects of noise are two separate things: the former is seen as an issue of information or perception, whereas the latter is usually reduced to a metaphor of spontaneity. But if we change these parameters of discussing the noise from measurable coefficients of failed communication, or from elusive metaphors of contingencies, towards the conceptual references related to ideology and class struggles, then what is understood as noise turns into something else. It can become a valid concept of inquiry, refusing to be pinpointed to conventional academic banalities or to silly phenomenological artistic fantasies immersed in experience.
