O različnih (pre)potrebnih kartografskih uporih, 2. del

Aktualno-politična novica
12. 11. 2014 - 20.00

Ker bo današnja oddaja nekoliko drugačna od ustaljenih, vam na začetku podajamo nekaj navodil, ki bodo služila kot kompas za natančnejše umeščanje vsebine v širši kontekst.

Oddaja je sestavljena iz dveh medijev, radijskega etra in medmrežja. Internet v tem primeru deluje predvsem kot razširitev, medtem ko vsebina v etru prosto plava in išče natančnejšo umeščenost. S sprotnim poslušanjem in spremljanjem spletne strani pod rubriko Zeitgeist, bo tako manjko koordinat znotraj zvočne vsebine dopolnjen z množico njih v presežnem interneta.

Vsaka izjava v zvočnem delu oddaje, razen uvodne, bo jasno ločena od ostalih, pri čemer služi krajša, ki napoveduje daljšo, kot povezovalna točka med zvočno in spletno vsebino. Hkrati pa tako ena kot druga lahko delujeta tudi sami zase.


a) ''...hegemonic kind of construction of abstraction...''

 b) ''...political with a small p, I would say...''



(Africa Notcolonised)


c) ''...we kind of hand over so much of our own kind of agency and autonomy to this big kind of overarching structures, navigation systems...''

d) ''...using technologies in a very very different ways, very interesting ways...''



e) ''...wiggly mental maps...''

f) ''...mapping impossible places...''

g) ''...mapping in whatever form kind of generates stories an narratives...''




h) ''...looking at films fundamentally from...what they can tell us about the evnironments and the spaces that were inhabitet at that time...''



i) ''...the question about what a map is I think is interesting in so far as that it does open up a question of what it can do...''

To sem govoril, morda za tretjo oddajo;)

Hakim Bey, Temporary Autonomous Zone (TAZ)

"The second generating force behind the TAZ springs from the historical development I call "the closure of the map." The last bit of Earth unclaimed by any nation-state was eaten up in 1899. Ours is the first century without terra incognita, without a frontier. Nationality is the highest principle of world governance--not one speck of rock in the South Seas can be left open, not one remote valley, not even the Moon and planets. This is the apotheosis of "territorial gangsterism." Not one square inch of Earth goes unpoliced or untaxed...in theory.

The "map" is a political abstract grid, a gigantic con enforced by the carrot/stick conditioning of the "Expert" State, until for most of us the map becomes the territory- -no longer "Turtle Island," but "the USA." And yet because the map is an abstraction it cannot cover Earth with 1:1 accuracy. Within the fractal complexities of actual geography the map can see only dimensional grids. Hidden enfolded immensities escape the measuring rod. The map is not accurate; the map cannot be accurate.

So--Revolution is closed, but insurgency is open. For the time being we concentrate our force on temporary "power surges," avoiding all entanglements with "permanent solutions."

And--the map is closed, but the autonomous zone is open. Metaphorically it unfolds within the fractal dimensions invisible to the cartography of Control. And here we should introduce the concept of psychotopology (and -topography) as an alternative "science" to that of the State's surveying and mapmaking and "psychic imperialism." Only psychotopography can draw 1:1 maps of reality because only the human mind provides sufficient complexity to model the real. But a 1:1 map cannot "control" its territory because it is virtually identical with its territory. It can only be used to suggest, in a sensegesture towards, certain features. We are looking for "spaces" (geographic, social, cultural, imaginal) with potential to flower as autonomous zones--and we are looking for times in which these spaces are relatively open, either through neglect on the part of the State or because they have somehow escaped notice by the mapmakers, or for whatever reason. Psychotopology is the art of dowsing for potential TAZs.

The closures of Revolution and of the map, however, are only the negative sources of the TAZ; much remains to be said of its positive inspirations. Reaction alone cannot provide the energy needed to "manifest" a TAZ. An uprising must be for something as well."
