Casco Issues XI: An Ambigious Case

Main Menu

Titled An Ambiguous Case, Issue XI has been edited by Emily Pethick, Marina Vishmidt and Tanja Widmann, and was developed through the process of a conversation on the subject of openness. This inquiry led into a discussion around a number of related terms – criticality, fractures, ambivalence, ambiguity, undecidability and conflict, to name a few – as well as distinctions between recognising openness as a condition, and practising, or doing, openness. The editors opened this question out to a number of artists and designers, including Babak Afrassiabi and Nasrin Tabatabai (Pages), Gregory Bateson, Gregg Bordowitz, Judith Hopf, Jutta Koether, Runo Lagomarsino, Agency (Kobe Matthys), Metahaven, and The Otolith Group.  
The publication also includes a conversation between the editors and two ‘Metalogues’ by British anthropologist & sociologist Gregory Bateson; conversational speech acts that could be seen as creating a form of openness, producing moments of conflict, suspension and indeterminacy.
