Moment for pro­du­cing noise and dis­course in the insti­tu­tional con­text from Kuva/Tila to Kon­st­fack organ­ized by Jussi Koitela, Tuukka Haapakorpi, Saara Han­nus, Maarit Mus­tonen, Megan Snowe and Johannes Vartola.

The prob­lem is not for people speak­ing “dif­fer­ent lan­guages,” lit­er­ally or fig­ur­at­ively, to under­stand each other, any more than it is for “lin­guistic break­downs” to be over­come by the inven­tion of new lan­guages. The prob­lem is know­ing whether the sub­jects who count in the inter­locu­tion “are” or “are not,” whether they are speak­ing or just mak­ing a noise. It is know­ing whether there is a case for see­ing the object they des­ig­nate as the vis­ible object of the con­flict. It is know­ing whether the com­mon lan­guage in which they are expos­ing a wrong is indeed a com­mon language.
