Exploring Commonism A New Aesthetics of the Real 

Edited with text by  Nico Dockx & Pascal Gielen

There is a new ideology in the making: “commonism,” which focuses on the reciprocating movements of the commons (i.e., the cultural and natural resources accessible to and held by all members of a society). After half a century of neoliberalism, leftist thinkers are increasingly excited about the possibilities of holding and sharing resources in common. But how are the commons constituted in society? How do they shape the reality of our living together? Exploring Commonism attempts to map these new ideas in reflections from acclaimed artists, architects, collectives, activists and theorists such as:

Walter van Andel, Michel Bauwens, Giuliana Ciancio, Futurefarmers, Lara Garcia, Harry Gamboa Jr., Liam Gillick, Eric Kluitenberg, Rudi Laermans, The Land Foundation, Sonja Lavaert, Peter Linebaugh, Matteo Lucchetti, Pat McCarthy, Antonio Negri, Hanka Otte, Recetas Urbanas, Jörn Schafaff, Stavros Stavrides, Evi Swinnen, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Maria Francesca De Tullio, Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas, Louis Volont and Judith Wielander.

Xoloitzcuintli Doppelgänger and other stories by Harry Gamboa Jr.

Xoloitzcuintli Doppelgänger and other stories by Harry Gamboa Jr. explores the stratospheric and subterranean aspects of perception via fiction regarding 21st Century urban life. Encounters with riots, fluctuating landscapes, and unidentified phantoms that roam the streets of México City, Berlin, and Los Angeles are revealed as dreamscapes. Stark humor confronts surreal moments where Aztec realms play with contemporary Chicano reflections.   Xoloitzcuintli Doppelganger and other stories serve as a literary afterimage that will persist long after reading the last page.

Roble Gym  |  75 minutes including Q&A

Imagery of Asco (1972-1985), Virtual Vérité (2005 – 2017), and current performance works will accompany this lecture that focuses on the recent demolition of the iconic Los Angels 6th Street Bridge, the confluence of freeways, and the familiar nondescript locations that often serve as a starting point for anonymous journeys across an ocean of undulating asphalt. The swirling milieu of multiple cultures/languages of Los Angeles are in perpetual collision/melding/erasure as sudden tectonic shifts reset the clock towards countdown to consciousness. The historical relevance of events and places are subject to system loss of memory.

In 1972, I co-founded Asco (Spanish for nausea), an East Los Angeles-based artist collective that included core members: Willie Herrón, Gronk, Patssi Valdez, and oftentimes, Humberto Sandoval. Asco emerged from the intense politics of the 1960’s Chicano Movement but also from the hybridity of 20th Century angst/determination that would propel all American youth to question cultural norms, the Vietnam War, and modern to post-modern media influences.

The Asco artists grew up in 1950s-1970s Los Angeles under a shroud of fallout-laden smog that tinted the urbanscape so that mass-media negative stereotypes would stand out in flagrant false relief against the reality of thriving cultures, which were moving quickly towards a vibrant amalgam of languages, customs, and visions. Decoy Gang War Victim employed various cinematic techniques to create an image that would reverberate and crossover into mainstream media consciousness by being presented on local television as having been the actual documentation of the last gang member to be killed in an absurd fait accompli that would contradict the propaganda campaign of major newspapers, which were promoting gang warfare. First Supper (After A Major Riot) was staged and photographed in the exact location where a major police riot had taken place and peaceful protesters who were mourning the assassination of acclaimed English/Spanish language journalist Ruben Salazar were brutally attacked. The site had been under strict condemnation by the authorities, but Asco declared it to be a place of celebration and a feast for the eyes.

The use of our 1970s youthful bodies to create art was in absolute opposition to what was expected of us by a society that often employed harsh methods of oppression, poor educational systems, synchronized narratives that often-portrayed Chicana/o youth in a dismal light despite the long history of active engagement in generating scholarship, impressive creative works, and with full-fledged heroic defense of the United States during time of war and other historical situations. To become self-defined and visually assertive in photographic form depicted a new version that would require complex interpretations. X’s Party and Instant Mural consists of private/public encounters that push the boundaries of persistence and erasure. The absurdity of self-denial is made manifest in A La Mode.

Asco engaged in numerous actions and produced many works during its existence (1972-1985) while being excluded from exhibitions and discourse of official contemporary art canon. In 2011, Los Angeles County Museum of Art presented Asco: Elite of the Obscure, a major retrospective, that served to introduce Asco to an eclectic national and international audience.

Harry Gamboa Jr. – The Asco Years is presented here for a 21st Century viewership that has so much to consider and to reflect upon while taking a closer look at what was and what is currently taking place in our world.

Harry Gamboa Jr. – Chicano Male Unbonded Photography Series
Excerpt from essay COLA 96 97 98 exhibition catalogue (pg. 26)
written by
Robert Byer

Gamboa’s work has continued in this “social surrealist” vein, driven by a need to distort and magnify the absurdity, chaos, and violence of contemporary urban experience.  As in Gamboa’s other work, the Chicano Male Unbonded series rhetorically exaggerates and mocks stereotypical perceptions of ethnic identity as a response to his awareness of the complexities of negotiating and affirming it.  The strategy of the photographs is simultaneously to acknowledge and counteract the image of the Chicano male as signifier of urban danger and criminality, as menacing Other.  Gamboa poses and photographs his subjects in a way that seems to confirm or heighten such stereotypical connotations.  A sense of dangerous confrontation is evoked by a series of theatrical devices:  the men stand alone in deserted, dimly lit outdoor urban settings at night; with arms crossed or in their pockets, they look directly and unsmilingly into the camera; a low camera angle endows them with a presence that looms menacingly over us.  These characters of the urban setting and of self-presentation guide the viewer to reductively read them as signifiers of the character of the photo graphed subjects, as identifying marks of Chicano maleness.  This reading is subverted by the titles and captioned biographies of the photographed subjects, who are identified as academics, artists, actors, lawyers and other professionals, pillars of the community not the potential muggers they at first appear to be.  Another look discloses quite ordinary dress and unremarkable physiognomies.  The idea of “the Chicano male” is displaced finally by a series of individuals who do not exhibit any obvious visible qualities which connects or defines them as “Chicano,” a quality contained by rather than containing them.  His subjects, then, are “unbonded” both in our initial sense of them being not yet bonded (that is, criminally dangerously, on the loose, beyond the control of the authorities), and in our final sense of their being freed from such “bonded” images and from the bonding performed by such images.
