The Third Part of the Third Measure (2017) crea un incontro con il minimalismo militante del compositore, pianista e cantante d’avanguardia Julius Eastman. The Third Part of the Third Measure si concentra su ciò che The Otolith Group descrive come “l’esperienza di guardare in chiave d’ascolto”, invocando sentimenti politici di sfida e la pratica collettiva della costruzione del movimento che partecipa alle lotte globali contro l’autoritarismo neoreazionario. The Third Part of the Third Measure invita gli spettatori a partecipare all’esemplare estetica estatica del radicalismo nero che Eastman stesso descrisse come “carica di onore, integrità e coraggio illimitato”.

Fondato da Anjali Sagar e Kodwo Eshun, The Otolith Group crea film, installazioni, opere audio e performance ispirati a metodi tratti dall’estraniazione cognitiva generata dalla fantascienza. Le loro opere cinematografiche e video incorporano estetiche saggistiche post-lens che esplorano le anomalie temporali, le inversioni antropiche e l’alienazione sintetica del post-umano, l’inumano, il non-umano e l’anti-umano.

The Third Part of the Third Measure (2017) creates an encounter with the militant minimalism of avant-garde composer, pianist and vocalist Julius Eastman. The Third Part of the Third Measure focuses on what The Otolith Group describes as ‘an experience of watching in the key of listening’, invoking political feelings of defance and the collective practice of movement building that participates in the global struggles against neoreactionary authoritarianism. The Third Part of the Third Measure invites viewers to attend to exemplary ecstatic aesthetics of black radicalism that Eastman himself once described as ‘full of honour, integrity and boundless courage’.

Founded by Anjali Sagar and Kodwo Eshun, The Otolith Group creates films, installations, audioworks and performances informed by methods drawn from the cognitive estrangement generated by science fiction. Their lm and video works incorporate post lens-based essayistic aesthetics that explore the temporal anomalies, anthropic inversions and synthetic alienation of the posthuman, the in-human, the non-human and the anti-human.
