Body of Knowledge Part III
September 23 –October 28
Opening Reception: Friday, September 23, 6 – 9 pm
Sue-C. Missy Canez Ryan T. Dunn LoVid Stephanie Simek and Robby Kraft Phillip Stearns
Glitch Studies, curated by Carl Diehl in association with Research Club, presents several artists who give the slip to the perceived limits of glitch art. Beyond the novelty of the happy accident, these artists mobilize varied media, methods and maneuvers, querying the durational dynamics of the initial glitch encounter. Puzzling the peripheries of established aesthetics, the artists in this exhibit pursue new opportunities for contemplation and wonderment. BODY OF KNOWLEDGE is a series of three exhibitions curated and presented by Research Club at galleryHOMELAND, sponsored in part by the Historic Ford Building, Widmer Brothers Brewing, and galleryHOMELAND.
This month’s brunch is on Sunday, September 25 from noon-3 pm. See you in the loading dock!
Featured speakers: Karl Anderson – Aquachoppers of C.H.U.N.K. 666
C.H.U.N.K. 666 is a mutant bike club and civic betterment society. We saw bikes apart, weld them together again, ride them, and destroy them. In our younger days we hosted large gladiatorial events; these days we go on rides, the most recent of which was an amphibious bike ride and camping trip to Ross Island.
Sara Badiali - The Reclamation Administration The Reclamation Administration is a website dedicated to the dissemination of information that prevents the unnecessary waste of construction and demolition materials through Building Material Reuse and Recycling. The RA is based in the Portland, Oregon Metro Region, but the focus is on all reclaiming and recycling of building materials news.
Carl Diehl - Glitch Studies Join the brains behind this month’s show at galleryHOMELAND for a tour of the exhibition.
Laura Moulton - Street Books I operate Street Books, a bicycle-powered mobile library for people who live outside. All summer I lent books to library patrons, and learned about their own stories. The project was initially funded with a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture council, but the plan is to continue to operate the library through the fall and winter.
Dustin Zemel - Recent Work Dustin Zemel is a video artist exploring concepts of media literacy through the re-contextualization of popular media. He is the founder of Grand Detour, a contemporary gallery, classroom, and microcinema dedicated to building a community around Portland’s burgeoning experimental media scene. He teaches classes on experimental techniques at NW Documentary.
What Philsophy Can Do For Artists
Join us for the last 2 classes of the exciting Phil102 (research-club.org/events/classes/what-philosophy-can-do-for-art)!
About the class: Vernon Carter leads the group in talking about the history of the rhizome idea that lies at the heart of Research Club itself. The idea that sprung out of the collaboration between Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari is itself a metaphor derived from biology: the root structure (rhizome, as Wikipedia will tell you, means ‘mass of roots’ in Greek) of plants like potatoes, hops, asparagus, ginger, and (a favorite of RC itself) aspen, shoots roots from nodes that connect into a network, though after Deleuze and Guattari get ahold of it the rhizome extends into spaces far beyond the topsoil, inspiring networked decentralized organizational structures that allow for seemingly unrelated pieces to form mutually beneficial wholes.
Join us Sunday afternoons every week at 3pm at galleryHomeland. (Note: We’re using P2PU.org, a free platform for self-organized education. You’ll have to register, but it’s quick.

IX) Deleuze and Guatarri: Rhizome – September 18 or what we are here
The introduction of 1000 Plateaus is probably one of the most widely read chunks of one of the most difficult books on the face of the earth. We’ll make sense of it, in the sense that Merleau-Ponty meant by sens. Becoming-rhizome is only the beginning, not ‘one of us’ but many together. Be fruitful and multiply, live with (not in) the word. Join us on the Plateau and get ready to jump to the next one!
X) Free Box. A Desiring Machine – September 25
or the keep portland weird routine This class will be field work in the realm of schizoanalysis, taking a look at a few of the desiring machines that make Portland Portland. Come wander through the streets and alleys of a great big hyper-complex rhizome that all of us are already part of. See your home town in a brand new way, and wrap up this journey with a micro-cosmic journey of your own. And!
First-hand Philosophy started August 17! We’ll be reading 1000 PLATEAUS. Sign up here: p2pu.org/en/groups/first-hand-philosophy/content/sign-up-for-classes-here/!
