[the paper was delivered by DAMTP at the conference held in Museum Jorn in Silkeborg (Denmark) on May 23rd, 2014 and so to celebrate Asger Jorn‘s 100 year anniversary and the First Threesided Football World Cup organized for that occation]

The main task of the DAMTP contribution to Threesided Football Event of Silkeborg in May 2014 is to point at its basic Eurocentrism in the core of understanding Identity as singular projection of the Nation.

We therefore sugest to expand the understanding of Identity from binarity of Name-Nation into a triolectics of Letter-Name-Nation and further projecting into a triolectics between Nation-Name–Situation what shapes the Class consciousness. All the resulted bitriolectical plexus gives an oportunity to attack the concept of Nation not only individually from lettrist or situationist positions but also in alliances with Name (individuality) so tactically combining rationality of the laws and irrationality of the carnivalesque. But we sugest to go even further and from time to time to betray the bourgeois individuality in this triolectic game. This way of the game construction ensures elimination of basic features of bourgeois „serious culture“: symbolism and spectacle.

One more aspect on the eurocentrist identity-comprehension critique was provided by our fellow traveller from Cameroon. So far the Identity is a word of Latin origin we were seeking for the words of non european origin and one was found in an already almost forgotten language of people from some particular location in Cameroon. They have a word „N‘Dui-Mbén“ what literally means „down and up“, or simply „how you‘re dressed up and down“. There are different words used for identity in this part of Africa, but all have a meaning of whom they think they are. DAMTP takes it seriously as practical non-european approach in this area – we want to know personally who have produced our dress, we are in solidarity with their work, and we are seeking our garment to be related to the labor we do.

Diy cultures although it doesn't bill itself as such is an event that brings together the Self organisation of psychic workers rather than on any political or artistic basis. It was organised by members of OOMK, Other Asias and the Free Talha Ahsan campaign.



3VOL said they would go and take the DesaKalaPatraGraph as well as a pamphlet version of the graph and copies of the latest DAMTP paper #8 as well as their latest cd "4REAL". Most other members of DAMTP were at the Silkeborg three sided football tournament. By playing their games they were disrupting NATO's quantum nuclear experiments.


It took some time to install the graph at RichMix as the organisers had initially asked for it to take only one metre squared but on the day we were able to install a previous version from "Performance and Documentation", which was larger, with the help of rich mix lighting technician Chimu. We also met Squid early on who leant us some scissors. I later chatted to Squid about gender identity and was reminded about my own privilege under patriarchy as we discussed strategies for resisting gender roles.

Blanes muziejus po psichodarbininkų ir čerua genties dvasių dematerializavimo veiksmo


Lietuvoje ir vėl įsiplieskus diskusijai apie postmodernistinę agresiją mene, desperacijos apimtų vyresniosios kartos lietuvių modernistų retorikoje pasitaiko net nacių kultūrinės propagandos citatų, o abiem stovykloms priklausančių dailininkų ir jų aplinkos egocentrizmas neblėsta. Todėl noriu pasiūlyti keletą pamintijimų, kilusių kito pusrutulio šalyje – Urugvajuje. Kiek atitrauktas kontekstas galbūt leis pažvelgti į šią problemą be asmeniškumų, nes nebūtina tapatintis su kuria nors viena iš kariaujančių pusių. Paanalizuosiu iš pažiūros tipinį tarptautinį buržuazinio meno renginį, įvykusį šalyje, kuri dar tik bando priartėti prie europinių meno ritualizacijos tradicijų. Į tai pažvelgsiu iš psichodarbininko* pozicijos, nes noriu atskleisti, kas jau yra mirę, o kas vis dar gyva. Tai ypač gerai matyti, kai pradeda bendradarbiauti kraštutinai individualizuoti asmenys. Mirusius (švelniau tariant, reakcingus ir kontrproduktyvius) elementus įvardysiu kaip Buržuazinės plėtros zoną (BPZ), o gyvybingus (arba gimstančius) priskirsiu Proletarinės plėtros zonai (PPZ).[i]

Dar prieš vykdamas į Urugvajų, pajutau, kad iš tos man nežinomos šalies dvelkia gerai pažįstamos, bet išskirtinai fanatizuotos europocentrinės nuotaikos, todėl pasiryžau imtis būtent šių tendencijų analizės. Kai atsidūriau Urugvajuje, tiesiog pribloškė Europos įtaka šiai palyginti mažai šaliai ir jos žmonių mąstymui – vos ne kiekviename žingsnyje susidurdavau su man gerai pažįstamos kultūros pėdsakais, nukrypimais, išsigimimais, užuominomis, pastišais ir fetišais. Šios studijos tikslas nėra kritikuoti labai šiltai mane priėmusius vietos menininkus, greičiau jau tam tikras globalias tendencijas, kurias plačiu mastu plėtoja pats Hotel De Inmigrantes projektas, beje, šiuolaikinio neoliberalaus kapitalizmo sąlygomis jos atpažįstamos bet kuriame kultūros renginyje. Projektą Hotel De Inmigrantes (HDI) 2011 m. inicijavo Tomaszas Wendlandas, iš Lenkijos kilęs menininkas ir kuratorius, kartu su belgų konceptualistu Koenu Vanmechelenu. Pavadinimą jie pasiskolino iš XX a. pradžioje Buenos Airėse įsisteigusio imigrantų centro ir pritaikė meno projektui, keliančiam „socialines“ problemas. Pagrindinė tema – „migracijos ir globalizacijos procesų pasekmės individų tapatybėms“. Wendlandas apie HDI projektą 2012 m. rašė: „Mes surengsime seriją projektų, padėsiančių individams iš skirtingų vietų susieiti į pačius skirtingiausius vietinius kontekstus. Kiekvienas susibūrimas prasidės visuotiniu menininkų, atvykusių iš pačių skirtingiausių pasaulio kraštų, tarsi ir jie būtų imigrantai, susirinkimu, o baigsis tarptautine paroda. Menininkai kartu gyvens, dalysis erdve, maistu, priemonėmis, stengsis prisitaikyti prie vietos sąlygų, bandys komunikuoti ir privalės rasti galimybę organizuoti savo gyvenimą kurdami meną.

Labai dažnai mane kritikuoja, kad vartoju socialines klases apibūdinančius terminus „buržuazinis“ ir „proletarinis“. „Kur tu matai buržuaziją aplink save? Europa seniai gyvena be klasių, o už Europos jų apskritai niekada nebuvo... Koks tu proletaras?“ – remia prie sienos oponentai. Viena vertus, kaip teigia nenorintis būti įvardytas prancūzų komunizacijos teoretikas, buržuazija šiandien yra tokia stipri, kad išvengia grėsmės būti demaskuota. Antra vertus, identifikacijos procesas yra labai svarbi buržuazinės sąmonės ugdymo priemonė, kurią pagal kilmę galima laikyti ir europocentrizmo šerdimi. Todėl, vengdamas priskirti individus vienai ar kitai socialinei klasei, pabandysiu apibrėžti tam tikrus klasinius visuomenės sąrangos bruožus ir sąlygas, kokiomis šiandien kristalizuojasi tam tikros klasinės pozicijos.

First Three Sided Football World (C)Up was organized by Three Sided Football League and Museum Jorn in Silkeborg. There were planned to be invited teams from around the Europe and for the first time the principal players, thinkers, originators and propagators of the game invited for symposium. The event was arranged on the occation of Asger Jorn‘s 100 year aniversary and Museum Jorn found the best option to bring the game back to Asger Jorn‘s – originator‘s of the game – hometown, or simply back to its spiritual home.

DAMTP decided to participate in the event and to extend continuous agitation for „Smashing Psychic Slavery with Triolectics!“. That was the title of the announcement read during the symposium at Museum Jorn. Besides this paper were delivered multitudes of DAMTP papers and couple big papers-posters with triolectical drafts for understanding Identity-Class relationship within the formations of Zones of Bourgeois Development (ZBD) and/or Zones of Proletarian Development (ZPD). Finaly DAMTP declared its course on proletarianization with pointed attacks particularly on 2-dimentional bourgeois identity formations – nations. Particular scope was pointed towards Eurocentrist formation of the triolectics between British Economy, French Politics and German Idealism. Later in discussion Fabian Tompsett pointed to Moses Hess identical composition of concerns more then 150 years ago as presented in his „Holy History of Mankind“. That was not a first Quantum Superimposition (QS) of series – the first happen exactly when Fabian presented his concerns on „Situationist gaming & Three Sided Football“ and in the moment when he explained the term Lettrist Quantum Superimposition he mentioned acronym DAMTP as an example what simultaneously coud be read as Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics or DAta Miners and Travailleurs Psychique. Immediately afterwards DAMTP’s entered the symposium room. Second speaker was Mark Dyson, the founder of London Three Sided Football League. He introduced to general situationist concepts in their classical meaning. Actually situationist/marxist terminology dominated in all presentations.


During its presentation DAMTP revealed one more QS – the very fact that the first FIFA World Cup was held in Uruguay in 1930, and DAMTP’s just got from Uruguay with stolen flag from official building in Montevideo – we officially denounce to be accepted as nation (i. e. to be presented under Lithuanian flag, but we substitute it with an Uruguayan, but upturned one. Officially we presented global unuruguyan team in this tournament.

Having taught abroad in the Solomon Islands and currently working on school exchange programmes with my own school in Cambridgeshire and others in Sierra Leone and Pakistan, I was eager to see how this conference would address not just recent developments in education around the world but also the interaction between schools and teachers on a global scale.

Mary Compton, chair, introduced the day’s proceedings with the idea that the current attacks on state education in this country were not just about Gove but about global capitalism. She also told us, as if to illustrate her point, that there were some changes to the programme: the Ethiopian speaker had been refused a visa in a humiliating fashion by UKBA and Denis from Turkey had been refused permission to travel from his university. In contrast however she did also have some good news: Abters had to send a replacement speaker as he had been made rector of the autonomous university and was being inaugurated this weekend.

Christine Blower, General Secretary, next outlined the NUTs position with regard to education: in contrast to the government and corporations who see it as an economic good, the NUT maintains that education is a public good and a human right.

Next to speak was Susan Robertson of Bristol University to give an overview of GERM: the Global Education Reform Movement. She identified and debunked 3 myths and justification made by capitalists for GERM – accountability, autonomy and competition. These are very familiar for those of us with any experience of the academisation of schools in recent years: “accountability” as an excuse for excessive and damaging testing, “autonomy” for deregulation and “competition” for stratification.

Susan pinpointed not only the principal parties interested in GERM : Pearson (owners of EdExcel, Economist, FT etc who have moved out of housing and into education), Elseviere as well as what she labeled “venture philanthropists” including James Tooley, Michael Baiber, Bill Gates. She also identified some key moments in its development eg the 2011 International Summit on Teaching Profession which took place in New York attended by OECD and many multilateral agencies but not a single teachers union. Some strategies of corporations and governments e.g. PISA, TELUS and SABER were also mentioned as key moments of the ongoing global privatization of education.
