Bojana Cvejić: The Social Choreography of Proceduralism

Social choreography offers a perspective of aesthetic continuum between everyday movement and dance. And, according to Andrew Hewitt (Social Choreography: Ideology as Performance in Dance and Everyday Movement, Duke, 2005) it redefines ideology’s mode of operation as “aesthetic” and “performative,” shifting focus from the mechanism of hailing subjects by way of power apparatuses to self-perpetuated embodiment, aesthetically produced and choreographically rehearsed social order. We might ask ourselves what is the social choreography that regulates the public sphere today. 

The lecture will focus on “proceduralism” as a characteristic form of social choreography in liberal democratic societies that operates in video-games, political management and artistic methodology. The main question is: What does the choreography of procedures reveal about the public and the eclipse of its political function today?
