Concerns of the fringe of the Fringe of Bilderberg 2013
“We’re tired of trees. We should stop believing in trees, roots, and radicles. They’ve made us suffer too much. All of arborescent culture is founded on them, from biology to linguistics. Nothing is beautiful or loving or political aside from underground stems and aerial root, adventitious growths and rhizomes.” Gilles Deleuze, A Thousand Plateaus: capitalism and schizophrenia.
The Bilderberg group is a long standing, closed door, talking shop which is attended by leaders of industry, finance and politics. Every year an exclusive group of influential players are invited to attend a clandestine conference in a heavily guarded, previously secret, location. Recent years have seen the group acknowledge their own existence and publicise the meeting’s agendas. Global economics, new technologies, and foreign affairs which impact on the US and Europe dominate the programme. There has been a long tradition of ‘conspiracy theorists’ denouncing the organisation, with some concerned that the group represents a secretive cabal of industrialists who seek to control the world’s resources and others who fear the establishment of a world government. The secretive nature of the discussions fuel these concerns and many question the legitimacy of allowing financiers and industrialists such exclusive access to elected governmental officials without any oversight.
Many would like to protest against the potential for abuses of power and the inappropriateness of our elected officials attending these events. In recent years a few committed individuals have been able to coordinate press activities and in 2013 the first Bilderberg Fringe Festival was held. This event sought to raise awareness of the Bilderberg group’s activities and voice concerns. It was attended by a wide range of speakers, concerned citizens, activists and alternative media providers. As a contributor to the arts program, I collected the varied stories of those attending the festival and attempted to draw out the connections between their multifaceted interests. Our conversations were open and free, and reflected the plurality of the demonstrators’ passions relating to our environment, our personal security and our communal well-being.
I constructed diagrams which laid bare the variety of subjects discussed and these developed and evolved over the course of the meeting as. This content directed drawings which traced the diametric opposition between the wants expressed in our open discussion and the perceived agenda of the corporate-political complex elite. The promotion of the interests of the powerful and the imposition of their will on others through rigid inhumane structures is resisted and undermined by the creative, mystical, and loving actions of those who seek defend the oppressed and act as stewards for our future generations. My thinking at the time was also influenced by Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, ‘The Network of Global Corporate Control’ Vitali et al, and the philosophies of Deleuze and Guattari.
A whiteboard was used to record the concerns (listed below) of the Bilderberg fringe, and to explore the connections between the various issues in conversation with Bilderberg protesters. These thoughts are reflected upon in the drawings below and above.
