*New podcast: OBJECTHOOD #5, feat. Hito Steyerl, Helen Hester and Roula
by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros*.

This is a podcast about objects
but especially about some theories that have recently brought new
perspectives on objects from contemporary art and theory. In this episode,
we talk to *Hito Steyerl*, *Helen Hester* and *Roula Partheniou* about a
number of ramifications of the idea of object in their respective practices.

The 1997 track by Operator & Baffled that opens the programme, 'Things Are
Never', repeats over and over again that things are never quite the way
they seem. OBJECTHOOD #5 underlines the view of objects as points of
convergence of a multitude of social, political, economic relations,
trapped in matter and more or less made invisible by their everydayness.

Through her writing practice, films, and performative lectures, *Hito
Steyerl *considers the status of the image in an increasingly global and
technological world. Steyerl’s work is part of a lineage that includes
Harun Farocki and Chris Marker, blending aspects of documentary with the
film essay to explore globalization, political economies, visual culture,
and the status of art production.

*Helen Hester* is Head of Film and Media at the University of West London.
Her research interests include technofeminism, sexuality studies, and
theories of social reproduction, and she is a member of the international
feminist collective Laboria Cuboniks.

Toronto-based artist *Roula Partheniou* makes remarkable sculptural
replicas based on domestic items, construction materials and office
supplies. Whether stacked, shelved or left leaning against the wall, the
artist’s use of precise forms and a reductive colour palette elicits a
double take that invites viewers to pause and reconsider how their initial
reading of common visual cues can often be deceptive.
